Snowboarder's Start-Up: A Beginner's Guide to Snowboarding (Start-Up Sports series) (Paperback)

Here is the essential beginner’s guide to the fastest growing sport in the country according to the National Sporting Goods Association. The most important questions—how to stop, how to turn, and how to avoid the crash and burn syndrome—are answered because the author takes the reader along as he learns the sport himself. Basic gear, preparation, technique, and safety are also discussed.
Doug Werner is the author of nine books in the Start-Up Sports series. He lives in San Diego, California.
