Last time we looked at Snowboard Safety in general, but today we have a gander at how to take care in the snowboard park. Helmets are a must. Impact (butt) shorts are a plus!
まもろう！パークを たのしむ スノーボーダーの きほん！
Respect the rules of the park!
Literally: ‘Let’s protect! The rules for enjoying the snowboard park!’ 基本 means the ‘fundamentals’ or ‘basics’, but it can also be translated to something like ‘rules’ in this case, since we’re looking at things you can do to make the park a safer place. They aren’t hard and fast laws to obey, but the implication is that respecting them will keep everybody boarding happily.
Watch your blind spot
Interesting one this. As the kanji literally translate – the ‘death corner’!? This is your ‘blind spot’ or any areas not immediately visible. As the illustration shows, on a jump it would be the area immediately afterwards, so get someone to check it is clear before going.
