ground tricks - 29 snowboard ground tricks to learn

This video shows 29 ground tricks I'd like to learn next season:
YouTube - 29 snowboard ground tricks

I'm riding a Never Summer SL 155 and weigh about 160 lbs. I feel like I can't press the board as much as this video shows. Should I stick with the SL or try a different board?

Thanks

The SL is an all mountain freestyle board and slightly stiffer.. do these tricks on an EVO and you'll look like a pro. Not really necessary to get a dedicated stick for these, all doable on the SL but just a bit harder.

if you can afford it, get a softer board...it makes this stuff a lot more fun, and you can go longer with less effort...also adding to the fun factor

It's you not the board. Oh NOEZ I CANTZ BUTTAHZ! Seriously the SL isn't that stiff I rode a cambered, a r.c., and other variations and I never had an issue and I'm 5lbs more than you. People need to realize it's not the stick that lets them butter its knowing how to manipulate the board. In this day and age you'll rarely find a board you can't do what you want with.

you're probably right about "its you, not the board" but i'm wondering how true that is with 10 year old boards. my custom from 2000 is way too stiff to butter imo....its also very hard to pop a decent ollie. truly cannot wait for next season and a new board......anyone else riding on a 10 year old board?

I think my board is about five years old, and it doesn't have much flex. I've never ridden on any other board, so I have no clue what the difference is. Still working on buttering.

Is the SL flexible enough to safely do tail blocks?
