Just as the title suggests, No-Fall Snowboarding claims to teach you snowboarding without falling, and in just three days! Martin uses his own unique techniques, and even though I cannot guarantee you that you won’t fall after reading this book, I do appreciate the way he approaches the subject matter. This book incorporates a wealth of drills and exercises on improving technique, and also helps you find the right board and riding gear in general. The part I really, really connected with was Danny Martin’s adventures into Zen and the metaphysics. I think it is of utmost importance that we go a step beyond the ordinary, as much in life as in the sports we play. I have seen major improvement with my students when we used visualization, grounding, and meditation (among lots of other “New Age” approaches). My nickname is Mr. Zen in our school, so you know I am really feeling Martin’s approach, and I commend him for stepping outside the boundaries. And he does so with humor. If you have an open mind you will greatly benefit from this read and might be able to ride outside the mainstream crowd.
