OK, Just to be clear! I'm NOT
claiming to be some sort of flatland "Master!" It was my understanding that anything
, you did on the board while pressing the nose or the tail was considered "Buttering!" I asked around about the different names for various butter moves and was told "basically they're all just called Buttering!
" :icon_scratch: :dunno:
It wasn't until I started posting for download the Ryan tut's that I saw any
specific name given for any of these tricks!
Having said that,..
I can nose & tail press ALL
3 of my boards (...the Arbor included,) while riding straight, both switch & reg. I can do a tail press turn, and flat spins, front & backside. (or maybe that's reg. & switch? Dunno!) In fact, I catch an edge more often doing that
on my NS Proto, than I do with my Arbor! :dunno: Go figure! (I did learn the move on my Arbor first, before I got the Proto, so?)
I was working on Front Side Nose rolls near the end of last season! I am nowhere near
as smooth or fast as Ryan, But, I can
complete the maneuver, again, both reg. and switch!
This was why I agreed with the other posters that the fault was probably less likely the board, and more likely his execution! Of course, I could be wrong!
In which case, OP,... Never mind me!
