The Thrill Of Snowboarding For Those Who Are Unfamiliar With The Sport

Jan 2, 2008
Even though people didn't really get the concept of snowboarding until the 1970s it didn't really become part of the winter Olympics nor popular until 1998. Today this is the sport that everyone is waiting for when watching the winter Olympics.

So due to many people snowboarding and many people wanting to learn many resorts offer rentals and free lessons on most of their slopes. They would want you to learn from someone who can teach rather than just renting you a board and having you go bust your rear on the hard ice.

Many people say that you should learn how to ski before you snowboard this however is not true I have a friend that a few years back had just started surfing in the earlier months like September through December and in January went snowboarding in Colorado and got pictures of him doing airs and rails. So snowboarding shouldn't and can't be that hard if he can just go for 2 weeks and get good at the sport. He wasn't even that good on a surfboard and he did better on a snowboard it looked then a surfboard and on top of all that he even bought a snowboard. That's how easy and fun he said it was.

A lot of the resorts often host contest for snowboarding so if you are there and have been snowboarding before you can enter to win.

Also there are many big companies that come to these events when being hosted so it may be your shot to get a sponsor or two while boarding in some of these events. You never know if you do well enough you may become a sponsored rider. Just go out and try your best and make the best of what you have.

Today you can even have your snowboard custom made unlike back in the day you had one type of board that you could ride. Not today, today you can custom make a board to the size and figure that you want it and even have it painted the way you want. All you do is go to a shaper or maker and have it made.

One of the problems with snowboarding just like any other sport is injuries. You will need to wear a helmet when snowboarding so that you don't crack your noggin. So when you go to the icy slopes or wherever it is that you may go you need to wear protection so you don't become injured on your trip seeing as that can cause a short trip. So go out today and start riding who knows you might be better at snowboarding then the sport you already do or compete in. it is easy or everyone is the northern states wouldn't be doing it. So go get you a snowboard and start trying to ride before you get to an age to wear you cannot even get out of the house.
