Slopestyle Snowboarding. Ever heard of it? Yeah probably not, I’m sure you’ve heard of snowboarding though right? Although average snowboarding is quite amusing itself, slopestyle takes it to a whole new level! Slopestyle is a snowboarding course with a wide variety of obstacles ranging from rails, terrains, and slopes of course. (“Breaking down the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Slopestyle Course.”)I would love to tell you all about slopestyle but I figured that would get a little too lengthy. So I have picked three of many thing to tell you about slopestyle. First I’ll tell you about Jamie Anderson, a famous Olympic Snowboarder. Then you’ll learn all about the history of the Slopestyle in the Olympic Games, and finally I’ll take you on a tour of
Was there ever a time where you were terribly embarrassed because of a minor event; this was me with rodeo. One day I was roping with my sisters and went to go throw my loop but missed the dummy. When I pulled my slack, I noticed I had somehow turned my loop into a figure 8 and had no idea how I did it or how to fix it. I panicked, and my sister had to help me. All I had to do was turn my loop the other way, but I did not realize this because I was too frustrated to figure this out. Many assume that rodeo is easy and for everyone, but in fact it is not. Rodeo allows me to use skills such as speed, strength, courage, and many more to help me later on in my life because Rodeo teaches me to not run from my fears, but to face them. All sections
This is the most inspiring documentary I have ever seen. Kevin Pearce, his family, and his friends are inspiration to us all. I randomly turned it on, on net flex, and was immediately interested, even I don’t know about snowboarding. It was interesting to learn about snowboarding and how dangerous it is.
Each year, more and more Americans are injured participating in winter sports. Snowboarding equipment and training programs have improved since 2000 making the sport safer than other winter sports. Snowboarding is safer than skiing because when a person falls on a snowboard their speed gets reduced drastically and it is easier to control themselves. When a person fall on skis, it is harder to stay in control. While snowboarding is safer than other winter sports, it is still crucial to follow these safety tips such as always having the right equipment and knowing the person’s limits. Some professional snowboarders that suffered serious injuries are Shaun White and Kevin Pearce. Modern snowboarding safety equipment limits injuries for professionals and amateurs alike while fostering a safer environment than skiing.
The sport that I came to the conclusion to use as my favorite sport would have to be Skate boarding. Skate boarding came out in 1958 and since that day people young and old get out there and shows their stuff. No matter how good or how bad you are. To start out I would like to bring out some of the great skate boarders of all time. Then I would like to discuss different type of skating terrain.
Japanese rule in Korea only lasted 35 years yet left an indelible legacy, and the country was relentlessly modernized with new roads, railroads, telegraph lines and new schools. This phenomenon can be called as industrialization that made Korea to develop. Furthermore, Japan raised the quality of education for Korean(THE JAPANESE). Therefore, Korean were being more educated than before thanks to Japan. However, these advantages were just a trick that Japan made. These situations might seem like Japan contributed to development of Korea, but they were actually destroying the country. In true, railroads were needed to move the raw materials that they plundered, and they could plunder more efficiently and strategically by communication, so they educated the people. Therefore, Koreans became worse off as time went on. Per capita rice consumption went down as more was exported to Japan, and all of the top positions were held by Japanese(ibid). In other words, “Koreans living in Japan were mercilessly massacred by the Japanese without reason”(Colonial). Furthermore, when Korea 's twenty-five million people were liberated from Japan, Korea was an exhausted land. Its natural resources and manpower had been ruthlessly exploited, and its energies had been sapped for Japan 's vain dream of dominating all of
Snowboarding is a winter activity that many people participate in all over the world. It has become such a huge sport that it is in the Olympics every four years. Snowboarding became very popular in 2000 and was also the fastest-growing sport in the United States with numbers reaching a total of just over 7.2 million people that participated in the new sport. However, people don’t just snowboard to go down hills, like skateboarding, snowboarding is considered a trick sport. Most of the participants like to grind off rails, jump off boxes and soar off jumps into the fresh powder waiting below. Most snowboarders have a bad reputation for always wanting to smoke weed and then take up the entire mountain and don’t care about anyone else, just

I’m on a mountain, I just overcame my first obstacle the chair lift. Which I thought would be harder than it was I miraculously didn’t fall or knock over the other skiers/snowboarders. I glanced back up at the gleaming mountain becoming easily distracted by the flawless stroke of every turn as the pros make their way down. I say quietly to myself “Isn’t this suppose to be a beginners hill?” They have gopros strapped to their helmets and are racing each other down. All I can think in that moment is how am I supposed to be able to do that. Those suave perfect turns the gentle touch the snowboard has with the fresh powder from that morning. They look at each other with excitement in their eyes and adventure in their hearts. I feel completely uncomfortable and awkward. Pushing off and hit the ground face first. The ice cold snow melts onto my face, I laugh at myself and hope to god the people around me didn’t see that. No one was paying attention to me they all had this type of confidence and excitement to learn and grow. I stood back up and headed down the hill with all force, not knowing how to turn I abruptly put my snowboard on healedge and slammed to a stop. Little did I know I was already halfway down the hill.
Lacrosse has always been a fascinating sport but it never has been one of the top sports like baseball, football, or basketball. I chose this topic because there is so many interesting facts about the sport, for example, why was this sport created and how has it changed the lives of many people. For example, lacrosse was created by the Native North Americans back in the 1630’s. Some topics that will be talked about in this essay are how do you play the game, how the game has changed overtime, and some general history about the game.
Understanding the general thumb rule of choosing the best trucks for your longboard can simply ease the entire process. For example, a truck with wide hanger provides you stability and better control over your ride. Again a narrow and tight truck would give you maneuverability and ease to take sharp turns. The same goes with the baseplate angle of the trucks. Higher the angle easier to make the tight turns while lower the angle better would be the stability and control. There are different ways to evaluate the truck,
I wanted a longboard really bad. As bad as I wanted it I didn 't want to earn it or work for it. But for my birthday I got 100 dollars cash. So I was saving it for a longboard. As the time went on I ended up spending that money. By the time my parent would allow me to by my own longboard I only had about 30 to 40 dollars left. I think that we all know is that longboards are expensive and the one I wanted was up to 230 dollars. Do you want to know the reason why it was that expensive.
Snowboarding has not changed greatly, but there are some changes worth mentioning. For example, most of the tricks that riders pull off today weren’t even considerably ridable back then. Triple corks are getting accomplished all day, and halfpipes are even double the size. The famous riders come and go, but there are still a handful from back then that still do what they love. The tricks are bigger, and the terrain is crazier, but the soul is the same. Don’t worry though, snowboarding isn’t going to become unknown ever, it’s always going to bring fun in the
