How to 180 On & Off a Box Snowboarding – Tutorial Video

Learn how to 180 on and off a box. This is a fun intermediate trick, which combines a lot of different 180 skills. To help make learning this trick easy I’m going to break down into three parts, teach you the 180 skills needed to complete each part and how you can prepare for this trick outside the park.
The first part of this trick is the twisting 180 On. As you approach the box you need get ready to do a quick 180 on from your heel edge. For the twisting 180 first turn your upper body forward, then twist you lower body and snowboard around. This twisting motion will get your board on 180 quickly and stop your snowboard from rotating too much. You can practice this twisting motion outside the park first on an easy flat slope.
The second part of this trick is landing your spin on the box switch, with your snowboard flat. You need to be confident landing on the box switch so you can commit to the 180 on. You also need to be in control sliding switch so you can set up the 180 off. Practice switch 5050’s on the box first to get comfortable sliding switch. You can also practice your switch landings outside the park, working on landing with your snowboard fairy flat.
The third part of this trick is doing a switch 180 off without using your edges. Because you’re sliding across hard plastic you cant use your edge to help you 180. You can twist off with your snowboard flat or you can nollie 180 off which gives you more time in the air before the landing. Use the twisting motion, so you can quickly get the spin around and stop the rotation for the landing. As you get to the end of the box turn your upper body backwards, then twist your lower body and snowboard 180. You can also practice this switch nollie 180 outside the park.
Take the time to master all your 180 skills on an easy slope, before you bring them together on a small box in the park. Once your comfortable with 180’s on and off boxes you can start working your way up towards 180’s on and off more difficult features like down boxes and rails.

My name is Kevin Pearce and I'm the creator of Snowboardprocamp. Since 2011 I've been producing snowboard tutorials for beginner to advanced riders. I taught snowboarding for over ten years and it was the best experience of my life. My reason for creating Snowboardprocamp was so that I could share that experience and make snowboarding accessible to people. I was full-time snowboard coach in Whistler B.C for the eight years. I taught on the mountain five days a week, freeriding with students and teaching them tricks in the terrain park. In the terrain park I have experience teaching everything from beginner tricks in the small park to more advanced tricks on larger jumps. I have extensive alpine knowledge, where I took students through secret powder stashes and off cliff drops. I'm also very experienced teaching beginner riders on their first day and progressing them to an advanced level. Whistler was a great place for me to develop my riding and teaching skills because of the size of our mountains, the amount of snow we get each year, and our long season from November to May.
