Hey Coach,

How can I improve my 270 to boardslide on my snowboard?
truelife

Hey truelife,

Pour yourself a bowl of courage and go all out, dude. Mastering a boardslide on a snowboard is all about being confident and getting lots of practice. If you ride with any kind of self-doubt or hestitation, you'll end up banging your butt on the rail and getting a face full of snow. If you're having a lot of trouble getting the hang of the boardslide, practice a 360 off a small jump and visualize in your head when you would hit the rail. This will help you get the routine and timing down. Once you've tried that a few times, grab your snowboard and head to the rail. Keep your head up, wear a helmet and go for it.

Hey Coach,

I really like to inline skate and I want to know what are some cheaper versions of really good skates that still look good. Can you also give me some tips on how to stop without using a brake?

Hey i_lurv_sk8er_guys,

You can get cheaper versions of good inline skates, but I wouldn't recommend it. If you really like inline skating, it's better to pay a few extra bucks for a good pair. Cheaper skates will break more easily and aren't as safe. (You won't be too happy that you saved a few extra bucks, when the brakes on your skates fail and you end up with major road rash.) The only way I know of to stop without using a brake is to crash into something or roll to the ground. The brake on your inline skates is there for a reason, so I suggest using it.

Do you have a question on sports, skateboards, skateboarding, fitness, P.E. class, rules to sports or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
