Newton was right.
Inertia is the physical law that states: A body in motion, unaffected by
anything else, stays in constant motion. A body at rest, unaffected by anything
else, stays at rest.
For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction.
Gravity works, as applied to your riding: Whichever end of the snowboard
has the most weight over it goes down the hill first.
· As you get better you will learn to use the forces you create to make turns that don't rely solely upon gravity. As you get better you will learn to use the forces you create to carry yourself across the hill and into the next turn. The better your technique, the more you will be able to harness these forces and channel them through your board. This way your board can do the work for you.
