This is a free section of our Buttering tutorials for regular snowboarders.
Pressed Body position for nose and tail presses
An athletic and relaxed body position will maximize your balance while riding. Flexed knees and ankles, back straight and head up, shoulders, hips and knees aligned with the direction of your board.
When riding, our weight is normally positioned directly in the centre of our feet however the key to buttering is being able to adjust your balance through different points on your board.
Moving around on flat areas is actually a pretty good exercise to improve your butters.
Try jumping from nose to tail back and forth like this, now add some direction to get across flat areas.
See how smooth and controlled you can make this, staying balanced between each hop.
