Want to improve butters. (..64 yo buttering vid. Has me shamed!)
After watching Serious Cat's video post of that 64 Yo codger buttering the fuck outta his board, I got to wondering. I've been working on the same thing this season and I noticed It looks to me like this guy's got one hell of a wide stance on that board. I was wondering if widening my stance would help me improve my butters over all?
On my 3 boards I run my stance's between 21-1/2 in. To 23-3/4. The narrowest stance oddly enough is on my longest, stiffest board. My Arbor 163W.
I'm running 23-1/2 & 23-3/4 respectively on my RGR 159cm and NS Proto CT 157. I've been doing pretty good but I still have some trouble with balance or over pressing and having the board shooting out from underneath me.
Not to mention my pressed nose n tail spins are nowhere near as smooth or fluid as his appear to be on the vid. He's almost got a Ti Chi looking body position when he spins.
Just wondering if part of my problem might be my comparatively narrower stance? (...I've have the SA Vid tutorials on butters and regularly refer to them btw!)
