Zombie Calm??? Aw Man!!! I worked S-o-o-o hard learning to make absolutely sure I wasn't rockin' the "Mystery Date" look!!! Now I gotta learn how to ride "Disco Style??"
Fair enough! I haven't really got into butters much to be able to help. I occasionally pop up onto the tail for fun but then put it right back down. Might look cool if you got on the tail, started to rotate like you were doing, then compress the tail and pop off it, landing on the nose in a sort of "butter 180" kinda thing.

I think my boarding probably looks like I'm mating with my mystery date then punching her in the head.
