Last weekend I went to Phoenix Park (in Gangwon, Korea) with my colleagues. There I played snow boarding, it's the first time and IT'S VERY EXCITING!
We played from about 5:30 PM to 11:30 PM and my whole body is hurt. IMO, I don't have any problems to keep the balance. But, for me, the hardest thing is how to control the knees. My knees seems are very rigid so I cannot control them as I want.
I tried to flow my colleagues' basic instruction to control the board to move forward then stop, then forward... but then I gave up. I couldn't do it. But later I tried the more advanced instruction, this time I could do it better. At that moment, the hardest thing for me is how to stop the board and can you guess how? Most of times I used my buttock to stop, ha ha.
The boarding road is >950m long and I board 6 or 7 times. Time after time, I did it better and I satisfied myself. Hope that I will have more opportunities to play boarding :-)
