Your First Time: Snowboarding Edition

For all you collegiettes out there with hopes of learning how to snowboard in the future, rest easy knowing that your first time is not what you expect it to be. Even if you are now an experienced snowboarder, take a trip down memory lane as I reveal the comically common thoughts of a beginner snowboarder.

The very first time you strap in those boots and prepare for take off: "Okay, I can do this... right? (commence attempt) "NOPE, NO, Definitely Not."

 

"How do they make it look so easy?"

There is always the classic first attempt at getting off the ski lift...

Let’s not forget about when you see a really attractive snowboarder guy working the lifts…

When you come to the realization that you’re a moving hazard and don't know how to stop...

When those 3-foot tall kids pass you on the slopes… “Did I really just get shown up by Mini-Me?”

As always, every amateur has a comment about the weather...

"This is a ridiculous sport."

Then, when you witness someone hit the ultimate face smash...

Amidst all of the frustration, you always still leave room for a positive thought…

Those common thoughts for your surrounding skiers...

"Did I really just pay a fortune to break my a**?"

That moment when you finally get a pretty good run in... "That felt so badas*."

At the end of the day there is always that one shameful, but truthful thought running through all of our minds… “Well at least I got a worthy Instagram picture!” 

So, here you have it, folks. I hope this article shreds some light on what your first time will really be like. Stay tuned for the next “Your First Time"-- Skiing Edition. I have a feeling pizza will be involved.
