What Accessories Do I Need With A Snowboard?
Some of the essential accessories are snowboarding boots, snowboard socks, bindings, a helmet, snowboard gloves, thermal underlayers, snowboard goggles, a snowboard bag and backpack and safety gear.
What Should A Beginner Snowboarder Wear?
Aside from the basic gear, beginners should wear a helmet, goggles, wrist guards and impact shorts. Falls are inevitable and these will protect you from injuries (knee/elbow pads may also be worn.)
What Do Cool Snowboarders Say?
And just in case you want to fit in with your snowboarding friends, I’ve answered this popular question.
Here are some of the most popular terms that you’ll hear on the slopes:
- Après– literally anything that happens after a day of snowboarding (whether it be drinking, games or a nap!)
- Shredding– when you’re riding hard and going fast.
- Park rat– a snowboarder who almost exclusively rides parks.
- Stomp– when you land a trick flawlessly.
- Sketchy– when you land a trick, but it isn’t flawless.
- Yard sale– a particularly hard fall where at least one piece of gear flies off and ends up lost on the mountain.
- Send it– when you want your friend to do a trick or maneuver that might be a bit risky.
- Face shot– when your best friend stops too close and sprays snow in your face (some best friends you have.)
- Catch an edge– a snowboarder’s worst nightmare. It’s when your board catches an edge and you slam to the ground with extremely painful (and embarrassing) force.
- Green circle– aka the bunny slopes.
- Pow– slang term for beautiful fresh powder.
- Betty– a female snowboarder.
- Bullet Proof– when the slopes are icy or covered with hard-packed snow.
- Drifter– a beginner who drifts from one side of the slope to the other (watch out for drifters.)
- Hot dog– an extremely talented female snowboarder
- Phat– very cool man.
- Bunk– bad news (like your favourite run being closed.)
