In this segment we're going to talk about body positioning while you're on your snowboard. Now there's really only one way that you can kind of do this right so it's going to be comfortable for you and you're not going to hurt yourself. So, you definitely want your knees shoulder width apart right even with your waist. And when you start going you want to keep your shoulders, waist and knees all parallel to each other, so all in a line. So, when we set up our board we want to make sure that we're wide enough apart, so it kind of lowers your center of gravity and keep your knees bent. So, you've got your knees bent, shoulders parallel with the board. Then, once we start riding we'll work on how to turn with our shoulders. This is the proper position like this. You definitely don't want to ride with your shoulders open to face where you're going, you want them squared up and you want to be looking over that front shoulder. So, just like this.
