Buy this book!, 30 July 2008
This book can teach you how to snowboard without an instructor.
I self taught myself and my girlfriend to snowboard in only a few days with the aid of this book.
The great thing about this book are the diagrams which explain *where* to apply pressure to the board.
Previously, i had several lessons in which they taught twisting of the upper body and weighting of the leading foot to initiate turns.
The McNab method teaches you to initiate turns with just movements of the feet combined with raising and lowering the body.
You also end up looking alot more relaxed and controlled than people who use twisting to turn the board.
Bottom line, buy this book if you want to learn to snowboard without an instructor but with very good technique.
