I discovered it an extremely easy brickandmortarphilly.come swap indigenous skate to snow, i guess 5 -6 days and I might go pretty much anywhere, together for how well ns did it, fine thats an additional story

Get top top the snow, you’ll have actually a blast, i promise

A lot of of skills transfer from skating brickandmortarphilly.come snowboarding.Unfortunately the actual basic riding that a snowboard is quite different. Yet if you are a lengthy boarder and love act slides, you will pick it increase quick since beginner turns space basically one continuous slide native the top to the bottom.

You are watching: Is snowboarding like skateboarding

If you are a park/street ska then i rebrickandmortarphilly.commend obtaining at least one lesson brickandmortarphilly.come learn just how turn on a snowboard cause it’s not at all favor tilting the board and letting the trucks revolve you… cause there’s no trucks.

If you are a park/street ska the great news is once you have gained the basics down, the tricks will certainly brickandmortarphilly.come an extremely quick to you since they room all based on skate and surf tricks.Learning to roll on a skateboard is easy, finding out to journey a snowboard is harder yet (imo) most of the tricks space easier. Other than you can’t jump off.

Give that a go Wazza, you won’t regret it

i used to skate.. Around 10 year ago.. Hurt myself badly and also gave it up.. (just setravel btw)

i was initially a skier.. And swapped over 2 years ago.. early to negative knees.. And i gibberish looked back.. Ns dont think i will ski again.. Boarding is just so much fun.. And since mine love the boarding can only it is in satisfied 4-5 month a year.. Ns neeed somethig to carry out in summer.. Therefore im back on a skateboard.. (if it no for eye boarding i never ever would have tied that again) and also sooo wobbly haha.. They are kind of similar (i to be told surfing is closer to snow boarding - no trucks or wheels.. - ns cant surf.. Therefore im just going turn off what ive been told..) however im much an ext game to try stuff top top a snowboard.. As the landing is so much softer.. Climate say asphalt.. Lol! i was hitting little jumps on mine snowboard.. Id never have dreamt of the on my skateboard back when i used to ice skating everywhere..

but together andy said.. Give it a go.. I recognize im glad ns did..

it should.. That is all about edges.. And how friend lean, etc.. Ns picked it increase in about 5-6 job (well around 3 realistically.. Due to the fact that the first few days i had a massive plank of lumber that was so heavy.. As soon as i swapped end to one more board.. Around 1/2 the weight and also 9cms smaller.. Ns was making the down environment-friendly only stacking when or twice if world got in my method etc..) after acquiring my very own board.. Ns was hitting blue runs in 2 days.. And also black 3-4 days after that.. (taking the blacks slowly though as they were tree runs..)

now after a season (22 days v my very own board..) im pretty confident to carry out 95% the the runs through out any type of hassles..

in speak that.. We had a freind.. Who had never been to the snow.. But plays ice hockey.. Run on a board.. Carry out a blue run with in an hour.. And also hitting jumps after 3 days..

You was standing sideways

Thats around the just thing really. Foot place is various I don’t ride mine skateboard like a duck. It’s a similar motion once carving however edges are a different ball game and the way you usage the shoulders and head isn’t too much different.

Get out, have fun ! :D

If you want similar to snowboarding, go shot wakeboarding. Also going to Penrith wake park and also hire a pro board (like $20 for 2 hours) and it’s the closestly you’re going to acquire imo.

The closest thing to snowboarding is skiing.

Similarities brickandmortarphilly.come skateboarding are once hitting rails. Skaters it seems ~ to carry out rails top top a snowboard therefore effortlessly (rails not boxes) there is no needing to be able to snowboard with any type of greater skill than the really basics. A good skater v a few snowboarding class will almost instantly have good grab/jump skills.

Surfing is snowboarding backwards, surfers transfer so many bad habits on brickandmortarphilly.come the hill - brickandmortarphilly.completely wrong load distribution, until they obtain into powder, then it’s video game on.

Skateboarding is a great ay to hone and also progress surfing skill.

Snowboarding IS skiing ~ above one ski with both feet on that ski but standing sideways. If you have the right to ski it’s an easy transition just be all set for a few days of disappointed of no getting roughly as fast as you execute on skis or law blue/black runs without feeling favor a punter. And your chest and also arm muscles will ache from obtaining up every time friend fall, there are plenty of muscle teams you use snowboarding that aren’t used skiing.

Understanding skiing and also edge control makes for a much MUCH better snowboarder.

As a skater at the very least you will understand if your continuous or goofy.

Getting earlier onto the wakeboard this year has shown me simply how various they are, like Spaz said over its favor with surfing, the weight circulation is so different. Top top a wakeboard you are trying to save the sleep out and are putting all her weight to the back of the board until you load it approximately jump as soon as you room on a difficult edge. The hardest point i uncovered when learning to snowboard (2 seasons ago) to be i had to stand center if anything a little much more weight ~ above my leading foot. I just couldnt gain the plank to operate just how it was meant to top top the snow, because i was standing prefer i perform on my snowboard and also was only using fifty percent of the boards edge and also it would certainly slide best out ~ above me. That stated still get out brickandmortarphilly.come cables, since its mad fun, ns loving being back behind the boat much more this year, and also keen to hit up cables to, only been once in my life last year.
