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 we’re 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 you’ve been scared is a very human thing. But it can be a double-edged sword. Don’t worry about it if you aren’t 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 doesn’t mean you have to be gung-ho about it all.
