Default Need help with Nose Rolls

First post here but i've been reading a lot of tips from this forum. I recently started trying to get these down. I can do the front side nose roll but i can't do it without doing the nollie out. how can i do the nose roll with out launching myself in the air.

i will ride down on my heel edge (regular), nose press and swing my back hip to the front. everytime i launch myself into the air. i know it's a great little tick to have in the bag, but kind of annoying when i want to do a nice small smooth nose roll.

any help is appreciated and thank you in advance for your help.

Welcome to the forum.. I'm going to assume you mean a 180 butter? ... or is a nose roll when you use upper body? never heard of it .... practice presses... A LOT.. on nose and tail.. basically to do what I think you do is pull the press.. so in this case go into a nose press and as you are turn your head and shoulders (hur hur hur) the direction you want to spin and then swing that leg out like a damn dancer.

thanks blind for the quick response.

YouTube - Snowboard tricks - Nose Roll 180 Frontside S-KP

the vid has a pretty long intro, the trick is at 0:25. i can get the board around but instead of the nose sticking to the ground, i keep nollieing out of the press. am i throwing my body to hard and causing me to launch in the air?

Sounds like you may not be locking in on the press. Keep your lead foot flexed, like you're doing a nose press, shift your weight toward the front of your board and turn your shoulders in the direction you want to spin. Thats what I do for nose rolls.

Like Blind said, practice pressing alot!

I want to get to the point to where I can really slow the rotation down and hold a deep press throughout.

Yeah that's what I thought it could be... unlike butters "nose rolls" are initiated mostly with upper body movement.. you are pushing a nose press while simultaneously throwing your shoulders around and swinging that leg... Honestly if you practice taking it a little bit more slowly you'll really dial it in without doing the nollie... just remember to keep all of your weight on that front leg so it doesn't pop up...

I think it took me about an hour to learn.. but I didn't realize it was a real trick I was just practicing the motion for trying a full butter hahaha... well hell what a trick to have... once you get it down the way you're trying you should be able to do it any direction.. I can do them FS/BS switch FS/BS
