How To Tailblock: Trick Tip With Snowboarder Chris Beresford

How To Tailblock: Trick Tip With Snowboarder Chris Beresford

Welcome to this episode of The Trick here on Network A. Today we are going to meet up with multi-tasker, pro snowboarder and owner of Dang Shades, Chris Beresford is going to be teaching us that trick right there, the tail block. Let’s go find that guy. Prepares for a good looking blocks out there. It seems like such a simple trick, but how many parts would you say that it has?
There is three basic parts: the ride-in, the block, and the pop-out. Let’s check out the first break it down for us, the ride-in. So part one, you are going to pick a point on a bank. You are going to ride in so you barely reach that point. That is the toe edge to that point and that is where part two comes in. So, step two this is where you are poppping and you are going front side 80, digging your tail in. If you do not dig it in, your board is going to slip out side to side. You really want to make sure that tail is dug in. At that point, you can really grab the nose and put all your weight on your back leg and that is when step three comes in. the third and final step is when your tail is really dug in there, load it up. You have to think of it like a diving board. this is what allows you to get that nice spring out and then that’s when you are ready to spray your buddies if they are up above you when you are doing the block. Then at that point, you are going to bend your knees and pop out and ride away. Alright Chris, now that we have been through all of the different steps, what is the one trick to the trick with the tailblock? What do you think the secret to just making it click for you is? I think the secret is overdoing the tailblock where you actually flip over and you fall. It’s simple and does not hurt. So that commitment.
You have to commit to it. Takes a few bails but there is going to be that time when you think you are going to fall but you just hold it straight up and you can pop right in. Well that is the trick to the trick. Commitment like everything in life. Thank
you for watching the tailblocks. Chris Beresford here on Network A. Chris, thanks for stopping by. Now go out to your home mountain or patch of snow, learn these things, film them, share them with us. We will see you next time on The Trick

    It is better than the snow that we have in the UK right now, which is zero, so no, the snow is not shitty, it is snow and all snow is good to ride on when you have none.
