2/19/2011 10:20:38 AM My 5 friends and I were in there, yes. The damage was mostly to the car and the skibox. All in all we were extremely lucky. Considering the RV we drove, I don't think we could've done it much better. Nice read though, those eHow articles.
2/19/2011 4:29:22 AM Back in December we hit the line of the 'sparelane'/'flightlane' in Belgium. It was iced up and super slippery. We instantly went into a slip. Four swings later we're on our side losing our velocity by sliding over the asphalt. Fortunately no one hit us nor did we hit anything. No cars, no guardrail. Luckily no one was seriously injured. Only a minor shoulder injury occurred. Drive safely!
2/13/2011 8:41:43 AM Definitely 180s on small bumps. The risks involved in a flip do not even remotely wage up to the small step of jumping a 180. That being said, if you know HOW to make a flip, have a powder landing and good protection I applaud you to try a flip. It is a great feeling to make a flip. You probably know this if you are familiar with somersaults.
2/13/2011 8:09:32 AM They adjusted the Amazon page to display the big dimensions. The search for a pocket sized trick book continues!
2/9/2011 9:00:15 AM So I received the same book again. With the big dimensions again. This time I get to keep the book again and get a refund, but in addition they closed down the Amazon page associated with the product. Sigh.
2/7/2011 6:28:11 AM One of the many pros of being a Physical Education teacher/student.
2/5/2011 5:54:41 AM Yeah, because a trampoline is easier than a trick book (?!?!) Actually, for me it is... Seeing how I have trampolines at work.
2/4/2011 10:07:36 AM I have a smartphone and that's a good idea, in addition to a book. The book I wrongly received has been refunded and an Amazon employee told me I could keep it or donate it. I ordered the same book again hoping I get the pocket size version. Is there a good source for videos in iPhone format I can put on my phone before I go snowboarding? Instead of youtubing while I'm on the slopes...
2/4/2011 5:31:48 AM I disagree. I study Physical Education and I can learn a lot from a book. The thing is: I don't know how to do the trick. I read up on how to do the trick and I practise it. Snowboard tricks don't come naturally for me and I don't have people in my surroundings that know how to do a variety of tricks.
2/1/2011 7:18:54 AM Amazon listed the book as 4" by 4". The book I just received is 8.2" by 9.4". Not what I expected and slightly disappointed. What do I now? And in future orders how do I make sure the size is now off? The search is once more on for a pocket sized trick book...
1/19/2011 10:54:57 AM That was quite the search, but the 4"x4" is nowhere to be found, except on the American Amazon page... I ordered it and in 1-2 months it will arrive... Oh well, let's hope it's the right thing!
1/18/2011 3:26:03 PM Very nice fostpaint. That might be the book I'm looking for. I only scanned the covers on Amazon since I knew I can't buy items there myself. Amazon to the Netherlands support is worthless, unless you have a creditcard, which I personally don't. By the looks of the cover it's a regular size paperback, but looking at more pictures it does seem like the 4"x4". It's also in the description. Great! Too bad all other sites I know that accept my payment options and have shipping to the Netherlands only have the paperback version. I'll get my hands on someone's credit card info or order it at my local American Bookstore.
1/18/2011 4:03:56 AM I am no snowboard expert and I do not know if tricks are explained correctly. It is up to somehow else with more experience to explain and correct such a thread. That would be an awesome thread. However, I do know the product I am looking for already exists and I wish to acquire it. That is the purpose of this thread. I applaud your great idea. Regardless, I will have to pass on executing it.
1/17/2011 11:37:52 AM That's the point. I don't remember and I want this book to remember it.
1/17/2011 5:33:31 AM The point is I only ride once a year. And I forget almost everything I learned over the years. I do remember my knowledge during my week of snowboarding. But the 'build up' takes too long without visual aid. I really need a book with pictures and text to just know how things are done. I had a freestyle teacher that had an amazing book just like that, so I know it's out there too. He mentioned two aspects of a frontflip I should focus on while making one and I landed my first frontflip that year. I am a PE student in my last year of study and I can honestly say I can translate text and pictures to action movement very easily and pretty good.
