How to Backside Boardslide – Snowboarding Tricks Regular


What’s up guys? Kevin here from SnowboardProCamp. In
this video I’ve got some tips for doing Backside Boardslides. Backside boardslides are a 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 backside 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 you snowboard on the approach
to set your speed. Give yourself lots a space to point your
snowboard 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 turn
backwards. This twisting motion will get your snowboard sideways and lock in the backside 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 backside 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
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.

    When you are about to get on the box do you want to land straight and then turn your board or do you want to land already in the sideways position???

  12. Joximus ART says:

    Thanks for the awesome tips all of you guys from SPC.I watched every one of your videos and I can't wait for winter to come.We are getting a snowpark, here on a mountain where I live, for the first time this year and I'm going to put to practice what I have learned from your videos.

  14. Cali Lowe says:

    I love your videos! How to try something before going to the park is especially helpful so I don't embarrass myself quite as often. Can you make a video on doing spins off a box or pipe? 180/360?

  15. Tucker Anson says:

    if your leaning on your toe edge to much will your boards edge get caught and you fall forward.

  16. Vic Landry says:

    is there a difference between goofie and regular

  17. yallen2010 says:

    this video is very descriptive and easy to follow. Slowing the video down allows me to  better see where my body should be going into and getting out of the jump which is what i was looking for. Thanks SPC alot for your help. This snowboarding season is going to be the year I start landing tricks

  18. acubehack says:

    I can do a backside boardslide easy on a box but I'm looking for help on rails

  19. Miles Garland says:

    do you keep your board flat

  20. Nathan Boyer says:

    All your videos have you turn after you already start a 50-50.  Is that easier than jumping and rotating 90 degrees before landing on the box?

  21. chad johnson says:

    so thats a regular boardside

  22. Connor Brala says:

    cool thx

  23. Yagerbomb says:

    Yea I can confirm that it is much better to keep your weight centered, my butt hurts very bad from hitting a bit to many logs / boxes

  24. sk8boardingful says:

    going to the alps next week and your vids are giving me loads of ideas to try. can't wait to try this grind! keep the top quality tutorials coming man!

  25. Axel Skördeman says:

    Is it important to till the toeside a lil'bit upwards so you dont fall forward or should it all be flat? 😉

  27. Robert Teepell says:

    How do you even consider this a back board? 1.You approach the fucking thing straight on… 2.you don't even backslide, you're front sliding…

  28. kmb9522 says:

    Thanks for the vids man. They help a ton.

  29. MLG Mason says:

    Can you make a video of how for your stance has to be

  30. Brady Hill says:

    Do you lift up your toes at all?

  31. jan zlámal says:

    nice, will try this season. I have never tried any freestyle, even oliie not ( it took me a lot time to learn how to ride on slopes- with weight on front leng,arm in the line with snowboard). But rigders with better skills told me that to learn nice turns is most difficult, than after that progress is pretty quick. Do you agree? 

  32. Lavish says:

    Is snowboarding just like skateboarding, cause I can boardslide and 50-50 on a skateboard, so will I be able to transfer this to snowboarding?

  33. Timur Kussainov says:

    am i soppoused to lean back words, for wards or not at all?

  34. Timur Kussainov says:

    my problem with snowboarding is that i cant land most jump's not because i am afraid or i dont have good legs, it's because i cant balance my self when landing, how should i work on to improving that skill? thx

  35. Sarah Morgan says:

    I'm always afraid I will catch my edge on the box should I use my back edge on the box? And for Frontside Boardslide use the front edge on the box or not at all?

  36. Sarah Beccari says:

    Awesome advice thank you!!

  46. Samson Scholten says:
