Try Skating First

Chad started snowboarding with the intention of learning new techniques that he could transfer over to his skateboarding career, but he soon found that the reverse was true as well. Skateboarding teaches you much of the form that you will need to apply when you snowboard, plus it is a much more accessible sport. If you can gain some degree of competency on a skateboard you should find it easier to learn how to snowboard.

Get An Instructor

Regardless of whether you learn to skate or not, it is still a good idea to spend a few sessions with a snowboard instructor so that they can teach you proper technique and form. This will eradicate any mistakes you might make, creating a foundation that you can build on over time.

Keep Trying

Snowboarding can often be a difficult sport to master due to the level of physical fitness and balance that you are going to need to succeed.  Chad Boulter tells people to keep plugging away when they feel disheartened, as everything that you learn is eventually going to click into place and you will find yourself improving and having much more fun.
