some days my shinbang is so bad I want to quit skiing... I've honestly considered selling all my stuff (which is a crap ton of money) and buying a board and trying it.
So the big question is, do snowboarders get shin and toe bang?
theabortionatorNah, sometimes heals from flat landings but even then not as bad as skiing. Much more comfty imo. Also easier to land tail first if needed to soften the landing. You have more control based on the way you're spread on 1 plank.
That said you will probably be sore as fuck when you learn. You use a lot of different muscles plus if you beat yourself up learning to turn. Start small and work your way up. Use areas of the trail that are almost flat to work on your turns. Once you get both turns use those spots to learn both turns switch. If you learn all 4 turns right away and go in between them all sometimes itll really help you in the long run.
