Snowboarding is an activity that involves using a singular board to maneuver down a snow-covered mountain. The rider's feet are locked into the snowboard with straps called "bindings." Inspired by surfing, skateboarding, and skiing, the movements replicate a combination of these sports. A rider leans to either side of the snowboard in order to turn, adjust speed, or come to a stop. Snowboarding can either be a recreational or competition-based activity. There are many different types of snowboarding including freeriding, slopestyle, halfpipe, and alpine. As one improves their snowboarding ability they can transition into steeper mountains, different types of snow, jumps, or trying different tricks.

Practice really does make perfect in this sport. It is important to spend as much time on the mountain as possible to better improve your snowboarding ability. Having the right equipment can make or break your experience, so make sure you have the correct size snowboard, boots, pants, jacket, and helmet.

A majority of rules or limits may come from oneself. In competitions there are other specific rules or regulations that may be enforced but it depends on what type of competition is occurring.
