How To Bluntslide Snowboarding
Every snowboarder needs to learn how to bluntslide snowboard. A bluntslide is one of the coolest looking slides that can be performed on a snowboard. While this slide is a little difficult, it's well worth learning. The following guide will help you learn how to bluntslide.
To bluntslide snowboard, you will need:
- A snowboard
- A rail
- Protective gear
- First, you need to wear protective gear when learning a new snowboarding trick. A helmet is especially important when attempting rail tricks. You do not want to hit your head on the rail or fall back and hit your head on the ground. Additionally, it is not recommended that you attempt the bluntslide if you cannot already perform the tail slide.
The first step in performing a bluntslide while snowboarding is to pick up enough speed that you can make the slide.
- When you have picked up enough speed, jump onto the rail so that the tail of the snowboard is receiving all of your weight. You will need to adjust your body in a particular way so that you do not fall. The way to arrange your body varies by individual and has to do with your height and weight. Getting the proper balance on a rail will take some practice.
- Lift the nose of your snowboard into the air while performing the bluntslide. This is what makes the bluntslide different from the tail slide.
- Land the bluntslide firmly on the ground and keep snowboarding. This slide will look really cool and increase your credibility as a skateboarder.
