Ever sport has proper steps to learn skills.
Snowboarding is an action sport but it’s more just for fun.
Due to that, it’s hard to find an actual proper way to learn snowboarding.
This is the professional coaching technique.

1. Step by Step approach
For example, who can land a 360 on medium size park jump even if 180 is still not easy on small size park jump?
Or who can make a front side board slide on the down rail even if they haven’t made the 50-50 on the narrow box?
If you are mentally nervous to try new tricks or challenging terrain, you can’t control your body because your muscles are something between relaxed and tight.
Also specific moves need you sometimes to lean deeply until your body has totally learned it.
So training environments must be easy and safe to start learning something new.
And gradually upgrade to challenging environment.
For example, to learn tricks, you can start from flat ground then move on to gentle slopes, side hits, and small park jumps and so on.
Also you can start from easy tricks like 180, and move on to 360, and 540 and so on.
There has to be a process to make snowboards at the snowboard factory.
They can’t skip any process because then it will be a faulty product.
Learning skills is the same, you have a process of step by step directions to learn one trick at a time.
Obey this rule then you can prevent getting injured and will learn the skill you want to learn.
2. Step down when things are not going well.
Practice is about repeating, trial and error.
You should keep trying until you get it.
But if you experience failure more than 5 times and feel like you’re getting nothing, you can start thinking to step down.
Step down means this.
360 to 180 or down box to flat box or mogul to groomed terrain.
You can’t improve if your body and mind are not ready with that terrain, items, and speed.
Step down to relax your body and mind, and you can control your movement and learn skills for sure.
Then your moves will be second nature, which will clear your mind and let you step up again.
You probably don’t want to step down and be disappointed in yourself.
But remember, continuing to fail over and over again without changing your environment or circumstances will cause you to get stuck.
I often saw this situation in my coaching experience.
Do you want to get nowhere in 3 days with a big jump, or 3 hours to learn 1 trick on a small jump?
