Buttering with Ride Highlife - possible?
 
Hey guys. I just started picking up switch last month and was hoping to learn some cool ways to switch sides of the board.

I tried buttering on my nose for an hour the other day but could not for the love of god, get the board to flex. I have an extremely stiff board - a Ride Highlife (161).

Do I just suck at this or is it impossible given my board? I've never buttered in my life so I don't know if its me or I'm using the wrong equipment (it could totally be me!) .

Thanks guys.

i used to ride a highlife but there pretty stiff boards so buttering will be a bit harder. But i don't think it would be impossible just little easier on a kink or flex board.

Yeah, that's what happens to me. I really struggle to get up on the board. The thing barely flexes!

i buttered with mine... once. Im sure you can butter with almost any board its just not all that easy.

YOu can butter on anything. Stop sucking and over analyzing shit and just ride.

As BA said you canbutter with anything if you want to, hell look at this guy on a customX

You can for sure butter on anything. Just keep in mind with a stuff board you won't get the flex in the nose as much. Adjust to a more Bowed butter, with the board more planed out than kinked

I think it's way harder.

Yeah everyone knows ryan.

Custom x isn't actually that stiff. I've ridden one for a day at mammoth.

I actually got a turn today on my board but the clearance is like less than an inch.
