Yeah that's what I thought it could be... unlike butters "nose rolls" are initiated mostly with upper body movement.. you are pushing a nose press while simultaneously throwing your shoulders around and swinging that leg... Honestly if you practice taking it a little bit more slowly you'll really dial it in without doing the nollie... just remember to keep all of your weight on that front leg so it doesn't pop up...
I think it took me about an hour to learn.. but I didn't realize it was a real trick I was just practicing the motion for trying a full butter hahaha... well hell what a trick to have... once you get it down the way you're trying you should be able to do it any direction.. I can do them FS/BS switch FS/BS

Sounds like you may not be locking in on the press. Keep your lead foot flexed, like you're doing a nose press, shift your weight toward the front of your board and turn your shoulders in the direction you want to spin. Thats what I do for nose rolls.
Like Blind said, practice pressing alot!
I want to get to the point to where I can really slow the rotation down and hold a deep press throughout.

the vid has a pretty long intro, the trick is at 0:25. i can get the board around but instead of the nose sticking to the ground, i keep nollieing out of the press. am i throwing my body to hard and causing me to launch in the air?

|BliND KiNK||Welcome to the forum.. I'm going to assume you mean a 180 butter? ... or is a nose roll when you use upper body? never heard of it .... practice presses... A LOT.. on nose and tail.. basically to do what I think you do is pull the press.. so in this case go into a nose press and as you are turn your head and shoulders (hur hur hur) the direction you want to spin and then swing that leg out like a damn dancer.|

Need help with Nose Rolls
First post here but i've been reading a lot of tips from this forum. I recently started trying to get these down. I can do the front side nose roll but i can't do it without doing the nollie out. how can i do the nose roll with out launching myself in the air.
i will ride down on my heel edge (regular), nose press and swing my back hip to the front. everytime i launch myself into the air. i know it's a great little tick to have in the bag, but kind of annoying when i want to do a nice small smooth nose roll.
any help is appreciated and thank you in advance for your help.
