One thing about buttering though...

As I'm still on a learning vibe, Is speed a friend when buttering???
I'm not talking about crazy speed, just a good amount or, should I pull it back I little and run slow to start???
go alittle slower to start so you can press and get the feel for getting your body over your tail and nose as you play around, and turning your body to initiate rotations/etc. That way, if you catch an edge while playin' around you won't slam so hard ya see stars......lol

as you get more confident, you can dial up the speed.
you will know as you go...
good luck and this thread has been fun to read and follow your journey.
