I find a little session of nose rolling down a slope before I start to actually butter to be helpful to get the muscle memory and board flex realigned.

DANG! If you were to screw that up while having a bit of speed.... especially with no helmet....headache/concussion anyone?

more exaggerated press yeh, easier? dunno I find it a downright chore on a 24"+

as for balance & stability, yeh I agree, but its a lot harder work shifting your weight nose or tail and a bitch on older knees especially with those aggressive duck angles you rock, which is why I think its impressive...

24WERD wide is all relative to the person.

chomps1211 Made it alla way round and then some today!!! I even managed to link 3 nose roll 360's for a full 1080!!!! It's not very fluid yet, but man did it feel good the first time I held that press all the way around!


....and nope! You guys were right. It Wasn't done on the Rome after I changed the centering of the bindings. I Did it on my NS Proto with the setup I've been riding all along.

stan_darsh it may just be that you guys are more comfortable turning frontside... i have more difficulty going frontside, as backside is what's naturally carried over for me from skateboarding. maybe do lots of backside tricks? get your bs 180s dialed in off sidehits, small kickers etc? and i'll take the same advice for my frontside stuff, haha!

Donutz I'm currently trying to learn backside butters, and having problems getting the rotation going. I'm pretty sure my problem is that when I pull up the nose, my weight tends to be heelside i.e. I'm leaning a bit back. When trying to rotate to toeside, that obviously creates an immediate problem.

Reason I think this is the issue is because if I just do spins without lifting the nose, I have no problem at all.
