Slide, fall, struggle, repeat: My first snowboarding lesson

By the end of my first snowboarding lesson, I started to get a feel for turning, but my only way to stop was to fall. (I stopped a lot.)

During the 90-minute lesson, I only managed to stay upright for a few seconds at a time. It was fun to try. I found it a lot harder than skiing, but I have been told by many people that it usually takes a few tries to get the hang of it.

I have been sore for days and days, but at least I got to check another thing off my list. Only 56 more things to go!

#18: 101 things in 1001 days. Go snowboarding.

  5. I think you are very brave! I’ve never tried snowboarding, but I’m pretty sure my only way to stop would be to fall too!
