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.

How To Do Your First Rail Snowboarding
Snowboard tips to help you be successful on your first rail snowboarding. Rails are a more advanced feature in terrain park and are key if you want to get into doing more advanced rail snowboarding tricks.
Before attempting rails you should first have boxes mastered. There are many different types of boxes to challenge your snowboarding skills and prepare you for rails. You should have at least 10 snowboard tricks on box in your trick list before attempting any rail.
When you first attempt a rail you want to find the easiest one possible. We had this rail in our beginner park which is perfect for learning. But a lot of terrain parks won’t have a rail this small and you’ll probably have to start on something bigger.
To overcome any fears of hitting your first rail, just remember that it’s all in the preparation. Put in the time learning tricks on boxes and improving your overall riding skills. Review these tips and keep them fresh in your head for when you’re ready to attempt your first rail. Check out the playlist for more videos on box and rail tricks.

Ground Snowboard Trick – How To Tail Tap Revert
In this video I want to give you guys some tips on how to do my favorite ground snowboard trick, the tail tap revert. This is a fun ground snowboard trick because there are so many things you can tap as you ride the slopes. For this video we’re tapping a piece of bamboo that we grabbed off the lifties.
Let’s start by breaking down each step of the tail tap revert. So, I’m riding in with pressure on my toe edge, this will give me a solid base to pop from. As I pop into the air I do a small front side shifty to get the tap. At the same time I’m setting up the revert, by turning my upper body backwards, then twisting a back 180, landing with pressure on my heel edge.
You can see that there are actually two separate ground snowboard tricks working together in the tail tap revert, the front shifty, and twisting back 180.
To make learning this trick easy, let’s break it down into two parts the front shifty and back 180.
For a front shifty twist your body in the air by turning your upper body back, as you turn your lower body and board forward. By twisting in the air like this you can get your board completely sideways, then untwist for the landing. Doing a solid front shifty is key for getting the tap.
For the back 180 pop clean into the air off your toes, turning you upper body backwards, then twisting your lower body and snowboard to get the 180 around. This twisting 180 is exact same motion you’ll use to complete the revert off the tap. Tapping will actually rebound your board and help you snap the 180 around quickly.
Once you’re confident with the front shifty and twisting back 180 you can combine them to get the tap and revert out.
The most common mistake I have when trying this ground snowboard trick is going for the tap too late. You can see in this clip that I pop into the air a bit too late and miss the tap. Now I know that on the next attempt I need to pop a bit earlier.
So that’s the tail tap revert, I hope you guys enjoy this ground snowboard trick as much as I do.

How to Hit a Jump – Snowboard Tutorial Video
Tip help you hit a jump in and out of the park. Learning to hit a jump is the first step to riding park, and learning tricks.
To start you want find a jump to practice on, where you are comfortable with the amount of air, and confident you’re going to make the landing. From jumping off the slope, small jumps in the park, to larger jumps, find the right size jump for your ability.
As you ride into hit a jump do a few turns, to set your speed. You want to have enough speed to clear the knuckle of the jump, but not too much or you’ll pass the tranny and land flat. Once you have your speed right point your board straight and flat toward the lip.
As you get to the lip of the jump, pop your board into the air by jumping level from your flat base. Or you can pop a clean ollie. Getting a level pop will keep you balanced in the air. To keep you board straight in the air, make sure your back hand is over your tail, and your shoulders are parallel to your board.
In the air suck your knees up to keep yourself compact and balanced. This will also make it easy to go for a grab.
Spot your landing from in the air, and prepare to bend your knees to absorb the landing and ride away clean. I like to plan a heel turn after landing to control my speed and I can see any obstacles that may be in the landing.
To recap how to hit a jump. First find a jump that you’re comfortable with, do a few turns on the ride in to set your speed, pop your board level into the air from a flat base, suck your knees up, spot the landing and prepare to bend your knees to ride it out clean.
