Snowboard Butters & Presses – Off Season Training

By training off the snow you’ll have the time and repetition to master the movements and build the strength needed to flex your board for the snowboard butters and presses.
For off season training, I’m using a half foam roller, and my snowboard has a medium flex with a rating of 4.
To get started do a quick warm up to get your legs and body moving. Notice how I’m bouncing back and forth and alternating my weight over my boards nose and tail.
The benefit of off season training is being able to master the movements. For snowboard butters and presses the most important movement, is the ability to move your wait around your board. For the tail press, move your weight over the tail of your board by bending your back leg, moving your hips over your tail, and keeping tension on your front leg to flex your board. For the nose press bend your front leg, move your hips over your nose, and keep tension on your back leg to flex your board.
By repeating these movement you’ll build the strength, that you need to pull off these trick on the snow. When I first starter training snowboard butters and presses off snow, I did find it hard to get deep into press and to practice for very long. But each time I practice it became easier to press my board and I was able to train longer.
Off season training will pay off when it comes time to take you presses to the snow. You’ll be able to get deeper into press and hold your butters for longer.
If you’ve done some off season training, it would be awesome to see your progression. Connect on with me on Instagram and use the hashtag snowboard training to share your photos and videos. It would also be cool to get some feedback any ideas for training videos you want to see made next. Check out more training and tutorial videos by clicking the link in the corner. Have fun out there training! And I’ll talk to ya later.

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. If you're looking to get into snowboarding or progress your riding, subscribe to this page, check out the videos, and stay tuned!
