Are LTD snowboards good?

LTD snowboards are considered budget snowboards and they are ok to be honest but there are definitely a lot of better brands

ANSWER:

I would not suggest LTD to any of my friends even if they were just starting to get into snowboarding. Too many smokin' deals out there right now especially if you are in the States.

What is a triple cork in snowboarding?

It was hard to find, but according to an article I read on a double cork: a double cork is a flip that starts on one axis and then changes to another in the second flip. That would make a triple cork 3 flips on 3 different axes.

Why do snowboarders use wide boards to ride over soft powdery snow?

It is not just wider but also slightly longer than our regular boards we would use in regular, wet, or east coast conditions. There are a few reasons to upsize your board in powder but they stem from the same main reason, which is weight distribution. The wider and longer the board the more the riders weight is spread out. In powder upsizing your board helps you stay on the top layer of snow which increases speed and control. Careful though if you get a board to large for your body weight you will not be able to control it.

snowboarders use wide boards to ride over soft powdery snow for them to catch up their weight at the same time, they could balance better.

How do you do a backside double cork spin?

You must be very advanced to try and execute this move. I suggest not trying it all unless you can already execute a single cork 360. In case you don't know cork refers to a corkscrew and means bringing your head below the board during the spin. My first attempt at a single cork 360 I wrecked hard and had a concussion and a dislocated shoulder. AGAIN DO NOT ATTEMPT UNLESS VERY ADVANCED! This is a move done by professionals! First you need a jump big enough to complete a 540 or 720 easily as you need to do at least 1.5 spins to do a double cork. Backside refers to your back facing downhill during the first 180 rotation. You must leave the jump with a ollie off of your toe side edge and spin clockwise if you ride regular (counter clockwise for goofy riders). When leaving the jump you must spin using your shoulders, core, and legs to get a fast tight spin. Then while spinning bring your head under your board twice during the rotations. This is accomplished by knowing how to rotate once you are airborne. Grabbing the board helps because it keeps you in a tight spin and lets you easily maneuver underneath it for the cork, the grab also helps you keep stability on large jumps. Again please do not attempt and wear a helmet at all times while riding.

Where did snowboarding originate then spread to?

Mt Baker Ski Resort was where snowboarding originated. It then spread nation wide.

ANSWER:

Snowboarding has been around since the 1920s. Boys and men would tie plywood or wooden planks from barrels to their feet using clotheslines and horse reins in order to steer themselves down hills. 30 years later an eight grade student from New Jersey, Tom Sims, created what he called a "ski board" as a woodwork project. His invention was a rounded plank of pine with a nose kick in the front and carpet on top to supply the much needed traction. Commercially the snowboard didn't catch on until 1965. Sherman Poppen, a frustrated father trying to get his kids out of the house on a freezing winters day, invented the Snurfer (snow and surf together). A few years later, Snurfer was seen by most people as a kid's toy.

Meanwhile Dimitrije Milovich, inspired by sliding down snowy hills on meal trays, began producing boards for himself and friends. In 1972 he would begin to produce the first snowboards as we know them today and experimenting with iron edges. Winterstick, as he called his company, is still producing snowboards today- the classic swallowtail deep powder snowboard is especially popular.

How can you twist on snowboard?

when coming up to the tip of the jump, lean slightly either on your heel side or toe side, depending on which direction you want to spin. when in the air, twist your shoulders, followed by your hips, in the direction you wish to go. for me personally, it helps a lot to look at your board when you are spinning. if you find that your spinning is slow, really twist your legs and focus on the landing. when you land, compress you news and really focus you weight to the middle of the board, and ride on outta there!

How is friction important in snowboarding?

friction is very important during snowboarding in very many ways;

One is that if not for friction very few would survive in the lovely game

of snowboarding, why you may ask well it is all based on the definition of

friction, what is friction( this is the resistance of two or more surfaces to

an extent of making them heat up.)

It is through friction that one is able to stop,spin, jump & even turn during snowboarding or would it be possible to do this things without FRICTION. NO.

read more of this on Cameron McCormick's report

It is through Friction that we enjoy snowboarding a lot. This is the reason why we can still count our speed limit when we descend in a slope.

Are flow snowboard bindings to heavy?

As Flow bindings have progressed they have gotten much lighter. Back in the day, they were definitely on the heavier side. Now however, there are models that are just as light, if not lighter than traditional strapped bindings. It really depends on which model you're looking at. If you pick up the Flite 1's or Flite 2's which are the first models in the lines then they are going to be much heavier than some of the higher end models in the line.
