Word, so I'm going snowboarding tomorrow with some friends that have been going a while and I haven't gone in like 3 years. I'm going to have to keep up with them, so what are some things I'll have to remember while boarding?

I skateboard pretty decently, tre flips, sometimes. I'm not too bad so I'm pretty natural at balance.

Okay ^..

Like if I feel I'm going too fast, would I do a skateboarding "Powerslide" move and skid on my side while leaning back?

lucky bitches, my season is over, but some quick tips for you guys 1. try to stay on one edge at a time, unless approaching a jump or rail, otherwise your highly susceptible to catching an edge. 2. should you hit any jumps or rails its generally better to go too fast rather than too slow, as you may miss the landing/not make the gap. 3. during a turn once you are going pretty much straight down is when you should change the edge you're on. thats the basic tips i have, if your more specific i could probably help more.

ya that will work, make sure you go on your heel edge when doing so (assuming your facing the bottom of the hill during your "powerslide")

I got a terrain park at the place I'm going to. The hill is just basically a hill... I'm gonna be in the terrain park all day.

It would help to wear waterproof stuff, and if it's cold wear thermals and layers.

what i meant was even when you're going straight down try to still stay on one edge to avoid catching the other one, not necessarily riding sideways all the way down. as for the signature it had something to do with how a guy didn't want to hookup with girls that have braces cuz getting head would hurt, you were saying to just **** them instead
