How To Boardslide Street Style Features On A Snowboard


As you get better at jibbing you’re
gonna start to hit more street style features which require you to approach
from either the Frontside or the Backside. Our Balance Bar top piece is
perfect for simulating this. It gives you the feeling of what it’s like to move
your body over top of a feature and balance as if it was a rail. For the
approach of a street style feature you’re generally coming in at about
20 or 30 degrees as you Ollie on. The most common thing I see on a
Backside Boardslide is people connect with the rail and then slide off early
on the same side as they approached from. What this means is that you’re not
getting your weight up on top of the feature. If you freeze-frame this rider
you will see he never really got on top. If you’re having this problem try
getting more momentum up on top to the point where you may even be falling off
the other side.This is a great technique, because if you can fall off the other
side then all you have to do is find that middle ground by practicing the
feature more times. How you stop your momentum from going right off the other
side is with a very subtle angle of your board then, remaining with your weight on
top of the feature to slide the full length. This technique works the exact
same with the Frontside Boardslide. Coming in 20 or 30 degrees, it’s
very common to see people slide off early the same side as they approached
from. If you’re having that problem try to get completely off the other side
then work on finding that middle ground where your weight balances up on top of
the feature. This tutorial is filmed at Whistler Blackcomb. I’m Nev lapwood from Snowboard Addiction, our goal is to improve your riding!
