After you feel you are comfortable and balanced on the board, the next step for you to take is to attempt a skating move. This move is one of the most used by the snowboarders.

You also need to attach both feet as you will need your lower limbs to push your body and movement off the ground covered with snow. With skating, you will have to use your leg muscles to generate the momentum that will keep you going. When you move or kind of rock from side to side, this is called switching edges and it is regularly done by experts of the sport.

It is a very important move when you are moving down the hill and you need to turn back and do a jump. For majority of the boarders, it is quite comfortable to do a single stance or try another to see the one that is better. Apart from these moves that have been mentioned, there are some other moves to be learnt and know as well.
