Learn to snowboard
the best tips for ultimate fun on the slopes
Your first snowboarding holiday is just around the corner and soon you will celebrate your premiere on the board? If you're looking for a guide with tips and tricks for snowboard beginners, you've come to the right place - our experts at SPORT 2000 rent have put together the most important information for you here.
Is snowboarding more strenuous than skiing?
You control the snowboard with the help of balance and weight shifting. Especially for beginners, it can be unusual at the beginning to stand sideways to the slope - and not straight towards it as in skiing. However, the coordination between legs, body movement and the use of the arms makes skiing more challenging. All this has to be perfectly coordinated.
Both sports are physically demanding and can leave you with sore muscles the next day. Skiing and snowboarding mainly use the thigh muscles, the buttocks and the calves. Snowboarding also involves weight shifting. This also increases the use of muscle groups in the back and abdominal region.
Tips for beginners: How do you learn to snowboard properly?
- The right glide: It all starts with gliding on the board. You can master slopes quickly by staying on the edge of your heel and gliding slowly down the slope.
- Turning: Turning requires a unique rhythm led by your front foot and followed by your back foot.
- Falling down properly: One of the most important lessons in snowboarding is that of falling down properly - if you fall down incorrectly, it can lead to injury. Therefore, the most important rule when falling down is: Always fall up the hill. Whether your back or your chest is to the mountain, falling up is always better than falling down.
- Straighten helmet & get back up: Since the mountain is sloping, you fall up a shorter distance, and less distance means less speed, less energy, and less impact when you fall.
When getting back up, you basically have two options:
- Getting up via the heel edge: The most common way is to get up via the heel edge. To stand up over the edge of your heels, pull your feet as close as possible to your body with your knees bent. Then lean forward, press the edge of your heel into the snow and slowly stretch your legs out, keeping your balance with both hands in the snow.
- Standing up over the edge of the toes: It is easier to stand up over the edge of the toes than over the edge of the heels. To do this, roll onto your stomach, pull your feet towards your stomach and press the edge of your toes into the snow while supporting yourself uphill with your hands in the snow.
How do I find the right snowboard?
The most important thing when choosing the right board is that the equipment is adapted to your body size and weight. This applies not only to the clothing, but also to the board itself. In order to control it perfectly, it must also be perfectly adapted to you. The factors of hardness and length of the snowboard are particularly relevant:
- Hardness: If you are a snowboard beginner, you should opt for a softer board. These forgive small mistakes. If, on the other hand, you already have a lot of snowboarding experience, a hard model is a good choice. Hard snowboards hold the edge perfectly and are ideal for higher speeds.
- Length: The snowboard length should be based on your height and weight. To find the right snowboard length, you can consider the following: The taller and heavier you are, the longer your board should be. The classic freestyle board should be set upright between your chin and nose.
At SPORT 2000 rent, our experts get the best out of your possibilities and abilities. Get the kick - and enjoy the harmonious turns and weightless floating in deep snow!
What equipment do I need for snowboarding?
Snowboarding is - just like most other winter sports - very equipment-intensive. If you are a beginner, the first thing you have to do is get to grips with the most important items you need to get started in the sport. Before your first snowboarding holiday, you are probably asking yourself: What do I need? We'll tell you!
- The snowboard: The snowboard is shaped so that you can simply push it into the snow. When the rider then stands on the board, a force acts on the ends of the snowboard to propel it. This keeps the entire length of the edges in contact with the snow, allowing for precise movements and speed.
- The binding: The snowboard binding is the foundation of a good snowboarder's riding experience. The binding connects you to your snowboard and transfers your muscle movements and power to your board.
- The boots: Choosing the right snowboard boots is also important for having as much fun as possible while snowboarding. As a beginner, it is best to start with a soft boot.
- Snowboard clothing: When buying your snowboard clothing, you should make sure that you stay warm and dry, can move freely and that sweat is transported away well. A waterproof outer layer and breathable ski underwear made of synthetic material will help.
- Snowboard helmet: A good helmet is compulsory in many Austrian ski resorts. Safety always comes first and especially when snowboarding you will fall down a lot and depend on the protection of a helmet.
- Snowboard goggles: Snowboard goggles protect your eyes from snow, rain, sun and wind. For beginners, we recommend buying snowboard goggles with all-weather lenses.
- Gloves: Snowboard gloves such as mittens protect your hands from wetness and cold. They should be waterproof and breathable.
