Butter Tips please (my 1st post)
Hopefully this is a good place to post this sort of topic. So, I just recently bought a park pickle and spent my 2nd day riding it today. Lovin it already!!! I have noticed the ease in which I have been able to butter with this board compared to the NS Heritage I have been riding since the beginning of this season. I am still in the learning phases of buttering and havent gotten into buttering into jumps yet. I pretty much been turning into switch, doing a fakie nose press and using the momentum from the turn to keep spinning the butter. I find thats the easiest way to into spinning while buttering. does anyone got any tips on improving butters, leaning more/less? Certain angles I find make butters alot easier. Is there anything I should be doing to my edges to keep from hanging up in the snow? I have never detuned my edges in the 11yrs I been riding. I have been thinking of detuning my edges in hopes of dedicating myself to riding more park the rest of the season. Is there any concerns with detuning the Magna Traction style edges on my board? Also, havent ever noticed getting hung up on rails being a problem and I have spent a couple seasons where I would spend 80% plus of my time in the park. Do I really need to detune my edges, will it affect riding the groomers and powder enough to hurt my riding abilities?
Thanks for all the help, Sorry for the length of my first post, just had a few ?'s needed some good experienced help on.
