  1. For me the most frustrating thing about snowboarding is conquering the fear of crashing. I know the reward is often greater than the risk but I still don’t want to get hurt.

    The most frustrating thing is the fear of falling in public view because it’s embarrassing and you can’t help but think they’re laughing at you for being a noob even though you would probably never ever see that person ever again.

  3. NWBoarder says:

    I suppose the most frustrating thing to me is not being able to get out there as much as I would like to. It always feels like just when I’m getting into a good groove, it’s either the end of the season suddenly, or I have a large gap between times when I get to ride, thus losing my groove a little bit.

  4. i would say that the most frustrating thing is the lenght of progression when you’re not fully living on the slopes…even if you try to get as much as you can, when you’re not next to a ski resort, it’s really a pain. gosh it’s long to get some correct and descent freestyle skills… but never let it down… every trys leads you clother to the reward…

  5. Perharps the cost of ski holidays…

  6. Jaap Scholten says:

    Most frustrating – living in South Africa (no slopes here) means that you have to plan your ski trip three months in advance… and there’s no good guarantee that you’ll have powder! We try to stay in the same time-zone, so hang out in Europe. Cost to go to USA is on the very high side.
    When we’re actually there, on the slopes, one has to divide your (limited) time into “going in an instructor-lead group” and “thrashing it out with my mates. You want to have fun, but you need to get training…

  7. The most frustrating thing for me about learning to snowboard (and not to copy cat) is the lack of a real season puts progression at a slower pace. A good winter on the east coast where I live we might get 2 1/2 months of man made snow while west coasters in certain areas have 9 months. Nearly 4x as much riding time in one season. I’d move somewhere with a longer season if I could but I have too many things keeping me where I’m at right now.

  8. Brad Hansen says:

    I find learning a new rotation, flip, or grab to a trick you already mastered is harder than learning a new trick in general because you are so use to the first format of the trick, when you go to switch it up, you just get all messed up on the old and new format of the trick now.

  9. Hardest thing to learn when starting……….there is no training for it, can be scary, can be painful……sometimes hillarious;
    Well its got to be ‘scooting’ on one leg off a chair lift, or anywhere else for that matter. I could ride switch before I could do this with any great skill.

    Its a ‘must learn’ skill yet no-one teaches you how to do it and I’ve seen more injuries from this than in the park!
