  1. Most frustrating thing for me is the endless fall down – get back up again cycle! I don’t mind falling over during the learning process, but when you alternate between the two states for an entire day…. that’s when frustration sets in!

    What do you find the most frustrating about learning new snowboard tricks/techniques?

    The frustration when you feel like you *should* be able to do X but still can’t nail it.

  3. Peter Erdogyaraki says:

    same here,
    i know what to do, and how to do to master the trick, but in the critical moment it fails mostly :S on the other side, i can’t spend enough time to practice (all the rideable mountains is pretty far away), and that’s frustrating too.

  4. The most frustating thing is waste of energy lost on trying to get back up after falling because it certainly burns the energy out of you.

  5. The most frustrating thing by far is realing how easy it was once you stomp it. Getting the technique is the hardest part and not knowing what you are doing wrong untill you try something different is frustrating but sooooo rewarding once you nail it. Basically try anything untill you get something and watch other riders to get ideas.

  6. The most frustrating thing while learning a new trick/technique is when you understand every aspect of the trick/technique in theory, but it does not seem to translate into practice.
    I understand the technique on video and on paper, and in my mind it seems to work, but when I execute the trick my body tends to do the opposite or stall midway.

    “Knowing” a technique is not always a guarantee to successfully land it. You also need to feel it. And for me not finding the link between “knowing” and “feeling” is very frustrating sometimes.

    P.S.: I can’t press the like button because platform apps is disabled for security reasons, so I just “liked” the post directly on Facebook.

  7. the most frustrating thing is , when you keep trying and keep falling but can’t figure out where the wrong thing is, where this little grain of sand if ruining all your effort to achieve your goal… even more frustrating is to find the strength to transform this frustration in motivation in order to GET this thing done one time, two times, three times, and finaly master it…

  8. I think the most frustrating thing is when you try to learn a new trick, then you realise that the problem is an incorrect basic movement and you try to get rid of it but it cemented in your muscle memory over the years. That’s really frustrating.

  9. For me it’s that stupid instinct that makes you repeat wrong movements again and again. You know exactly how the movement should look like, have a clear slo-mo picture in your head – but your body seems to ignore it completely, doing some crap instead :)

  10. What I hate most is wiping out while trying the new trick! This wipe out definitely builds to that frustration factor that you posted about earlier today!

  11. For me it’s when you repeat bad habits or moves over and over and over. You know and understand how it should be done but the rest of you just doesnt agree with that

  12. Davy Rosiak says:

    The MOST frustrating about learning new tricks is :
    THERE AREN’T ENOUGH F*$#ING HOURS OF LIGHT IN A DAY!!!

  13. Joe White says:

    When after hours and hours of failing a trick you finally stomp it. Then on your next attempts you slam harder than you did to start with. The frustrating thing is when your lying down with your face in the snow and you know you can do the trick

  14. The frustrating part is when I already failed so many times, sometimes even hurt myself a bit, have loads of snow in my underwear, but to top it all, right before I thought I finally got it because I succeeded, the next time I try it again, I fail again because I forgot the exact movement I just did. Massive frustration.

  16. I always have issues riding off the lift without falling

    • Dear Brad,

      I’m not aware of your experience level but I do know one thing that can help you master lift exits.
      You can put a stomp pad close to your rear binding. This will give the traction you need to stand on the board with your rear foot. Make sure you get one that is made of rubberized material, these have a good grip even when there is snow and ice on it. Not the foam type, they tend to crumble apart over time.
      Make sure it’s big enough to place your foot on (different types available) .
      Go to a slope with a small inclination, and try to go down the slope with your rear foot on the stomp pad to train. After a while it will become second nature.
      Another advantage of a stomp pad is that you can remove some excess snow on your sole before strapping in.
      Don’t listen to people who tell you that a stomp pad is “not done” or for newbies, because if it helps you and makes you a better rider, then it’s all you need.
      After a while you will get used to the feeling of going one footed. And in time, when you will buy a new board, maybe you will not need a stomp pad anymore because your front leg will be strong enough to hold an edge, an your balance will be good enough to stand on the slippery topsheet with your rear foot.

      Bye and have fun!

  17. The inconsistency in locking down tricks. When you land them it feels amazing, but the next attempt you fall hard. Essentially, the amount of time it takes for muscle memory to set in.
