1. The wheelie
Yes, it’s a beginner snowboarding trick, but once you’ve mastered the wheelie, you’ve got the foundation for most other snowboarding tricks.
So, what’s a snowboarding wheelie? It’s lifting the front of your snowboard clean up off the slope. First, practice the motion off the slopes. Stand with your feet in position then lean back onto your rear leg. Once you’ve transferred your body weight to your rear leg, gently lift your front leg off the ground.
Once you’re comfortable with that, take to the snow. Start with a flatter, gentle slope, building up over time. Practice both lifting your board and lowering it back into position, staying as balanced as possible.
Now onto the fun stuff…
