Default 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!

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.
