Snowboarding Surfing the Earth

That most energizing and bold sport - snowboarding! Have you ever tried it?.Take a mountain of snow, a big flat curved board, step on, and whoosh! Off you go! You're surfing the Earth! It's exhilarating to the max.I really got into it when I moved to Colorado. I used to live in Michigan. Yeah, there's some skiing and snowboarding in Michigan, and most of the northern states.

But when you've got real mountains, there's just nothing like it. Nothing I ever skiied in Michigan compared to the slopes of Colorado. Nothing.I'm pretty agile and I've got the balance thing down, so it was easy for me to get the knack of moving my weight from heel to toe and maneuvering the board against the snow and gravity. I fell off plenty of times while I was learning.

And I still do it sometimes, but then, that's part of the fun.Just like any sport, you can't read about it and just do it. You have to get out there and strap your feet onto the board.

But if you're really new to the idea, you can get some information off web sites like what really works is watching the other people on the slopes and then playing with the techniques yourself. Experiment.

And definitely don't worry about it when you crash. In fact, expect it. Wipeouts are going to happen. It's inevitable.

If you're not crashing, you're not learning. Push your limits and test your skills.Oh, and if it's the middle of summer and you're just craving that surfing feel, and you're like, totally bored out of your gourd, you can go find some online snowboarding games. Yeah, I know.

It's tough when there's no snow, but if you're into games, you can do the moves in your head for a couple of months till it snows again.But right now, it's early in the season yet and the snow is just beginning, so get out there and play!.
