Hey guys! Kevin here from SnowboardProCamp.
In this video I’m gonna teach you how to do Frontside 180’s. Frontside 180’s are a great beginner trick.
it was actually the very first trick that I learn on my snowboard. As soon as I could carve and ollie and ride switch, I was practicing frontside 180’s. It’s a great beginner trick because you
don’t need that much air to do it. You can see your take off and landing the entire time and it opens up the doors to a lot of other tricks. To start lets break down the Frontside 180 into three parts. The ride in, windup
and pop. For the front side 180 you need to come into the lip on your heel edge. Plan to do a toe turn before the jump, followed by a heel turn. So you arrive at the lip on your heels, with your snowboard pointed straight. You want to do a heel turn in because you’re continuing the 180 in the
same direction as the turn. It will also give you a solid platform to
pop and spin from. As you ride in, start to wind up for the
spin. Have your upper body facing back slightly, Then as you get to the lip of the jump rotate
your upper body forward. Keep your core stiff so your legs and snowboard follow. You only need a small amount of wind up and
rotation to get the front 180 around. Pop off your heels to get the 180 into the air. As you get to lip jump even
off both feet. This will keep you level in the air and set you up for a level landing a bit
on your toes. A level pop will also give you the time
in the air to get the 180 around. You can frist start practicing 180’s outside the park off the ground, up banks and off side hits. Work on the skills in the
180 by mastering your jumps, carving and
switch riding. Once you get comfortable with front side 180’s in the park, You can start experimenting with 180’s on boxes and Rails and spins in other directions. If you guys have any questions or if you have any tips for Frontside 180’s,
