    About the Author 107
    Even when we begin a journey all on our own, we always take along those who
    have influenced, guided and helped us before. Nowhere is this more true than
    my journey in winter sports in general and my experiences in snowboarding in
    Andy Boorman of the USASA introduced me to carving on an alpine board ages
    ago. In Val Gardena, Georg Rabanser was always forthcoming with advice. Uwe
    Beier of Germany helped me with parts of the text and gave sound advice on
    stance as well as rotational techniques. Patrice Fivat, Jacques Rilliet and Nils
    Degremont at have been true comrades in arms, giving me
    advice, access to images and plenty of encouragement. Heinrich Bergmüller and
    his assistant Alexandra Baldwin were great with guidance and support.
    Above all, Christian Hrab, former Head Coach of the Canadian National
    Snowboard Team and current Director of Sport Development of the Canadian
    Snowboard Federation has been a veritable guru and an encyclopaedic source of
    knowledge, coaching advice and inspiration.
    Very nice folks at FIS Headquarters in Switzerland—Marcel Looze, Simon
    Felsberger and Director of Photography Oliver Kraus—gave me access to all
    sorts of photography and video clips for some sequences created by my friend
    Pat Maley of Eastman Kodak and some made by me. TK Gore of
    went out of his way to find some information and also give me encouragement.
    Troy Cusson, PR Director at Bristol Mountain, was generous with slope time at
    Bristol, where Greg Francis was kind enough to take photographs of Christina
    Duschenko, Tom Polanski and yours truly. And Vahur Krouverk was a real
    gentleman in giving us permission to use some of the
    sequences that he stitched together. Dave Puskas, who knows nothing about
    snowboarding, read the manuscript and offered sound advice on matters of
    Rick Remmy, owner and designer of Heelside Snowboards, has kept me in fine
    equipment over the years, a fact that has made a real difference in my riding and
    for which I am grateful.
    If everyone in the world were as generous as these people, the world would be
    much better off. Each of them embodies the Olympic Ideal, something that we
    should all strive for in life:
    The goal of Olympism is to place everywhere sport at the service of the
    harmonious development of man, with a view to encouraging the
    establishment of a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of human
    The purpose of this book is to introduce experienced riders, young racers,
    coaches and parents to the fundamentals of snowboard carving and racing.
    This guide was written in the hopes that it will raise the level of freeriding and,
    perhaps more to the point, spur people on to develop snowboard racing
    programs all over the world that are affordable, open to all, and, of course, just
    plain fun. Programs are the key to development, simply because, young people
    learn this sort of thing better in a group where camaraderie, friendship and
    sharing create the sort of growth that racing demands of its participants.
    The material presented here is based on my own learning experience in
    snowboarding as a learner, rider, coach, college professor and sports enthusiast.
    The general principles developed here are based on:
    1) Peer reviewed science-based scholarship in sports science and movement
    2) My own experience teaching and exploring movement science in our Arts
    Program at SUNY Empire State College in Rochester, NY. In particular,
    my professional association with noted dancer, choreographer and
    movement specialist, Liz Clark.
    3) The teachings and ideas of the some of elite-level snowboard coaches I
    have learned from such as Christain Hrab, Uwe Beier, Georg Rabanser
    and Andy Boorman
    4) My experiences studying skiing with Werner Perathoner in Val Gardena,
    Jimmy Murray in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Fiffi Steinrotter at Brantling
    and, above all, my good friend Greg Gurshman here in the States
    After coaching for a fewyears, observing snowboard instruction on the hill and
    talking with fellow boarders, I concluded three things.
    First, snowboarding is one of the most open and welcoming of the winter sports.
    Surfers are the best people on the hill. Young old, new, experienced—everyone is
    welcome and the community is always there to give you encouragement. If you
    extend riding a plank to warm weather rider on a skateboard, it is downright
    neighborly, something you see in practically every residential neighborhood in
    the country and something you can try with even a ten-dollar skateboard from a
    discount store.
    Second, the level of athletic ability you find on the hill in snowboarding is
    amazing. For a sport that punishes as physically as tackle football, requires the
    coordination of gymnastics and demands the finesse of golf, there is never a
    shortage of enthusiastic self-taught young people who continually improve from
    year-to-year. Who doesn’t wish they could go through the terrain park like many
    of the kids we see each and every time we are on the hill?
    Third, the actual level of basic carving skills that are the basis of slalom, giant
    slalom and boardercross is low. People slide their turns all the time, with few, if
    any, actually able to carve a clean line down the hill with their board accelerating
    on its nearly frictionless edge drawn ever faster by gravity. There is great
    creativity for amazing tricks all over the mountain, but not sound fundamentals
    when it comes to carving. That’s the reason for this book.
    And everyone should read it in that spirit of trying to bring something new to a
    wonderful sport. There are no secrets to snowboarding. Neither are there “quick
    fixes” nor “quick studies” where you can learn, in “Three Easy Lessons,” the
    hush-hush techniques that only a few insiders know.
    In the spirit of openness, the material is presented in an open manner. There is no
    attempt to summarize everything in a few easy steps and then give it a quick to
    remember acronym, like QSSB, Quick Secrets for Snowboarding Better. There’s
    too much of that junk out there already for just about every sport. Boarding
    cannot be reduced in this way. It has too many components, as do the athletic
    body and mind, to emphasize some things at the expense of other essentials.
    Moreover, what might work for one boarder could be troublesome and even
    destructive for another. Individualization is the cornerstone of high level
    coaching, but that takes time, patience and a willingness to suspend immediate
    gratification, something many parents, in particular, do not have.
    If you really want to learn, you’ll have to take the time to read, re-read, take
    notes, plan practices (even if you are self-teaching yourself), and keep a simple
    logbook, with notes and drawings, of your training and progress.
    Above all, this book has the Olympic ideal in mind:
    The goal of Olympism is to place everywhere sport at the service of the
    harmonious development of man, with a view to encouraging the
    establishment of a peaceful society concerned with the preservation of
    human dignity.
