Snowboarder's Start-up: A Beginner's Guide to Snowboarding
Here is the essential beginner’s guide to the fastest growing sport in the country according to the National Sporting Goods Association. The most important questions--how to stop, how to turn, and how to avoid the crash and burn syndrome--are answered because the author takes the reader along as he learns the sport himself. Basic gear, preparation, technique, and safety are also discussed.
