5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, even better Video, March 18, 2009 By #F. Webb "country girl" (Northern New England) -

The only snowboard source I've found that actually helped me "get" the movements and balance needed to control the board. On the actual snow, I could somewhat reproduce what I had seen in the excellent, well focused video. I'm not a particularly athletic person or fast physical learner, but I feel this book helped me learn faster than I would have otherwise. Whistler snowboard books.

Snowboarding Skills: The Back-To-Basics Essentials for All Levels

John Gill of Melbourne, Australia had this to say about this book.

I first read this book after my first 5 days on a snowboard, and like many other reviews of snowboarding books have stated there is no substitute for being on the mountain and/or getting a few lessons. Having said that everyone has different ways of explaining concepts, and this book helped to reinforce some of the basics for me like keeping weight forward. After having read this book I had a few principles in the back of my head the next time I went boarding . another good feature is the authors use of other snowboarders to explain key concepts discussed in the book. Also the photos used where excellent better than the diagrams and pics in some other books I have seen. Thanks Whistler snowboard books.

In summary for a beginner snowboard there is sure to be something useful in this book.

Snowboarder's Start-Up: A Beginner's Guide to Snowboarding

This is a perfect beginners guide to the great sport of Snowboarding.

Mike Altarace of McLean VA had to say about it:

I usually don't bother reviewing, but this book is exceptional! I got it (and about 4 other Snowboarding books, which were too long and intimidating) when I started learning how to snowboard. This book gave me all the basic moves and techniques I needed to get on the slopes and make the most out of the two classes I took. By the third time on the snow I was turning, carving and feeling great about my progress.Whistler Snowboard Books.

Concise and easy to understand, highly recommended, Don't bother with any other book!

Caitlin Brown of Beaufort Couth Carolina says:

I also have the Start-Up surfer's book and it was great! I knew immediately hat I had to buy his other books. Snowboarding rocks too! He always gives cool descriptions, fun context, and help! Trust me, if you know you want to snowboard- check this out! Proudly presented by Whistler snowboard books.

Snowboarding: A Woman's Guide

This is what a reader said about this book:

When I went searching for a book on snowboarding, I didn't want just any book, written by any person. I went in search of a guide written by women for women. This has to be the best guide for not only beginning women boarders, but also for experienced boarders looking to refine their skills. The book takes a very basic approach to boarding, then gradually challenges you to get you just that one step closer to being better. Some of the topics include: Information about all Women camps, what you need to prepare yourself - clothing, equipment, etc., what to expect on the slopes, explains the different style of boarding and what might work best for you, how to take care and store your boots, boards and clothes...endless tips for just about everything you can think of. I would definitely recommend this book to any and every woman boarder I meet. Ride like a girl. Thanks Whistler snowboard books.
