How to Backside Boardslide – Snowboarding Tricks Goofy


What’s up guys? Kevin here from SnowboardProCamp. In this video I’ve got some tips for doing backside boardslides. Backside boardslides are really fun trick and one of the first tricks you should learn in the park. To make learning this trick
easy I’m going to break down each part of the trick, show you how to
practice this trick outside the park and how to avoid the most common
mistakes that people make. To start let’s break down the Backside Boardslide into
three parts. The approach, on the box and landing. As you approach for the boardslide, you want to have a bit of speed and be coming at
the box in a straight line. Do one or two speed checks with your snowboard on the approach
to set your speed. Give yourself lots a space to point your
snowboards straight and flat, with a bit more weight on your toe edge. As you get onto the box you want to get
your snowboard sideways and get your weight centered. To get your
snowboard sideways you need to do two things. Turn your hips
and legs forward as your upper body and arms turned
backwards. This twisting motion will get your snowboard sideways and lock in the boardslide. To keep your
weight centered bend your knees and reach your front
hand down, towards the snow. For the landing you want to come off the end of the box. Land solid
and ride away clean. Come out of the boardslide by untwisting your body. Bend your knees to absorb the landing. Then plan to do a few turns to ride it
out. The most important tip is to first
practice backside boardslides outside the park. Find a mellow run Where you can practice twisting your body into
the boardslide position. You can safely practice this on the snow and train your body until the
movement is automatic. Then when you are ready for the park, find
an easy feature that you’re already comfortable doing
5050’s on. The most common mistake people make, is
they have too much weight over their heel edge. This will cause you to slide out onto
your butt. Keep your knees bent and your front hand reaching down so
your weight stays forward and more centered over your snowboard.
Put all these tips together so you can nail your backside boardslides. If you guys have any questions or if you
guys have any tips for boardslides, you can leave them in the comment box.
Thanks for watching and I’ll see you in the next video!

    Thanks for vid Kevin
    why didn't you say about jib-tube?
    its really simple figure for my opinion and it really usefull to understand how to keep you weight right upon sliding surface
    many times watched that if weight centre situates not right between knees, starts to rotate you and funny boardslide became a not funny controlless 180 tailpress then BAM! you in the snow=)))
    so please add tips about tubes in your jibbing lessons
    thx alot one more time!
    cheers

  15. Cade Smith says:

    Nice video, im just confused a bit. I may be overthinking this but i ride goofy and it seems this is "frontside" when riding up to the rail you turn frontwards and ride forward while boardsliding. Idk it just looks frontside.

  16. Cade Smith says:

    In reguard to that last comment, i think i know why its backside. If your back is going into the spin thats backside right? So you're basically just halfway spinning backside but sliding forwards on the rail making it a boardslide. 

  17. danny yo says:

    hey Kevin, is there a certain part on the base of my board i should slide on during a boardslide?

  18. Davide Corona says:

    Great video! Excuse but the toes should be well fixed to the ground as practical the backside boardslide?

  19. xAstroBoo says:

    Thank you so much! I couldn't do a backside but I could do a front side! Now I can and I will look forward to using it more!

  22. NyX says:

    Can you do this same video except how to do it on a rail not a box that's not ride on

  23. Matt Kingsley says:

    I skateboard and so im used to ollieing onto boxes , is it better to pop by sucking up my legs or to ollie because when i try to ollie i find that my weight is to far back and i end up slipping out onto my butt.

  24. X v M says:

    I've been struggling with my goofy backside-to-buttside board slide . Thank you so much for the "front hand down" tip! I do think this will be a game-changer for me.

  25. Thomas Peterson says:

    I am a beginner at boardsliding. I want to do this but I am afraid that the carving metal part of the snowboard will stop my motion when it encounters the black gum. Is this something that can happen?

  26. spencer vance says:

    I was putting to much weight on my heel edge.

  27. connor mackenzie says:

    I have a question. I am a solid intermediate rider and can 50-50 most boxes and rails. For the life of me I cannot board slide, I keep falling backwards off my heels. I have watched this over and over and tried the hand to the ground and everything. Any other tips that could help?? Im trying to get this down by the end of this season. Thanks for your time!!

  28. Reid Shriver says:

    Just commenting to say that this video certainly helped me! I got my first back boardslide yesterday and I was so happy. Thank you!
