Any special board setups for these tricks?
 
Hello everybody. Not sure if this thread is in the right category. Would the mods please kindly move it to some correct section in the forum if there is a more appropriate category.

The following is a youtube link:
ground tricks snowboard 2011-2012
It's about 3 minutes long and I hope its length won't make it too boring for people here.

First of all I think the person in the video was very good and I declare I could not do any of the things he displayed.

Could anyone tell me what special board setups are needed to facilitate those tricks (ollies, ollie spins, 360 and 540 ... not off some jumps)?

I was wondering if a shorter board, or if a good portion of the board edge was detuned would help. Obviously I could not tell from the video and my assumptions could be entirely wrong.

Anyway, anybody who might know, please kindly enlighten. A big word of THANKS in advance. Cheers.

It's called knowing how to ride.

By far the Gayest way to perform tricks, but if you insist. No, there is no special board needed, even though i dislike that style this is a pretty sick video of it. I like how calming the music is.

BurtonAvenger. Thanks.

blunted_nose many thanks. Oh I have watched your recommended video ages ago. It's actually one of the videos I have bookmarked in my pc haha. He is so fluid isn't he? So I will take it that technique is all that's required, and there is no special board setup that would help. Cheers blunted_nose.

Pretty much this. A shorter, rockered, softer board will help, but some people can just fuckin' ride. :dunno:

Some of these fools are just damn good.

Even though some may recomend a softer, rockered board, the guy in the video does it with a burton custom x. Very stiff board not meant to butter around. This kind of boarding you can practice at home, in your basment. All you need is carpet, then just put on the snowboard and start pressing your nose and tail. You can try to spin 180 degrees and land on your nose or tail, combos from there on. It can be a fun thingy to do when on a flat track just cruizing with friends, some make art out of it.

i always found interesting at how many japanese riders you see doing this, when they have arguablly the best snow conditions. I would be rather rding a shallow tail pow stick in a foot of pow, but thats me.

I change my stance if Im going to do a 180, then I change it again for a 360.

ig88 09-18-2012 04:44 AM

blunted_nose, thanks. In that case I will practice on the carpet at home. I guess doing it a hundred times at home, has to make it easier when trying it out on the snow for the very first time.
There are actually tons of J guys doing board tricks on youtube but English searches normally would not return many Japanese titled videos if at all.
What's pow?

Thanks ETM. Would love to read more elaborations from you regarding your 180 and 360.

For doing a 180 I prefer a stance of 15-15 at 22" on a burton ICS board but for a 360 I change my bindings to 12-18 at 20" on a 4 hole pattern board. Try it some time.
