Default Board for butter

As the saying goes "It's not the board. Your riding sucks"

Harsh, but you don't need a particular board just for buttering(whether you are this years EVO or a Custon from 10years ago) Play on your board, learn how to bend your legs and where your weight needs to be and see what happens!

I still don't see why Ryan Knapton gets so much love on the internet.

was at A-BAY yesterday for the first outing of the year, not much to do beside butter. My buddy rides some 12 year old atlantis piece of shit, watching me butter (not well) my ET Classic he says "look" as he sort of wheelies to show me how stiff and unbutterable his board is. So I sez, I sez "lets switch". Turns out my ET is about 3x stiffer than his board, his shit was like a bowl of buttered noodles.

This really made him realize how far behind he is and how much practice and effort it takes.

Buttering unto itself is kinda ghey, imho, but you can learn alot about your riding and your board by doing it. I think of it like "you SHOULD be ABLE to butter, but just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD"

hurt myself worse buttering last year than any other crash. was almost at a complete stop at Echo, conditions were hard as fuck, and had alot of press going on. Board slipped and the massive amount of pop in the board caused me to charlie brown in olympic fashion (gave myself 9s!). Landed square on my shoulderblades, took all summer to heal, I can still feel a bunch of scar tissue and shit in there.

thats how i f'd up my leg last season. i dont what you call but i go into a tail with such an high angle that it sprays snow. anyways I was doing that and the tail of the board slipped forward under and bent my leg and caused a minor fracture.

to the OP. Yes of course a softer board will be easier to press, but there's no reason at all you can't do a lot on your SL. Try moving your hips in line with the snowboard over your front or back leg and see where and how it flexes the board. Keep your upper body upright while you do this. Also think of the progression you need to follow. Start with tail presses (riding straight and flat in snowboarding's version of a manual). Nose presses. Switch tail and nose press. When you are comfortable with those its not too difficult to get things sideways and or spinning as you butter your way around. Make sure your comfortable with flat-ground 180's in both directions.
Obviously find somewhere with a very gentle pitch to practice on...back to the easy terrain. This is fun stuff to work on when you're riding with people who are just beginning and need to practice on the greens. I think butters are fun, and teach you massive amounts of board and body control.

lmao.
Your boards fine, if anything butters on icey days is a little more difficult than on pow. but it doesn't really make a difference.

I wish someone would remake that video.... the quality of the picture, sound, and text intros are TERRIBLE. Tricks are neat and something I'd definitely like to see how far I could progress through this season though..
