From the Back Cover:

Let a snowboarding pro show you how to grab some air and get tricky on your board

The Art of Snowboarding shows you everything you need to know about mastering jumps and lumber on the mountain or riding the rails and pipes of terrain parks. Writing for boarders of all ages, professional coach Jim Smith breaks it down with his "progressive snowboarding" teaching method, taking you from the fundamentals to more challenging tricks and giving you innovative ways to push the limits of your skills and create your own style on the slopes.

A virtual slide show, this book is fully illustrated with stop-action photos that reveal each key stage of every trick, from the basic ollie to advanced kickers, rails, airs, and impressive half-pipe rides. With helpful tips on staying safe, choosing gear, and cross-training with skateboards in the off-season, you'll learn how to:

  • Master the fundamentals of setup, stance, and turning
  • Perfect your kicker skills for jumps small and large
  • Conquer the rails of terrain parks
  • Use felled trees and stumps to your advantage
  • And ride any size pipe like a professional airdog
