Shouldn't I be able to do it either way?

flysolo. I should have phrased it better, I mean that when I initiate the counter-rotation off the tail press I end up rotating 90 instead of 180 (Not all the time but still). But on flat ground this is easy.

CassMT forward momentum helps you stay straight, more speed helps you go more straiter

Slush Puppie I think this is probably exposing posture issues that are already there. Be sure to keep your shoulders and hips inline with the board and really get the hip aft rather than bend at the waist as your basic press position. Make sure you keep the read knee outside of your foot (not tucked in pointing forward).

To pop the 180 out from the tail press, you need to use counter rotation not rotation. So practice some counter rotation 180s first then take them to your press. but its really pretty easy once you break down the steps and looks fairly rad IMO. Have fun!

or nollie into a tailpress then nollie tap again into a 180 out
On flat ground when I'm not moving, I can do this easily. But as soon as I take it to a slope it throws me off balance everytime and I end up doing some weird ass rotation that looks terrible and faceplant on the snow

Fuck no it's not, wheelies are the shit.

This!

I love me some pow butters. Not much into buttering around on groomers, gotta work too damn hard with the stiffer boards I tend to ride.
