OK, so strictly speaking, it's been out for a little while, but we thought we'd take this opportunity to draw your attention to our all-singing, all-dancing new Snowboarding Basics guide - the very first of its kind. Packed with trick tips, handy hints and other useful info, this is the only thing you need to take your riding from novice to next-level. And best of all, it's absolutely FREE! Yep, we're giving this issue away at selected snowboard shops. Here's what you can expect to find inside when you pick your copy.
Trick tips from the pros, shot by the best photographers, and explained clearly with simple step by step instructions make this the ultimate snowboarding How To. The tricks are divided up into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced, making progression easy and obvious. We've got the full spectrum of park features covered too, so you can learn moves on kickers, jibs, in the pipe or even just on the piste.
We talk you through the basic grabs, showing you exactly how to tweak your tricks for extra style points. We also give you the lowdown on the illegals - those grabs that no self-respecting rider would be seen dead doing!
Park obstacles are explained, including the anatomy of a perfect kicker and the various types of jibs and bonks - so you need never wonder what the hell you're supposed to do with a tractor tyre again!
We've packed the guide with helpful information on what kit you'll need to get started, where to ride, and how to get started on your shred career. Not only that, but there are tips on sponsorship, riding powder, and doing a season for when you want to move to the next level.
Whether you're looking to get into snowboarding for the first time, or wanting to nail those cab 5s, there's something for you in the snowboard basics guide. So get yourself down your local shred shop (see the table below for a list of stockists) and grab yourself a copy! After all, it is free...
