How to Tail Grab Snowboarding Trick Tutorial
In this video I’ve got three tips for doing a tail grab snowboarding. The tail grab is a fun trick you can practice on small jumps, on hips and even on the ground. This can be a difficult trick because you can’t see your tail when you go to grab it, but hopefully these few tips will help you out.
Let’s start by breaking down the tail grab. Ride into the jump with the right amount of speed, pop a clean ollie off the lip, bend you knees and reach your back hand for your tail. Hold onto the grab until you ready to let go and stomp the landing.
The first tip is to practice the tail grab on the ground as you ride. Grabbing your tail as you ride will build your muscle memory and give you an idea what the grab will feel like in the air.
The second tip is to ollie off the lip. Ollieing will make your back leg extend off the lip, then bend in the air, bringing your tail in close, so its easy to go for the grab.
The third tip is to visualize the tail grab. Because you can’t see the grab its important to visualize so you know where your tail will be and where you need to reach your hand. If you miss the grab the first time, have confidence that the grab will be there the next time.

First Step to Carving on a Snowboard
In this video I’m going show you the first step to carving on a snowboard. The goal of carving is to ride on your snowboard edge so you leave a clean line in the snow behind you. The best way to start practicing carving is to ride across the slope on your edge, turning up the hill slightly at the end to control your speed. Here you can work on the skills which will get your edge in the snow and keep you balanced on it. Be safe when you practice these carves by looking up the slope first to make sure no other riders are coming.
For your toe edge carve you want to push your knees forward and keep your back straight. Pushing your knees towards the snow will lift your heel edge and drive your toe edge into the snow. The more you push your knees forward, the great the angle you’ll create between your board and the snow. Ride with your back straight to keep more of your weight over your toe edge. If your back is bent forward you’ll put too much of your weight over the snow, causing your toe edge to slide out. Your body also need to be centered between your binding, this will distribute your weight evenly across your toe edge. Put these toe carve skills together and you’ll see a clean line in the snow behind you.
For the heel edge carve ride across the slope with your hips and knees bent, like you’re sitting in a chair. Bending at your knees and hips will lift your toe edge up and dig your heel edge into the snow. The deeper you can sit into the chair, the great the angle between you board and the snow. Bending at your hips will also keep your back bent slightly forward, keeping more of your weight over your heel edge. If your standing too tall with your back straight you’ll put too much over your weight over the snow, causing your heel edge to slide out. Your body also need to be centered between your binding, this will distribute your weight evenly across your heel edge. Put these heel carve skills together and you’ll see a clean line in the snow behind you.
Good luck practicing these carves guys. If you have any questions about carving or if you have any tips you can leave them in the comment section. Remember to be safe and look up hill for other riders. Check out the next carving video, for tips on how to start linking your carving turns together.

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.
Good luck with the tripods snowboarding guys! If you have any questions you can leave them in the comment section. You can also tell me if there are any other tricks you wanna learn.

5 Snowboard Warm Ups – On Mountain Tutorial
In this video I’m going to show you 5 snowboard warm ups that you can on the mountain. These are going to help prevent injuries, get your body moving, and focus your mind on the skill or trick that you want to learn that day.
Start, with a few arm stretches and arm circles. The most common injuries in snowboarding are related to wrists and shoulders, so this is a great way to help prevent those injuries. Even once you get going on your first run, continue to do arm circles and get your shoulders really warmed up.
Next get into a squat. This snowboard warm up will stretch out your legs, hips and lower back. When I’m squatting I’m thinking about all the different grabs I can do on my board and just how much flexibility I need to get that grab. You can continue to bend your knees and grab your board as your ride to get warmed up and to remind yourself of what grab feels like.
You can also bend your knees and heel slide into switch. This will warm up your legs by getting into a seated position, and get your mind thinking about switch riding. This is also the same movement if you want to learn back boardslides to switch out.
Twisting while you ride is a great snowboard warm up for your core muscles. If you’re good at switch riding then you can do the full 180 twists. This is also great practice for twisting 180’s. If your not ready for switch riding yet, you can warm up your core by twisting front and back shiftys. This is also great practice for speed checks, board slides, and for doing shifty’s in the air.
If your goal for the day is butters, then you can do some nose and tail presses on the spot. This snowboard warm up will give your legs that feeling of flexing your board. Take this to the next level by doing the penguin walk, which will definitely get your heart rate up and gets you into the rhythm of moving your weight back and forth over your nose and tail.
I hope these 5 snowboard warm ups will give you some ideas for stretching and warming up on the mountain. If you have some warm up or stretches that your do, it would be great to hear about them in the comment section. If you found this video helpful, remember to give it a thumbs up!

How to Twist 180 Snowboarding
Tips on how to twist 180 snowboarding. These are essential for your trick list because they’re a very quick way to 180, you can do them off any edge, and you can even do them from an Ollie or nollie. They are also key if you want learn 180’s off boxes and rails. The difference between a twisting and traditional 180 is in the traditional style you wind up and rotate to get the 180 around, where in the twisting style you just turn your shoulders and twist your board below you.
To start, practice the twisting motion as you ride. Turning your shoulders in the direction you want to 180, then twisting your hips to slide your board around. Twisting like this is a great way to practice and improve your switch riding as well.
Once you have the twisting while riding down, stop on the side of the slope and add in the jump. Build a platform by getting your edge firmly into the snow. Turn your head and shoulder into the direct you want to 180 snowboarding. Bend your knees and jump into the air as you twist your hips and board around. Land on the opposite edge with your knees bent and back fairly straight. Keeping your weight balanced over the center of your board.
Next find mellow slope where you have some space to twist the 180 while riding. Start at a speed you’re comfortable with, riding across the slope is a great way to control your speed while twisting the 180 snowboarding. Build up your speed as you improve and you could even find a ledge to get some extra height. Remember to break this trick down into the individual parts to get it around successfully. Switch riding is always key for having the confidence to commit to the landing. My personal favorite for this trick is come in on my heel edge, then do a nollie into backside 180.
So, remember guys start out with some twists as your ride, then add in the jump on side of the slope, before practicing on mellow runs and small ledges.
