Hi there snowboarders! I’m Lorraine, the founder of SnowboardHow.
I’m a certified snowboarding instructor (by the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors), and I was born and raised in Hong Kong. There isn’t any snow at all there, so my first experience with snowboarding occurred at an indoor resort in my hometown.
How I Got Started Snowboarding?
One run had me hooked, and it has turned into a lifelong passion ever since then. My instructor on that first day was an ex-professional snow sports athlete with a ton of experience. He really helped me learn the snowboarding basics and has since become a lifelong friend.
I’ve been an avid snowboarder for decades since getting my first turns years ago in Hong Kong, and I’ve been lucky enough to ride all over the world in my adult life. All of my travels have helped me meet all different types of snowboarders.
Whenever I arrive in the mountains, I always seem to encounter loads of people with different problems relating to the sport. This might be the wrong gear, poor quality clothing, or a lack of safety sense.
I always try to help these people out so they can have a better time in the snow and make the most of their snowboarding experience. I know how important it is to have someone give you easy-to-follow tips when first learning how to ride.
And this is the main reason I started this blog – to share with you some of the tips and advice I have learned along the way. I’ve discovered so many things in my snowboarding journey that have helped me become better at the sport and enjoy it more thoroughly.
Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, it always helps to have some support and encouragement. It also helps to know what the best gear and equipment are to make an informed purchase that can increase your abilities on the mountain.
If you love snowboarding, you’ll feel right at home here. I’ve compiled an entire site holding a ton of valuable information you can take advantage of for your next snowboarding trip.
Another goal of mine is to provide useful guides and tips for all levels of snowboarders to make the planning of their next adventure as easy as possible. You can think of this website as a one-stop shop for all things relating to snowboarding.
