Hobart, WA (PressExposure) September 13, 2009 -- Snowboarding Zone has just released a new section of their website that has all of the basics on Snowboarding Basics. This is part of a new community website that is all about Snowboarding Basics. Members and non-members can visit this Snowboarding Basics page on the Snowboarding Zone website for free at: http://snowboardingzone.org/.
Here is an excerpt from the new Snowboarding Basics information webpage:
âSnowboarding is a cross between skateboarding and skiing - just like its name implies. The primary equipment is just the snowboard itself and snow. Different styles of snowboarding, and everyone likes to put their own tricks, twists and turns on it to show off their maneuverability skills.
Whether it is just boarding down a set of descending slopes without wiping out or using rails and the half-pipe to do the tricks and stunts, snowboarding does require a great deal of skill. This is why it has become so popular in a short period of time and is considered to be an extreme sport.
You donât get to use poles like you do in skiing to help turn the corners or to stop or gain speed. Itâs just you, the board and the snow; knowing what you are doing is a definite must. Without proper skills and techniques, you could become hurt in an accident. Flying down that slope at the speeds that snowboards are capable of is very dangerous; therefore, this sport is considered extreme and also dangerous and it does require that you know the basics before you actually try the hard course and learn the hard way.
Many skiers and skateboarders have crossed the border from their original sport into the sport of snowboarding. Snowboarding is actually more challenging and demanding than either skiing or skateboarding and thatâs why it tends to draw participants from the other sports."
