o freestyle progression. By shifting your weight over the tail of the board you can store energy in the board and spring into the air. This allows you to jump higher and further than just jumping off both feet.
FUN is a universal language!
For me, one of the highlights of Interski 2019 in Pamporovo, Bulgaria was visiting elementary schools to share snowboarding with a bunch of local kids.
We traveled to Bulgaria a few days early so that we could head into a few schools with Burton Riglet PE kits and teach the kiddos to snowboard in their gym. Instructors have long promoted the idea of “familiar terrain for new tasks, and new terrain with familiar tasks.” Burton Riglet PE ties in with this by allowing us to teach the new task (snowboarding) in familiar terrain (their school gymnasium).
Later in the week, those same kids visited us at Pamporovo where we then took their now familiar task of snowboarding into new terrain – the Burton Riglet park at the top of the mountain.
The kids had a blast, and I think the AASI Snowboard Team had just as much fun. It’s been said a million times, but FUN is a universal language!
