Snowboarding Activitiesfrom: Maxx Adventure Travel
If you're doing some snowboarding activities then here are some snow boarding activities that have been tried in the past, and the kind of activities you many want to try. The fact is, when I first tried snow boarding I had only been skiing a couple of times, so I was really a newbie who was looking to have some fun and experience snowboarding activities for the first time.
Me and my friends decided to go and see what kind of fun we could have on the slopes, and we sure did have heaps of fun. In fact, far more than I would ever have imagined. We went out there, and because we had a rough idea how to ski, we were far more cocky than we should have been. But that didn't stop us from having the most fun in our lives. The slope was very quiet, which just made it so much better.
The way you move on a snowboard just makes you feel so much more in control, however you feel like you're taking more risk. When you're skiing, i's just that little bit too comfortable at times, but the fact is, you never actually notice it until you give it a try. It really doesn't surprise me that people are choosing to give up skiing and are taking up snow boarding instead, since you cant actually jump on ski's. OK, it's perhaps possible, but you can'r really suggest they're customized for doing Ollie's. That's why I have to tell you that when I'd completed my first jump on a snowboard and successfully landed, I was sure to give it a try again.
My friends and I decided the most fun adventure we could do was have a race down the slope, and this what we did. I was actually very nervous, as I was anxious about winning, but I knew if the worst came to the worst, I could always say I tried my best, and trying my best is certainly what I did. Over the next few minutes as we went down one of the most daring runs on one of our first tries, I was sure I was going to win.
That isn't to say I would since I could have hit a tree, or took a wrong turn and in the end I did the later. I lost and I was gutted, but the exhilaration just meant I wanted to do more. I proposed doing it again, and everybody was up for it. It was the fact that when we finished the first run, we'd managed to grab some "Air-time" and I can assure you, if you think that's good on ski's you haven't experienced nothing yet.
The main problem with doing this run was that we were failing to abide by the rules of the slope by doing aggressive turning and twisting. The last run my friend Alan actually pushed Collin into a tree for a laugh. Although most people wouldn't see this as being fun, it was the kind of thing that happened during the excitement and I have to tell you, this snow boarding day has to be one the best days of sport I've ever experienced. Even when I go skiing and snow boarding these days, I often think back to the adventures we got up to that day on the slopes.
I must to say, skiing just doesn't seem to compare to snow boarding and it really isn't surprising to see people migrating from snow boarding to skiing. But perhaps we really shouldn't compare them, I suppose they're both good in their own way.
