Question ID: 548282
I would like a list of the best resources on the web for snowboarding
- I am very interested in trick tips and training programs. I don't
want result style sites (Competitor competition rankings) - I am much
more interested in sites that will improve my snowboarding.

A list of training camps in North America and Europe and any other
interesting information would be great. Equipment suppliers of
snowboard gear would be great as well - if there are any related
affiliate programs - I would be very keen to learn of these as well.
