One of the most important things in snowboarding
is your balance. You need to be able to control your balance and know where you want to put
it. If you want all your balance on your heel or on your toes or on your nose or where ever
you want your balance to be. You’ve got to know how to put it there. How to; that’s how
you get down the mountain. Doing carves and falling leaves and everything is all centered
around balance and where you can put the most pressure on your snowboard to make your turns.
But, balance is key. How to get balance on your snowboard is just your feet have to be
centered with your shoulders. If you have good control in your knees and you can feel
where your center is; that’s how you can tell where your balance in the bottom of your board
is. Because if you have a; if you’re leaning too much on your toes you’re going to be on
your toe edge. If you’re leaning too much on your heels you’re going to be on your heel
edge. What balance does the best is if you can just figure that middle weight and be
perfectly centered. Keeping your back and your shoulders always in a squared up position
is always going to help your balance no matter if you’re falling over or if you’re trying
to get up. You just need to focus on being strong and knowing that you need to equal
it out and you’ll be good, good to go.
