How to Do Snowboard Tricks at the Park : How to do a Buttercup on a Snowboard


MATT VANSTEENIS: Hi. My name is Mat Vansteenis
on behalf of Expert Village. Today we’re going to learn how to snowboard the terrain park
here at beautiful Mt. Brighton in Brighton, Michigan. Okay, so now we’re going to talk
about how to do butters or some people call them buttercups. This is a really, really
fun trick. So we do it off the nose, so you get moving kinda quick. And you’re going to
start, like I like to 180 in the mind, or you can start by just lifting your nose up,
keep your weight up on your nose and you start turning with your shoulders. So as you turn
with your shoulders you’re going to start spinning on the ground. You can add a whole
bunch of different variations to this like 180s and 360s and this is just a really, really
fun trick when you go into like flat ground or if you’re on your way to the park or back
to the lift or whatever. So stay up on the nose and spin your shoulders.

    is it easy to break the tail?

  4. John Bochicchio says:

    no, boards are flexible.

  5. Matt Boland says:

    what's up with the sunglasses?

  6. cooliogoodMuzic2 says:

    yea, i dont recommend doing this unless u have a plastic board. u can pick em up at any starbucks cafe. i've snapped 12 boards doing this.

  7. Tom King says:

    Thats why burton, Rome and K2 boards are like the best boards out there.

  8. A Beyfort says:

    man butters are ezzzz u wont catch ur edge if u are not retarted:D

  9. Andrew Toppin says:

    @TrollinTheWorld After a while (there's no way to really describe is) it sorta feels natural, and instead of being hard fast movements it feels smooth and slow.

  10. Tom King says:

    Yeah I heard DC has really good park boards.

  11. Brett Nimphius says:

    yea so you were on your tail the whole time.

  12. flyersfan993 says:

    one day i looked down at my tail and noticed i had a huge crack all the way across the tail. i have no idea how it happened, but i had to buy the second brand new board of the season hahaha.

  13. Tom King says:

    Who says K2 sucks. It's like the best f**king board brand out there. Plus there are many good board brands out there that are really good. So I don't know why ppl are saying that a well known good board brand (K2,Rome,Ride,Burton. example) sucks. That is also for you XxWaLsToNxX.

  14. xXxKlickxXx says:

    @futubaKIKS

    best boards are from burton an nitro not from k2^^
    good skis are from k2 but not boards

  15. Tom King says:

    I heard that Burton boards break really easily. Nitro boards are awesome to, but what about others like Atomic, Lib tech and Forum. Those brands are kick ass to.

  16. WAMONT says:

  35. JoshWisoff says:

    i messed up my shoulder on a butter last season. as soon as i started falling i knew it too. a quick heads up: make sure you keep your arms in front of you so if you do fall back you dont have time to catch yourself if you instinctively do it, that being a major noob fail on my part.

  36. bimmersdreamers says:

    once i did this 10 times i puked into the snow, and the snow looked like butter.

  65. andres russo says:

    they should call it butter knife its kinda better but still gay

  66. Aw_some says:

    358 k views … wow that is a lot of time wasted..

  67. snowboarder4life67 says:

    wow. seriously? obviously its a different guy say the intro. and yes, he probably is gay. so stop saying it in every comment you immature 5th graders who think it is cool and funny to call people gay a lot just so that they make sure people know that they aren't gay. But for your info, a recent study showed that 90% pf homo-phobics are actually gay , they just don't act like it because they don't want people to know. i'm not gay, i'm just mature.
