STEP 1: In traversing using the toe edge, it is very important to look towards the direction where you want to go. Spread your arms to help in maintaining your balance.|
STEP 2: Then, turn your head and upper body towards the direction you wish to travel to. Shift more weight on your leading foot and move together with your other foot.|
STEP 3: Return your Snowboard to its original position across the fall line. Get ready to move to the other side of the slope. Look towards the direction where you want to go.|
STEP 4: Just like in Step 2, turn your head and upper body towards the direction you wish to travel to. Shift more weight on your leading foot and move together with your other foot.|
this is so simple, it pains me to see it with the grinds.
dam i cant do it i suck i ride hill side all the tyme hahaha
yeah I was on that yesterday. Nice tip as looking towards the mountain seemed a bit awkward to me, but get to practice this for sure before trying to go to tighter slopes. Forgetting to mention tiger balm and advil haha
Using your toes really helps to dig into harder snow and ice. Its all about toe pressure along the snowboards edge.
