How to Snowboard – the basics of riding for your first day || REI

Ready to hit the slopes? We partnered with Amy Gan of the American Association of Snowboard Instructors (AASI) to teach you the basics of snowboarding. In this video, we cover everything from your snowboard stance to making J-turns and linking your turns down the mountain.

What you need to know:

Stance and skating on your board – 0:35

Gliding and J-turns – 2:48

Traversing – 6:43

Connecting turns – 9:54

We also have a video on how to put on your snowboard gear—check out that video here: https://youtu.be/nkjZqq8pPWQ
