You wont be expected to either know or demonstrate it to pass your basi 1 although you will probably be show it by the trainer and asked to have a go.
you should be competent at it for your Lev 2
Awesome cheers for that matey.

for your level 1 you really just need to be a competant rider and be willing to be trained during your week to become more basified, removing any rotation at the shoulders, nicely stacked on your board even weighted fore and aft
and be able to give clear demonstrations of central theme.

I've done a few sessions with www.snowboardcoach.co.uk and it's something i was doing with them. Braquage isn't a prerequisite but being able to show good technique, breaking down all the steps to show beginners etc is. I'm hoping this is helping improve.....the jury's still out on me though
arr ok.. are those the 1 day courses ? . Im having a look at some of those to do during the summer months
That's on the evening sessions but i'll be booking on a 2 days course with them next month. Can't speak highly enough of the level of instruction they give so i'd definately recommend getting ona course with them if you can

During my level 1 we did "pivot slips" and I've always thought they were called that, it was only on the level 2 that I heard the term braquage.
It's an exercise that focuses on peddling, spinning the board from edge to edge. Ideally/ultimately it should spin around the center of the board without any sideways movement - if there is then shows there's more going on than just peddling.
