Snowboarding Tips : Snowboard Straight-Lining


So, once you’ve got your front foot strapped
in you’re ready to get to the chairlift. How you get there is we call it straight lining.
But, first you need to be able to push yourself over to the chair and have people around you
to where you’re not going to fall and go crazy and your snowboard is going all over the place.
You need to just be able to be calm and know that you’re on a flat ground and you’re just
pushing yourself slow. So, we’re going to have your foot behind you in most cases, it’s
always behind you. You’re like skating. You’re just going to push and stand and push and
stand. You’ll go slow and you’ll get on the chairlift and you’ll just get off in the same
way. You’ll just stand on your snowboard and ride away. But, getting there just push and
push.

  1. OMG! Thank God for these videos!
    I couldn't get it – I was always getting mixed up in my feet and falling over when I tried this incredibly tricky manuver!!! With this detailed explanation I will surely get it! Just push and stand, push and stand… Awesome!!!

    Stupid bitch.

  2. i thourght straight lining was wen you point to the bottom of the mountain and go hell for leather all the way regardless of any women or children in front of you!!!

  3. same here, my foot behind the board feels waaaay too weird.

    and i've NEVER heard it called straight-lining. always called skating.

  4. i thought straight-lining was what all of the no talent boarders at my hill did. Just bobm the freakin hill, make a turn once in a while I say.

  5. preference buddy, i skate with my foot forward 80% of the time (and yes i think its easier).
    but true, this video is a waste of server space.

  6. i started to "jump" after my first 30 minutes of riding, now i started jumping with actual CONTROL after a whole season of riding.

  7. straight-lining point your your board down hill and dont turn these vids are great just to listen to their chat and then to read the comments and to lsten this chicks dulcit tones ahh ahh keep on posting

  8. omg!! i know what your saying!! i was at snow valley, in barrie, ontario, and i fell all the time!! when i got on the chairlift, it hit me in the knees. When i got off, i lost my footing, fell off, and slid down the hill

  9. Ever since all these raging idiots joined, it's nothing but a giant conflict between the idiots, cursing, and insulting each other. It truly has gone south.

  10. haha try getting off with a fractured shoulder 😀 then falling on the ground and not being able to get back up while people are still getting off of the chair lift with a french lift operator just shouting at you to get up when you physicaly cant 😀

  11. Um. As a new person with no clue of proper form…. you can't control anything with your foot behind. Like staph said, you don't see skateboarders pushing from behind.

  12. @alexisapirate
    Yeah I always do it with foot behind the board.
    Doing it in front of the board makes me slip away with the board somehow. Doesn't make you fall but it's slower in my opinion.

  13. I tried pushing with my foot behind me, but I would always trip. I am only comfortable pushing with my foot in front of the board.

  14. As long as u dont have some idiot next to u try to grab u to keep from falling and making you fall too, U will be alright.

    Just go straight until you stop. Its usually the safest and easiest way to get off the lift.

  15. is it only me who puts my foot before board when pushing ? I think that having foot behind and push is much harder.

  16. i always ride the ski lift by my self to avoid a crash but if i ride with more then one person i take my board of and run offf it

  17. @Xxsideshow22xX lol when getting off the lift with friends try sitting at the far right side at all times so your 1st to ride off it.

  18. @MrArgsnart clean the board where your going to slap the stomp pad with rubbing alcohol at room temp. place the stomp pad in the area you want it and heat it up with a blow dryer for about 45 secs to 1 min. let it sit over night with something heavy on it. You should be good the next day. I had the same issue before.

  19. @danamezjohn i do but to keep my foot from coming off the stomp pad i sit on the right and go down the little hill and turn left to stop but i cant turn left if i ride with other people last time i did this guys ski hit my board and he fell and hes skis came off

  20. @EggOllie nah the chair lift's are easy. just make sure if your not using a stomp pad that you have good pressure against your back foot and binding, and use your front foot to help lean on edge to turn. i can go 200+ yards with my back foot loose carving making it to the next lift most the time's with out a fall , just take's pratice and confidence.
