How To Tail Press Frontside 180 Out On A Snowboard


For the tail press front one, make sure
you’re good at 50/50 front ones and tail presses. A tail press front one is the
combination of these two tricks. It can also be called a five-o front one which
is what skateboarders call it. You can simulate the trick on snow by doing a
tail butter front one. This buttering trick uses the exact same physical
movement, however doing this on boxes and rails requires precise timing. Start with
a small easy box, make sure the tail of your board is pressed completely flat
with a feature and don’t use any edge. The idea is to keep your board aligned
in the same direction as the jib feature and only spin out at the end.
Step it up to different types of rails and bigger features as you feel
comfortable. Many riders actually find it easier to do a small nollie into this
trick, which can help for holding the press. When you ollie in it’s common to slap
your board into a brief 50/50 on the feature before locking into your tail
press. While pressed the nose of your board only needs to be 10 centimeters or
4 inches off the ground to look stylish. The frontside 180 off uses counter
rotation so your position at the end of the jib feature is critical for the 180
out. If your upper body is twisted open perpendicular to your board, then it would
be easy to stomp the counter-rotated front 1 off the end. You can practice this body positioning
technique on a jib board and balance bar all year round. The better you can do it
here the easier it’ll be on the mountain. You’re riding with Nev Lapwood and Mikey Barton
