The compilation of the best snowboarding tricks of 2013 is out. This video has the best tricks of the 2013 season.
Snowboarding is a winter sport that involves descending a slope that is covered with snow while standing on a snowboard, a board attached to a rider’s feet, using a special boot set into a mounted binding. It is also a winter Olympics sport.
Street snowboarding is a combination of speed and tricks. The main feature of non-competitive snowboarding are the hill jumps, somersaults, jibbing, big air, the half pipes and tight curves. Some of the tricks in the video are so wicked they could not have been tried in any of the previous years. They will require some good time of practice too.
Snowboarding is progressing so fast that keeping up is a hard nut to crack. Every year, snowboarding one ups itself. Note that the popularity of the sport is rising too. There were 8.2 million snowboarders in the USA and Canada for the 2009-2010 seasons. This was a 10% increase over the previous season, accounting for more than 30% of all snow sports participants.
Cram these tricks and be ready to try them out in the 2014 snowboarding season before they become so old school that even thinking of them will make you the laughing stock of your clique.
Just as a safety note, remember that the injury rate for snowboarding is about four to six per thousand persons per day. Injuries are more likely amongst snowboarding beginners, especially those who do not take lessons with professional instructors but I bet you are past this class. A quarter of all injuries occur to first-time riders and half of all injuries occur to those with less than a year of experience in snowboarding. Experienced riders are less likely to suffer injury, but the injuries that do occur tend to be more severe.
