How To Do Snowboard Tricks
Learning how to do snowboard tricks can take time and requires constant practice. Knowing how to snowboard well comes first. After you have figured out how to ride a board well, you may partake in more complex activities, such as learning snowboard tricks. The following is some advice on learning how to do snowboard tricks.
Things you'll need:
- Snowboarding gear
- Learning how to do snowboard tricks requires you to begin with the basics. You have to make sure you have the right gear. A nice board, comfortable fitting boots and apparel that suits your needs is essential. You must also know how to actually snowboard. Practice on the slopes, as only once you have built up some real experience and can maintain your balance on the board can you begin to learn tricks.
Once you have gotten the hang of snowboarding, you can actually start to learn how to do tricks. Start with jumping. There are some surface tricks, such as wheelies, but aerial tricks are generally more popular. First, practice jumping. Start by practicing from a standstill and work your way up so you can actually do it while cruising downhill or even until you can get some serious air by using moguls or jumps. All tricks require air time, so first and foremost, learn how to get some air. Once you have mastered the ollie, you may move on. Learning how to do snowboard tricks generally begins with understanding the jump, which is the starting point for most tricks.
- After you get jumping down, you may begin to learn basic aerial tricks. Basic jump tricks, such as the 180, is a basic way to start. Simply work on jumping up and rotating or twisting your body so that the board lands facing in the right direction, but your other foot is forward. Once you have learned this, try to manage 360 jumps where you do a full, in-air rotation. After you have these down, you may begin to work on harder tricks and learn to use half pipes.
