What's your fave trick right now?

I'm finding myself rockin nosegrabs off everything right now, tweakin them with a little bs shifty. Early season, all the jumps are ratchet so I haven't really been doing any spins yet.

Also bs 180 nose butter 180 out on flat is a fun one.

90' is fine bro, I don't think I'm anything past that, on the nose grab i'm just a little tweaked, like 15'. Counter rotating with your arms and looking over your shoulder is all I can really say for bs shifties though, I'm not a pro at them... do them a lot off little bumps, that helps. *edit - tweaking your front leg out might help too, I guess I do that.

Nose grabs are all about bringing the board to your hand, never reach for it. Do them without grabbing until it's literally right there. Just pop and then tweak your back leg down and straight and bend your front knee up. Actually if you stand on the ground right now and lift your front foot so you can grab is with your foot, thats it right there. So easy. You can tweak it by just pushing your back foot out behind you a little for style, also once you have the nose in your hand, pull on on it flex the board, that adds style too.

bs 180 methods are pretty cool, not many people do them either. I don't, but if I could do a good method I would try

i love bs180 methods... it just feels like throwing yourself blindly all slow and lazy, and then it just stomps so easy.

my best trick is probably a front 3 grab off a 20-25ft drop... my favorite might be pow butter 3s or some ridiculous pillow line.
