Default Advanced Buttering tricks and tips? (So that I can be a ninja)

Are there any tutorials out there on advanced buttering moves? I'm aware of the simple tutorials on the internet like presses, pretzels, or 180 into presses, etc. However, what must I do to become a NINJA like those Jap dudes in "Masters of Ground"? I have a K2 WWW so the equipment is not the issue.

I think one of the most stylish looking things is a massive butter that just goes on and on and not with the nose or tail like a few inches off the ground. I'm talking close to a foot off the ground and get an odd angle going on it's beautiful. definitely going to try stepping up my buttering this winter

Default The panel game

One thing that opened alot of doors for me butterwise was to play the panel game. Basically, break your board into 4 "panels - Nose/Toeside, Nose/Heelside, Tail/Toeside and Tail/Heelside. The rules are simple, you can only keep one panel on the snow at a time and have to transition from one to another either by moving the board on the ground or with an air. It's a great way to get comfortable moving your weight around on the board, find balance points, and just play on greens when you are by yourself or riding with people that are still beginners.

You have to learn to master every aspect of your board. In addition to practicing butters all day long, I feel that it helps if you learn how to bomb down blacks and double blacks (if you can't already do so). You should be able do skidded turns, dynamic turns or whatever other kind of fancy turn there is. That will help you learn to control your board much better. Learn to hold presses in your basement? (but for the love of god, don't put these videos up on youtube) ohh and don't be afraid to fall a lot on the slopes. It helps if you ride with friends who like to butter as much as you so you aren't holding anyone back while they bomb down the slopes...

then nollie tail press 180 to your hearts content...

ohh and if you can't nose press properly, try learning how to do a switch tail press first
