Default Nose Press Help

Any advice for nose presses? Every time I try them, I end up eating a face full of snow. I can tail press fine but can't do nose presses. someone told me learning to do tail presses while riding switch is a good way to work on your nose press? any other suggestions?

actually, i can do them on flat ground to. it's something about leaning forward on my nose while going down hill that really trips me out. I usually catch an edge and eat a face full of snow or i extend to much and end up barrel rolling

Shoulders !parallel! to the board.
Bend front foot and extend rear that will put you into best stance.
Also back straight, dont bend in the waist.
Look where u want go , dont look down or at your tail.

i find these much harder to do on snow than on flat boxes. just try it on a box and it'll feel much better IMO

Great tips Zany!

I would also add to try and push the weight of your hip into a spot on the front of the board. This will help you initiate more of a "press" than just lifting your tail off the ground.

Another tip would be to learn how to control your board while on the nose. As strange as it sounds, try using torsion between your feet and using your ankles to fully control the edges.
Not needed for a 10 yards press, a bit more usefull for 100 yards, and absolutely mandatory if you want to transition between nosepresses and nose slides.
This won't be easy to learn so maybe start with Zany's advice, which is enough to avoid the board starting to spin and throwing you in an edgecatch.

Detune front/rear edges if your board has them? Only thing I could think of that wasn't suggested yet.
