Snowboard Club UK (SCUK) FAQs (frequently-asked questions)
Category: Main -> Snowboard Terrain -> Kickers
To ride a kicker you should already have a fairly good grasp of snowboard fundamentals: turning, stopping, coping with speed and possibly riding switch being the level weíre after. Hitting kickers is a fairly dangerous pursuit, and people do get hurt on them. Of course, this adds to the thrill of snowboarding for some; the desire to overcome your fears and succeed when youíve been scared is a very human thing. But it can be a double-edged sword. Donít worry about it if you arenít progressing as fast as you like. Take your time, feel confident and let your brain work out what to do. Trust yourself a little, believe you can do it, and then go and try it. Commitment is a huge factor in mastering snowboard tricks, but that doesnít mean you have to be gung-ho about it all.
