We may be in lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Real Snowboarding have given us some tips on how to keep snowboarding through quarantine! Learn some new tricks in your back garden!
Here in France we have a very strict rule that we cannot go up the mountain during quarantine, can only go 1km away from home, and no higher than 100metres away from your house, for one hour a day, once a day. We have been very good, and stuck to the rules, but the daily walk around the block isn’t quite cutting it, so when Real Snowboarding released these videos, it got us hyped to practise some snowboarding… in our back garden!
Its only 240 days until the lifts start spinning for the winter 20/21 season, so time to get practising! Watch the following tutorials from our favourite snowboard school in the Portes du Soleil: Real Snowboarding
