How To Do 360s On A Snowboard
Learning how to do 360's on a snowboard can be fun and educational. A three sixty on a snowboard is like anything else, going around one full revolution. Learning to three sixty on a snowboard is a great way to work on basics and explore the expert levels of the sport. Doing a three sixty requires you to understand your level of expertise and an appreciation and respect to the danger a three sixty poses. Evaluate your skill level and then try out the powder or air three sixty.
What you will need for this trick:
- Freestyle snowboard
- Downhill area or half/quarter pipes
- Beginner or expert snowboarding level
- Like any trick, make yourself ready by stretching and warming up. Check out the snowboarding terrain for any obstacles. Be sure you have plenty of space to perform your trick and be cautious of others coming into your field of play.
- For the ground three sixty, head to a downhill area. Strap in and head downhill. Lean forward onto your toe side. This will cause you to turn. Continue to lean in on the tow side until you have made a full revolution. The deeper your toe side is the tighter the turn.
- For the air three sixty, head to the half pipe or quarter pipe. Gain sufficient speed to grab plenty of air. As you approach the top of the jump, bend at your knees slightly. Push off the jump and twist as you near the apex. Pull your knees to your chest and grab either heel or toe side.
- Once one revolution is met, release the grab and bring your legs to wards the ground. With your knees still slightly bent, leaving your arms out, stick the jump. Allow your knees to bend slightly to avoid injury.
