The Ultimate FreerideBook - 1996
Mike Fabbro'sSnowboarding: A Guide to the Ultimate Freerideis a complete guide to this wild, and wildly popular, new sport. Written in an informal but authoritative style, it provides the bottom line on all the basic equipment, clothing, and other paraphernalia required, and contains lots of tips and hints for getting started. With the aid of black-and-white cartoon-style drawings by Oliver Roy, it takes you step by step through all the techniques, from the basic moves to the fancier tricks; from deciding whether you prefer to "ride goofy" to doing "back-side carves" to trying some "big airs." In addition, Fabbro explains the ISF judging system for competitive snowboarding, and tells you how to play safe, and how to keep your equipment in top condition.
