In this segment, after you’ve learned your
J-turns, we’re going to go ahead and put those two different turns together. And, that’s
called linking your turns. Basically, you’re just going to want to do your J-turns with
a small pause instead of a stop in between. And, that’s how you do a Link Turn.

    Thanks very useful, I just done my level 1-2 at a indoor snow slope (UK) and this is the only thing we didn't do. Our instructor did however feel the need to teach us how to go over jumps (level 6)!!

    0:31 is where i clipped my board going backwards like 35mph and broke tailboan, where dangerous turn if you dont stay in control and if you go fast when you begginer like me.

    That's actually the current style. Well, I saw more people doing that last season. They call it a goggle sag.

    Im going to take a wild guess and say she has absolutely no AASI training… The mechanics of snowboarding are really complicated and are exceptionally difficult to explain to beginners. If you want real, effective instruction on riding a snowboard, buy REAL (and private) lessons.

    @arkemea Anger management fail… i have enough snow in austria & switzerland and love my hobbies :3 … still those goggles are a touch too big… but you first get out of puberty -> I still think the girl is just fucking bad at riding her board and there is some invention called belt because it looks shitty if girls have their baggies under their ass

    @shortizahn In northern countries like Sweden or Norway is baggypants a common thing. Beside, you dont really need the pants for anything but keeping you warm when you are snowboarding

    The goggles also prevents cold air from freezing your cheeks

    @fmlXskater22 well it's yellow and it has a hood to keep your ears warm and a pocket in the front to keep your hands toasty and to store items like your mitts and toque and goggles. She also wears it a size or two too big because baggy stylin. Folks call this style of sweatshirt many things but some common ones are bunny hug, kangaroo or just a hoodie. Hoodie is what the cool kids use though. You can also get ones that zip up in the front.

    That's generally how newbies are taught how to make turns. Point with your finger, keep your arm way out front to keep the front weighted.

    its for the noobies, guys over in snowworld holland told me the same on my first try, kinda helps the new people get a sense for direction and stearing 🙂

    same how football/soccer players learn to point at their targets first.

    (didnt do it on the first time because im bad ass like that.)

    @SK8Rlgd when you demo for lessons you have to over exadurate (dunno how to spell it) so the people your teaching can clearly see what it is your body is doing and the arms out help with keeping your shoulders level with the board and looking where you wanna go when starting out

    Not a good idea to use your arms… It would take a lot of effort to turn… For beginners go search for snowboardprofessor's tutorial… They have 9 videos for beginners that really help me when i started about a year ago… After 1 season, i learn how to link turns and curved…
