SKATING ON A SNOWBOARD
When moving over level terrain, the rider must skate very much like a skier uses poles to push along.
The image on the left shows a rider on a freestyle board in the skating position. Most of the weight is
on the front foot while the rear foot is detached from the binding
and used to propell the body forward. The image on the right shows a rider
on a carving board in the skating position.
It is usually easier to skate on a carving board since the body is facing
nearly in the direction of travel.
The rider show below has purchased an adapter that moves from a riding position to a front position
which is easier to skate with in long lift lines. The adapter then locks back into the riding position when at the top of the hill.
