Default Any tricks to try to wait for the season to start?

I'm pretty bored with my board lying around, so I decided to strap it on today. I still have my front side and backside 360s down and my ollies get a lot of air. I can also butter very well. Is there anything I can learn while I wait for the season to start? I only have access to a flat grass field so are there any tricks I can try cranking out on the grass?

Do some butters and presses on the carpet. Try to stick some tail blocks. Record it, post it on youtube and share your results here.

Good idea. But I've been buttering for a while now so it comes pretty easily. I can tail block but I never tried it on grass due to fear of snapping my board. Would tail blocks on grass usually snap a board?

No, they're no different than a tail block on snow. You tail will be suspended against a solid plane. Make sure to block into an incline or it's nearly impossible and could fuck your legs up.

Make sure to put it on YouTube.

Yeah, I'll try to find a hill. I only have a field in my backyard right now so I was thinking of how to tail block on flat ground.

id go for some switch backside double cork 12's for good measure, gotta get one up on the shredder groms


really though, theres not much you can learn on grass. go skate and get comfortable riding, or riding switch or whatever it is you want to learn

You will not snap a board doing tailblock on grass unless you are fatter than me or your board is a piece of shit.

Lol @ snapping board comments... no way, unless it's a total POS! I do tail blocks in my sleeps (sometimes literally so) and on any type of surface - they are super easy and very fun/stylish.
And btw... how can you butter when you aren't moving?!?! I'd like to see some vids of someone buttering with power at speed, none of this crappy 10mph spinning down a green cat track crap So many people can butter, but 99% of them look ghay.

I have a dh2 from 2010/2011. It's pretty stiff, but I'm pretty light. Agreed with the buttering comments. I hate it even more when people do it slowly right in front of you. You can practice holding the butters. Not really in skill, but muscle control. It gets pretty tiring after two minutes.
