Snowboarding competitions

Snowboarding is a sport which people practice in winter in the ski stations, but there are places where people practice it although it´s hot, because of the special instalations, like in Dubai. The advantages of this sport are that you are in the snow, which is a thing you can´t see every day and it makes you feel free in the nature with amazing views. But there are some disadvantages, for example you can´t move your feet because they are fixed to the board and that can be dangerous, another disadvantage is that you are sometimes cold.

We like snowboarding because it is a sport which you can´t practice wherever and when you practice it, you feel that this sport is very special and unique.
