Riding switch (i.e. backwards, with your back foot forward) can be a lot of fun and very challenging at the same time. The ability to ride switch smoothly is one of the key skills that separates advanced snowboarders from aspiring intermediates. The problem, for many, is that they have picked up a few bad habits while learnign to ride normally (regular), which prevent them from making a smooth transition to switch riding. Even if you don't have this problem, making the change to riding with your "back" foot in front can be intimidating. So watch the video below and see how Sierra Snowboard Instructor Doug Fagel breaks down the key elements to mastering riding switch.
