5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book from an Awesome Rider, 18 Feb 2007
This review is from: Go Snowboard (Paperback)
Neil's book is the first snowboard title I've encountered that covers the modern foot-steering technique. That alone would make it stand out from the crowd, but it goes far beyond that. The book covers the "McNab Four Point Pressure Control System", a new evolution in snowboard technique that is suitable for the whole spectrum of riders - from complete beginners to the advanced and experienced.

I had the pleasure of learning the system on one of the McNab Technical Performance Clinics last year and it is an utter joy to use - very powerful, very natural and suitable for all kinds of terrain and conditions.

As a qualified instructor, I can highly recommend this book to both novices looking for some up-to-date background reading, as well as more established snowboarders looking to take their riding to the next level. The text is clear and readable, the photos and diagrams support the information presented, and the book is broken down into small sections which are great for flicking through. Adding a DVD was a stroke of genius - although short, seeing the exercises in action really helps to get the ideas across. Snowboarding is not a static activity!

If you want to discover how to ride snowboards using a modern, efficient and solid technique do yourself a favour and buy this book.
