Nice, I'll have to check it out. I went to Glen Eden the day before yesterday, very unimpressed but I do want to try their little terrain park they have there. I suck with boxes and rails and it seems like it would be a good place to learn. They seem easy enough there, going to try it out next time I go.

First run of the season today and conditions were BAD to put it lightly. But we made the best out of it and still had fun

Got hit with some rain yesterday so there were a bunch of slush and ice patches which resulted in some trail closures. I was rusty laugh.gif Had a close call where I hit a patch of ice and somehow caught my edge. Ended up sliding to the bottom of the hill, head first on my back. Almost hit the fence roll.gif I tried digging my board into the snow when I managed to slide feet first but that did nothing

I can transfer edge to edge no problem, pretty much just do circles all the way down the hill like that lol but the way he 180s is something else. Learn how to go edge to edge, I tried to do it flat and just kept eating snow because I kept catching the edge.

I just think its crazy how high hes getting the board off the ground to do those 180's. I cant even get my nose up anywhere near that high in a tail press. That's insane, I'm guessing hes been doing it for a very long time. 

post #529 of 580
It's easier to learn doing super wide turns Using the momentum of the turn as you lean into your press makes 180s almost effortless. You just don't notice it in the video because he's cruising and his turns are fairly tight.
post #530 of 580
I'm not sure if that really made sense lol basically if you're coming super wide heelside you're almost facing the bottom of the hill. Even if you get on your nose and can only bring the board around 90 or so you'll be able to ride it out and you can work up from there. Cruising down the hill if you can't get the board around the full 180 you're eating ****. Hope that helps

I've sort figured out how to do 180's, but it's not as smooth as that guy. The key is to put the weight on the back of your board as you whip with your forefoot. Then quickly putting weight on you front foot (was back foot earlier). Was able to do this a few times, but not nearly as smooth as that guy in the video.

Makes sense, something I'm going to work on this season once I've got the boxes and ramps down.

Somehow that makes a lot more sense. I need to get used to lifting the board as I do this. I can do it with the board almost flat but not getting it high enough for my liking.

Even if your press isn't that strong you're swinging the board down the mountain so you shouldn't get caught up. You'll be tossing your own flavor on it soon enough lol
post #538 of 580
Watch that video again keeping in mind what I said. You'll see him initiate turns and just roll over his nose from edge to edge. If you ever have to hit a mountain with some first dayers it's a great way to let them keep up and not look like an ******* lol frontside backside frontside backside......
