To butter on a snowboard, you will need:
- A snowboard
- A bunny slope
- Snowboarding gear
- Basic abilities on a snowboard
- To butter on a snowboard, first find a clear area to perform your flat-ground three-sixty. By this point, you should know if you are regular or goofy foot. You will want to initiate a heel side turn. This will be either to the left or right depending on your lead foot.
- You should be on the edge of the snowboard. As you initiate the heel side turn your body and head will need to move in that direction. Follow this through the full three hundred and sixty degrees.
- Once all the way around, set off the edge. You have just completed a basic butter. This technique is an old-school butter that not only holds plenty of history but is fun as well.
