Top 10 Tips For The Park

Dru Williams, Flow Snowboarding, Flow, Brighton, Snowboarding

The parks at all the local ski resorts are getting dialed in and every snowboarder on the hill is working on their progression. Here at Flow Snowboarding, we want you to be on point when it comes to your park etiquette in order to keep you safe and with the Flow when you drop into the park line. We all want to be able to show our friends, ski bunnies and significant others what we can do on a snowboard. Just because you can ride through the park, does not mean you RIDE through the park without knowing what you are doing. Here are a few tips to keep you park savvy at the resorts.

10. Know your ability.
Be honest with yourself. Only you will know if you are ready to ride the park. Most hills offer progression or kiddy parks to get you started for a reason. Just because you are a big boy (or big girl) doesn’t mean riding the big park will come easy to you.

9. Watch other rider’s approaches to features in the park.
Watching other riders speed as they approach jumps and jibs will give you a great pace to ride through the park. Following someone more familiar with the park will help you Find Your Flow, so to speak.

8. Respect the lineup, follow the Flow (Pun Intended).
As you line up for the features, notice if the riders ahead of you are lining up. Cutting this lineup for a feature is similar to snaking a wave on a locals only surf break. This typically can lead to an altercation, especially in a crowded park.

7. Do not hop on a feature until the person ahead of you has landed his trick.
We are all eager to get our runs in, but patience is a virtue. Plus there is no telling whether or not the person ahead of you will stomp or wreck on the feature. Better safe than sorry. Delaying a few seconds could help you from unnecessary collisions.

6. Do not drop into a jump line without keeping an eye on the rider jumping in front of you.
This is similar to the last tip but should also be noted. Make sure the rider or skier ahead of you is continuing down the jump line. If you do not see them reappear from the transition to the next jump, err on the side of caution when approaching the jump you saw them on last.

5. Speed check jumps ahead of time.
Hitting any jump blind for the first time without a lead to follow is begging for trouble. The best way to avoid this is to speed check a jump before hitting it. This will allow you to gauge the appropriate speed and pop needed to clear the knuckle.

4. Never sit on a landing.
This goes without saying and most of you get it. But you would be surprised how many times people ignore this rule. Clear the landing ASAP if you wreck, you are sitting in a landing zone.

3. Look out for each other.
Like in a pit at a concert or in a crew at the local skate park, make sure your fellow snowboarders are taken care of. If you happen to notice someone going down in the park, be the good Samaritan and make sure they are OK. Block a jump or make hand signals to let other riders know if the rider is safe and clear if there is a blind spot.

2. Start small and work your way up to the larger features.
If you are uncomfortable riding a bigger park or larger features, continue to work on your progression in the smaller parks until you get comfortable. Yes, we all want to say we rode the larger parks… but we all want to walk away from a day of snowboarding healthy,

1. Listen to music in one ear only
If you listen to music when you ride, as a good rule, keep one earbud in your downhill ear only. Having the ability to hear other riders and skiers coming up behind you, or if someone is trying to get your attention is very important in the park.

Can you think of any other tips for snowboarders in the park? Sound out! We at Flow Snowboarding want to hear from you. Please reach out to us via Social Media, tag us and use the hashtags #FlowSnowboarding #FindYourFlow

TransWorld Snowboarding Flow Darwin Snowboard Review


Flow Darwin – 2015 Powder Board Review | TransWorld SNOWboarding   

Darwin ABT: Never deep or steep enough and it carves like a knife.

This quiver filler was designed in collaboration between Dale Rehberg and Mike Basich is not just a powder hungry bandit, it actually works incredibly well on hard pack as well. The directional shape with its swallowtail and 2 piece ABT was designed around the camber and side-cut to give us “The sickest snowboard ever made”. Lose yourself in the tranquility of the wood veneer top-sheet, zenned out graphics and bamboo sidewalls or take it for a spin to see for yourself. An inspirational board from tip to tail is what we set out to build, and now we have it.

Prodaptive Develops The Twinrider For Paraplegic Snowboarding

Early Prodaptive Twinrider models utilized Flow Snowboarding’s binding straps.

Prodaptive, which specializes in tools for adaptive extreme sports recently developed their Twinrider, for paraplegics. It is the world’s first sit-down snowboard rig that allows independent riding, a true board sports sideways stance and full control over snowboard performance in both carving and skidding turns on the hill. Prodaptive’s mission is to facilitate people in exploring and expanding their boundaries in snow sports. Prodaptive started developing adaptive snow sports gear two years ago. They work alongside universities, athletes, coaches and sports organizations in order to develop their technologies. Prodaptive also provides lessons and coaching in adaptive snowboarding.

The Twinrider is a sit down snowboard, beginner model and is easily tweakable to fit and balance many users. It is meant for the adaptive snowboard progression, from the very basics, to riding green and mellow blue runs. The handlebars are well suited for dual riding with an instructor. Early models utilized Flow Snowboarding bindings strap technology. See the video below for how the edge-to-edge weight transfer system works (video featuring an older prototype):

Prodaptive is a startup company, working very hard to bring Twinrider and this innovation to the market. Prodaptive founders love to ride, and are super stoked to have created this technology that allows even more people to join the sport of snowboarding.

“Our DNA is not just creation for- but very much creation by the people,” Prodaptive states on their website. “Twinrider was developed by a team of both able-bodied and people with a disability, sit-snowboarders and sit-skiers, instructors, adaptive coaches and engineering students.”

“We’re not a charity nor are we looking to be, we’re just looking to sell Twinrider rigs and spread the knowledge and skills through clinics and demos while making a sustainable living out of that. Additional profits will off course go to further R&D towards advanced/expert rigs for ParaSBX racing, freeriding and park.”

“Please support our efforts and spread the word. If you know of any adaptive program, snow school, or individual that would be interested in a free demo, a full day lesson/instructor training (at a small cost) or buying the Twinrider rig let them know about us!”


Have you or anyone you know been involved with disabled mountain sports on your local mountains? Many resorts run various programs in order to help keep snow sports accessible to everyone.
