  • Ross is a gold medal skiboarder.

  • And Ross, you claim you can teach me

  • to master the board today.

  • Not a problem, Conan, we're gonna do it.

  • I don't like speed. (audience laughing)

  • And I don't like to fall.

  • I'm not a big fan of snow

  • or cold weather. (audience laughing)

  • Snowboarding's your sport, Conan.

  • (audience laughing)

  • You think so? Absolutely.

  • You're very positive, I like that.

  • I have a custom board.

  • Oh yeah, right,

  • yeah. You,

  • yeah. Good one.

  • And then look at this guy down here.

  • That's me. Aww!

  • I put the little teeth in, (audience clapping)

  • and I'm wearing a scarf 'cause it's cold.

  • And I don't know why I'm wearing a nightcap.

  • (audience laughing) I just, I'm kinda mad

  • at the guy who did this 'cause I wanted it

  • to be more ski wear, and it looks like

  • I'm going to sleep. (audience laughing)

  • [Ross] I like your ears.

  • What's, like that, that bunny ears on the top, what that?

  • Look at that, when I go way up

  • into the air. (audience laughing)

  • (audience applauding) (audience cheering)

  • "You suck," right in the guy's face.

  • Then I grab the clip and I show him my ass pad,

  • and then right down. (audience laughing)

  • When you're learning to initiate a turn,

  • you kind of want to kind of like slide your back foot around

  • like this, right? Right.

  • That creates- So the back foot

  • is the rudder sort of. Kind of like a rudder.

  • Yes. So it kinda

  • tilts your board that way. (audience laughing)

  • You don't want to knock the boards down the hill.

  • But I just knocked your board downhill.

  • You want to keep your knees flexible.

  • Flexible. You don't want to be stiff.

  • You want to be able to absorb everything.

  • Right.

  • All right. You gotta be kinda loose.

  • Loose. Right, okay.

  • Okay, hands in front.

  • All right. Hands in front,

  • you know you kinda- And it's kind of

  • a Zen thing, right, like- Yeah, right, surfing.

  • It's very much I am one with what's happening around me

  • and anything that happens is okay.

  • Whatever happens is cool,

  • 'cause that's- Exactly.

  • Just the way it is, dude, that's just the way it is.

  • Right. (audience laughing)

  • (Conan grunting) (boot clicking)

  • Son of a bitch! (boot thudding)

  • (audience laughing) (Ross chuckling)

  • (Conan exhaling heavily)

  • I don't know what happened there,

  • I totally lost my cool. (audience chuckling)

  • Gonna strap on. I think my straps

  • are in the way, there, okay.

  • Now I'm in.

  • I'm not gonna get on my knees in front of you, Conan.

  • [Conan] Whatever, you've heard the rumor.

  • This one first, (audience laughing)

  • goes underneath there.

  • I am strapped in, clocked up, and dialed out.

  • Let's chop.

  • Ah, (grunting) dah!

  • Ow! (audience laughing)

  • (audience laughing)

  • Stand up slow, nice and easy.

  • Yeah, oh yeah! Get a feel.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • Yeah. (board slams)

  • What we're gonna do is we're gonna go in that direction

  • and then I'm gonna get you to do the rudder thing

  • with that foot. (Conan exhales)

  • And turn around.

  • Take it kind of behind you

  • and we're gonna make a turn this way.

  • Okay. All right?

  • That's definitely not gonna happen.

  • (audience laughing) (board sliding)

  • There we go, look at that!

  • [Ross] You're doing good, keep, yeah,

  • you're doing good. There's on the heel.

  • Ah! (grunts) (body slams)

  • (audience laughing)

  • Now that's my stop.

  • That's how I stop.

  • That's just my technique.

  • I don't even want to call it falling, I want to call that

  • my dismount. (audience laughing)

  • So right here, the next section where you're gonna try it

  • from going to the heels to turn onto your toes.

  • I'm going to make an example demonstration.

  • (board sliding)

  • Heel side, heels back, rudder!

  • (audience laughing)

  • Yeah, there's no way. (audience laughing)

  • (branch snapping) Ah! (grunts)

  • Yeah, ah! (grunts)

  • I think there's a bear in here.

  • (audience laughing) Yeah, come back

  • if you can.

  • Ah! (grunts) (audience laughing)

  • Okay, here, sit on your butt if you can.

  • There we go!

  • Let's just lie here for awhile.

  • (audience laughing)

  • That's fine.

  • You know, I can work with that.

  • Hey, Ross? Yeah.

  • Do you ever wonder, like,

  • (audience laughing)

  • if it was the end of the universe,

  • but then what's after that, do you know what I mean?

  • I just keep coming and coming.

  • I never give up until it starts to get difficult,

  • and then I usually quit. (audience laughing)

  • Ross?

  • Conan.

  • I love you. (audience laughing)

  • Let's get back out there. All right, let's do it.

  • (Conan grunting)

  • 50/50. 50/50.

  • Loosey goosey leaning back, edging back into hill.

  • (upbeat rock music)

  • (audience laughing)

  • Who do you think you are? (audience laughing)

  • God?

  • You think you're God?

  • (sobbing)

  • I can't, God! (sobs)

  • Okay, I'm better. (audience laughing)

  • Let's go.

  • (upbeat rock music)

  • Now you're all toes now. Now I'm toes, baby!

  • (audience laughing) This is the more natural

  • position for a snowboarder to be in.

  • Why didn't we start on that then?

  • (audience laughing)

  • I just thought, you know, you're kind of

  • half-ass backwards all the time

  • that I'd just go with the flow.

  • [Audience Member] Oh, ho, ho, ho!

  • Don't make me dial you up, dude.
