Snowboarding - It Looks So Easy on Television
February 24, 2014
With the Olympics in full swing, I am sure many kids as well as adults have been inspired to want to go out and try these sports. Many don't realize that these athletics have dedicated their lives for years to their sport. They have put in countless hours for many years to make their sport appear easy.
If you would like to try some of these sports, you need to do your research first. Start with going and getting a physical. Your body might not be up to the task. There are many books and videos in our system to help you get started safely in the sport you are inspired to try. The one sport I will spotlight is snowboarding. There are over 100 items in our MCPL catalog on this subject. Just simply type "snowboarding" in the search column, change search field to subject, and you get the results.
Here's a few of those results:
- Beginning Snowboarding by Julie Jensen
- No Fall Boarding: 7 Easy Steps to Safe and Fun Snowboarding by Danny Martin
- Snowboarder's Start-up: A Beginners Guide to Snowboarding by Doug Werne
- Snowboarding by Jennifer Fandel
Feel free to choose any sport you have seen that has inspired you and get more information. We even have a few books on curling! Be safe and have fun. Also, make sure you have your doctor’s phone number handy!
