Was weighing the option of possibly riding tomorrow but after this rain it's gonna be shit until the snow is done falling, and I can probably only get out in the morning. Knee still recovering but up around the 75% mark today, so probably should just hold off for Friday and Sunday.
I'm not sure if it has a name,... Basically doing a nose press ( regular and switch ) and rotating the board 90° to the slope. Sliding on the heelside tip of the board while holding the press at 90° to the fall line.
If I was doing this on a box or rail it would be a "boardslide?" Is that right? Is it called anything particular when done just sliding down the groomer? Or is it JAB? (...Just Another Butter?)
I only managed twice to get a tiny (...lame) little ollie out to straight, but I was holding the pressed 90° rotated position for quite a fair distance.
Indeed, yeah it would be a boardslide or a noseslide. On the ground IDK what I'd call it... if you did a 180 over the nose then it's a nose roll 180 or something like that, but I know what you're saying just tweaking on the nose. In longboarding I think they call that a nose blunt, maybe same on snow I'm not sure. But whatever you call it...
If you are just rolling back to revert in to your normal forward stance, here's your next steps:
Now you can take that whatever-you-wanna-call-it and "pop" a revert out of it , or pop the remaining 90 degrees to your switch stance (both of these are fairly easy) or more advanced step is to pop 270 out of it. I actually just learned that the other day, and then took that to the boxes so it became boardslide 270 out.
but they're fun. Just be warned: you can definitely catch an edge on the flat land tricks.
(and you thought those days were behind you!)
