what's up guys this is kevin from snowboardprocamp.com in this video i want to give you some tips on intermediate turns these tips will take your beginner turns to the next level or help you improve your existing turns there are three parts to focus on controlling your speed steering your board and the shape of your turns the first step is to control your speed by spring snow at the side of each turn by spring snow at the side you'll be controlling your speed throughout the turn and keep your speed much more consistent so as you start your turn put pressure on your back foot this will spray snow out the side and control your speed try to spray an equal amount of snow on each turn to control your speed evenly the second step is to see your snowboard more aggressively by using your back hand and your front knee for each turn keep your back hand over your tail so that your back hand and tail are working together this will get your tail around much faster especially on your toe turns having your back hand over your tail will also keep your body Square to your snowboard keeping you more balanced use your front knee to steer your board as well turning your knee out for each heel turn and turn your knee in for each toe turn using your front knee will help steer each turn more aggressively the third step is to have a fluid turn shape by keeping your snowboard on an angled downhill because you're controlling your speed throughout your turn you don't need to turn your snowboard completely sideways at the end of each turn after you control your speed around your turn you can let your board go on an angled downhill where you can change edges to get into the next turn changing edges on an angle will make your turns much more fluid and keep your speed more consistent put these three skills together in your turns and it'll be in control on intermediate slopes the turns take time and practice and if you're having trouble getting them dialed feel free to leave questions in the comment box subscribe to check out upcoming videos and check out the links in the description to Facebook and Twitter for live updates and photos

    In my humble opinion you shouldn’t really post these videos. It’s not an effective way to snowboard, and people who learn from this will inevitably go wrong as the way you teach is not in harmony with the boards performance… more so it’s taking clients away from actually qualified instructors who have gone through years of training and experience to get to where they are. You might consider doing the same if your really passionate about teaching snowboarding.

    Do you have any suggestions from switching from a rocker board to camber?

    I’m new to snowboarding and did about 8 times so far. I’m having trouble in turning n shaping. After each turn I over commit and end up stopping. Both toe and heel side. It’s hard to stop halfway of the turn and switch sides. Any suggestions.

    Biggest thing about turns is not being scared and leaning forward and putting your weight on your front knee. If you lean back, your turn wont initiate, you'll pick up speed , and probably fall . :/

    i believe on a beginner turn video you mentioned letting the board run flat in between turns. i guess at this level that doesn't apply as much and it's more about changing turns on an angle yeah?

    How stiff do you prefer your board or would be good for intermediate riding ?

    Hey Kevin, it's an old video but maybe you still can give me a tip. I'm riding regular so I can have my stronger foot on the nose for stiring and controlling my board and having my weaker foot on the tail (i ride with a little setback to support my weaker backleg). When i try to initiate a heel turn my back leg breaks out from time to time cause it's not that strong and cant handle an even weight destribution that well. From time to time when I'm midcarve on my heelside the board starts to shake and loses the edge, sending me on my butt. Do you have any tips for me on that problem? Leaning more on the tail or what would be the trick? Toesides is no prob at all. Cheers, Sean!!

    I'd say I'm not doing bad (for a beginner) but I am slowly developing a fear of switching sides unintentionally, leading to aggressive (and over time painful and tiring) falls. I have protection and clothing thick enough to keep going after a fall but would love to get advice on how to make sure my downhill edge doesn't catch unintentionally (assuming there are ways other than practice) and any other ways to make sure my board turns enough for each switch.

    this helped me out a lot, thanks! I snowboarded for like the fourth time yesterday and could turn all the way down the hill but at the end i lost concentration for a second, caught an edge, fell and dislocated my elbow!
    can't wait to recover and try it again though, i think i'm getting the hang of it now!

    What is the difference between turning like in this video, and carving like in your other tutorials?

    I'm big and tall (186 cm, 118 k), so controlling my speed is my biggest challenge. I'm a (sloppy) intermediate, but nobody ever mentioned the "spray" in the middle of the turn until I saw your video. I'm going to work on that! Thank you.

    Any other tips on slowing (or a special video on the subject) would be awesome. Narrow cat tracks are the worst because I can pick up a lot of speed there (just from gravity) if I'm not careful, and I'm always afraid of colliding with slower moving people.

    Kevin, I am scared to make turns, especially toe side. So I basically just go down the mountain on my heel edge.

    Love your detailed instructional videos, I've been watching for 2 years now. I've been snowboarding for 6 years now but I only get to go once a year. My question is how can I fix the feeling of turning better on steeper runs. I can hit blues and blacks all day however sometimes I feel I'm a little hesitant in making turns at a faster speed. Is this just a confidence issue or am I doing something wrong. Any advice would be great I'm headed to Wolfcreek Co in January.

    Hey man!! Love the videos and have found them so useful. One question I have is, my tail always comes out really far when I'm on my heal edge and I'm having trouble then initiating my toe turn. Any little tweaks I should consider?? Also do you do lessons near Vancouver?

    I seem to have trouble getting back straight from my turns. Once I make a toe side turn, I am not able to get back straight. I angle my shoulders back straight, and push down on my front heel, but all I do is catch an edge on the back of my board and fall
