Buttering?

Hello, I watched a video of a guy buttering, and strangely i've never seen it before, and looks like great fun!

I am an intermediate rider i'd say (been riding for 4 years) so i can do some basic tricks (im not really into tricks, just a few small jumps and jibbing) but this buttering thing caught my attention and i'd like to learn it.

Is there any good video that explains how to do it? I couldnt find any.

Thanks!

I've got my presses dialed in and still can't really do it at all... there are a lot of threads all over the forum though, so check out the search button at the top

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

well snowolf while you're present on this thread, figured I may as well ask.. I've been toying with presses and butters.. not really getting a full rotation on the butters but I can do a mean BS 270 pretzel from them... I guess the big thing is when I pull my board up with my front foot sometimes it feels like it's going to rip my foot off.. almost literally.. and I was wondering what you thought could be the cause?

it's a k2 www not too broken in but it flexes well .. ( 3 flex rating I believe? )

Not only do you often weight the lead foot while riding, on most boards the tip is often both longer and more flexible than the tail. It makes it easier to bend and stuff.

SO! how do you butter on a box? I finally got it down, some more practice tomorrow.. but basically I'm shifting weight toes/heel on the foot while my nose/tail is in the air.... I just wonder how well this way transfers to the boxes?

most people i see that try to do presses look like me trying to do wheelies on my motorcycle, up and down, up and down. they just don;t get it that when you lift the front end up you keep that position by leaning back. they just pull the front end up for 1 second back down and repeat it over and over again and they think they look good while doing it.

That's an "aborted ollie trick". lol

Yo, I just got my first basic butters down this weekend. Previously I've been like strapping onto my board in front of a TV show every couple of days and doing presses and practicing the balance. It's still harder on snow, but conditioning your muscles and posture helps a lot this way. I did this press for what must be like 200 feet! ...on bumpy snow too! woot! I was also able to do some switch press, but not for that long. I even did a 180 to press by accident and held it for a short time before I fell!
