How to Tripod Snowboarding
In this video I’m going to teach you how to do a tripod snowboarding. Tripod’s are fun ground trick you can practice with your friends almost anywhere on the mountain. To make learning this trick easy I’ll give you tips on how to get into the tripod and how keep your board straight and balance once you’re in it.
Start, by finding a flat spot where you can practice. To get into the tripod, turn your body and reach to plant your hands in the snow. At the same time move all your body weight over your snowboards tail. This will make it super easy to lift the nose of your board into the air.
When you’re ready to take the tripod to the slope, start by setting it up from your toe edge. You’re toe edge will give you a solid platform to control your speed and initiate the tripod from. First, let your snowboard run down hill, then turn to plant your hands and move your weight to your tail. The slope of the run will actually help you to move your weight back and lift your boards nose in the air. Once you’re comfortable, you can start to come up with other more creative ways to get into it.
When you’re in the tripod, you want to keep your board centered between your hands and pointed straight into the air. Practice on the flat ground, using your core muscles to balance and hold your board up straight. This will build your muscle memory, so you know exactly how it should feel when you take it to the slope. The key to keeping your snowboard balanced and straight on the slope, is to first pick a run that’s level. If the run curves to the left or right, then your board will lean in that direction and cause you to tip over. Look down threw your arms to make sure your board is running straight and down the level part of the run.
