Default build a drop ramp and jib setup

I built a 7' platform/drop in ramp and 14' jib setup.....
if you use hdpe lattice on the drop and astroturf on the lip, you
can get good speed/slide w/soap and water. Use plastic tarp at the end of the jib to land on instead of grass.
It works dope if you set it up right and you can practice
YEAR ROUND!
youtube "backyard summer snowboarding" to get ideas....
peace

@Shelbybeck

A friend of mine is taking that idea one step further. We're going to be giving it a thorough test on Sunday.

I would also get in the gym and work out. The stronger you are the easier all of these tricks will come. The more flexible you are the more you can poke out your grabs and add style to your game. Balance boards are always good to get on also. I also put my board on and practice every single grab possible. Hope that helps a little. Playing on the grass is a killer way to gain muscle memory, but it is hard to learn anything new. JonT

I'm going to have to second this one. Probably the most important thing for you to do right now.
