|Jon T||I would also get in the gym and work out. The stronger you are the easier all of these tricks will come. The more flexible you are the more you can poke out your grabs and add style to your game. Balance boards are always good to get on also. I also put my board on and practice every single grab possible. Hope that helps a little. Playing on the grass is a killer way to gain muscle memory, but it is hard to learn anything new. JonT|

A friend of mine is taking that idea one step further. We're going to be giving it a thorough test on Sunday.

build a drop ramp and jib setup
I built a 7' platform/drop in ramp and 14' jib setup.....
if you use hdpe lattice on the drop and astroturf on the lip, you
can get good speed/slide w/soap and water. Use plastic tarp at the end of the jib to land on instead of grass.
It works dope if you set it up right and you can practice
youtube "backyard summer snowboarding" to get ideas....

|snowboardboi||I have a dh2 from 2010/2011. It's pretty stiff, but I'm pretty light. Agreed with the buttering comments. I hate it even more when people do it slowly right in front of you. You can practice holding the butters. Not really in skill, but muscle control. It gets pretty tiring after two minutes.|

Lol @ snapping board comments... no way, unless it's a total POS! I do tail blocks in my sleeps (sometimes literally so) and on any type of surface - they are super easy and very fun/stylish.
And btw... how can you butter when you aren't moving?!?! I'd like to see some vids of someone buttering with power at speed, none of this crappy 10mph spinning down a green cat track crap So many people can butter, but 99% of them look ghay.

id go for some switch backside double cork 12's for good measure, gotta get one up on the shredder groms
really though, theres not much you can learn on grass. go skate and get comfortable riding, or riding switch or whatever it is you want to learn

|snowboardboi||Yeah, I'll try to find a hill. I only have a field in my backyard right now so I was thinking of how to tail block on flat ground.|
