But wouldn't that just be a front flip?A cartwheel entails hands on the ground which is what makes it look like the old cart wheels going around.

pencap75 There is some youtube video out there of japanese riders doing front flips from flat ground... completely and utterly sick.

bamfb2 Sounds similar to a front flip/roll that people do off of bumps (not moguls). You kind of do a nollie while flipping your upper body forward and bringing the board behind you, up over the top, then down hill, and then landing. It would be the same as a cartwheel but without using your hands.

Snowboard cartwheels/somersaults

So three weeks ago my local hill got 8 inches of fresh powder and the roads were shit and every school in the area was canceled, so me and my friends thought it would be a great idea to go to our local hill and shred some powder. I got the idea as i finished hitting a box to try cartwheeling on a snowboard, and I landed it! but it took alot of upper body strength because i leaned back then kicked and put my hands on the ground and pushed and landed normal on my snowboard. I was wondering if anyone else has tried this?
