Make sure to buy your boots and equipment basics. Rubber boots is the most important gear on snowboarding. It is important that you only have 1 pair of socks to go with your boots. Slide your foot smoothly and kick your heel a couple of times and then tighten it up. Hold your foot to prevent sliping. If you ride with your left foot it called the normal stance, and if you ride on right foot it called the goofy stance.
