"The premier guide to modern riding, from one of the sport's best coaches."
--Tim Windell, two-time World Cup co-champion

In The Art of Snowboarding , USSA-certified club coach Jim Smith introduces you to the most popular tricks and stunts, including kickers (jumps) and other freestyle and half-pipe techniques, and stunts on rails and wood. He gives special emphasis to proper stance and turning techniques as the basis for more advanced moves. Time-lapsephotographs demonstrate every step of every trick and technique, and dozens of additional photos show you the form of some of the country's best riders.
