13. Get them lessons with someone who knows what they are doing
Please make sure your kids spend some time with someone who knows what they are doing.
Having a properly qualified instructor (who spends all season coping with kids of all shapes, sizes and skills) guide your groms through the early stages of their snowboarding progression is an absolute must-do.
Instructors don’t lose patience like you do, they don’t get frustrated every time they see their own weaknesses manifest in their child, and they know the best techniques and methods for encouraging progression at the right pace.
But most importantly – they will give you a few hours to go and shred with your wife/husband/buddies, and remember what it was like to be a kid yourself.
