How to Butter Snowboarding – Tutorial Video
Tips for learning how to butter snowboarding. Butters are a super fun ground trick which combing the skills of pressing and spinning. When learning butters first start on the flat ground, then take them to a mellow slope, after that start getting creative with your butters, and adding them into tricks.
To get a good butter you first need to be really comfortable doing nose and tail presses. For the tail press there are three things that happen. Moving your hips over your tail, bending your back leg while you straightening your front leg. Do the same for the nose press, hips over your nose, front leg bent, back leg straight. Get comfortable pressing on the flat ground then bring them to a mellow slope where you can practice your nose and tail presses with a bit of speed.
Next you want to add spinning to the butter. To start you need to wind your body up and rotate in the direction you want to spin. As you rotate get into your press and lock in the butter. Keep your head looking around to keep the butter going. Once you have the butter dialed on the flat ground it’s time to take it to a mellow slope.
When butter snowboarding on the slope decide whether you’re going to butter on your nose or tail. I prefer tail. Start the butter by winding up and rotating to get the spin going. At the same time get into your tail press with your back knee bent, front leg straight and hips over your tail. Keep your head looking around to keep the spin going. Once you have butters dialed start getting creative with it, like buttering into 180’s and anything else you can come up with.
