these are for relatively simple maneuvers but when put together stay off for hours days even years of fun on your snowboard and it'll really get you playing with your snowboard messing around and learning lots of new tricks we're gonna start off with nose presses and tail presses the best way to get into a press either nose or tail so by getting low on your board and really using your ankles knees and hips to get the press you don't want to just lean over with your head and shoulders standing really tall it'll be hard to get a nice high press and you're gonna have trouble keeping balance I think about getting low and almost sitting on top of my bindings bending one knee and really straightening out the other one and then if I really want to get my board pressed I don't worry too much about lifting up my foot as much as pressing down on the other one if you feel comfortable standing there balance see if you can hop from one to the other if you're feeling really confident see if you can do a tail press nose grab try them going down a cat track pressing on the tail and then the nose once you're comfortable with that try them side slipping going from nose to tail and back again once you get comfortable with the nose press and tail press all these and nollies are much easier once you're in that nose press or tail press position you're right in the spot for a good Ollie or nollie you can go from that press nose or tail jump off that leg right into the air and there's your Ollie or nollie when I'm doing all these or nollies once again I'm not trying to move my head and shoulders too much that's where the bulk of my weight is so I want to keep it steady I'm gonna move from nose to tail or vice versa by getting my lower joints to move underneath me from here combined with getting a little lower I can get in a perfect position to spring off my tail or nose and then by exploding off of that foot I can get myself up into the air I'm really using the Flex of my board to spring me up as high as I can go and don't forget to get your shoulders involved as well your shoulders are really dictate where your snowboard is going so you might as well get them going where you want your snowboard to go after you spring up don't forget to absorb your legs up nice and evenly so you can land equally on both feet once again practice always somewhere flat where you're not moving and once you get comfortable take it to the hill preferably somewhere gentle where you're not gonna pick up too much speed when you're all laying down the cat track try and keep a flat base it's gonna give you more surface area to take off and land on that's gonna give you a little bit more balance once you've done a few Ollie's and Ollie's in the cat track also try them side slipping down the slope or traversing we're gonna put this into all kinds of different scenarios so it's important being comfortable with all these anomalies in all kinds of different situations our third move is gonna be spinning and we're gonna keep the spinning part pretty simple and just do it on the hill we're not gonna need any jumps or air or anything like that we're just gonna spin on the slope so you can start these spins exactly like how you'd start a turn by getting your head shoulders and hips to rotate the important part when spinning on the slope is that you make sure your heads looking up over your shoulder continuously you want to look all the way around until you see back to where you started you might find you want to look down or underneath your arm as you're spinning this is just gonna throw off your balance and make it awkward to get a smooth spin keeping your head up looking over your shoulders is the ideal way to have a nice smooth spin you can start by doing 360s from a side slip starting and finishing in the same place do it both front side and back side to get comfortable both ways after you've done a few side slipping try them going straight down the hill once again find a slope that's not too steep so you're not going to pick up too much speed after you get 360s dialed and you're pretty comfortable doing them nice and smoothly around try spinning as much as you can do a seven ten twelve fourteen go until you get dizzy and fall over once you've fallen over regain your consciousness again I try going the other way just unwind yourself the last move we're going to use is the shifty shifty czar great all over the place they work really well when you're riding Park because they're a great way to scrub speed without changing your trajectory like a turn would they also just add a little bit of spice into lots of maneuvers the shifty is simply a counter rotated movement where your upper body and lower body go opposite directions I think about putting my hands over my tail when I do a frontside shifty and over my nose when I do a backside shifty you should feel a bunch of tension in your torso and that's what you're going to use to pop your board back and forth once you get comfortable doing Shifty's play with them a little bit more do them down the hill both sides slipping and going straight down the hill and see how big you can make them 90 degrees isn't a stopping point 90 degrees is a great place to start see if you can over shifty and do a full 180 and bring it back again once you've got these four moves mastered or at least you're starting to feel comfortable with them it's time to start playing with them and introducing them to one another it's time to put them into all kinds of different combinations and I'm going to show you a few of these combinations right now we'll start simply and then build it up another one you can do from spinning is just get that spin going like you were before and then just put one of your legs underneath you just like we were doing when we were pressing this will create a nice nose butter or tail butter nose rolls and tail rolls are a great way to move from switch to regular and back again and they look really good when you're doing it a good step by step to introduce nose rolls and tail rolls you could simply start rotating 180s forwards and backwards on the snow and then just add a little bit of a press in the middle of it simply by putting one of your legs underneath your body from there you'll slowly get comfortable rotating with one end of the board in the air if that starts to get too easy do a bit of a pop out of it we already know how to ollie so you know exactly how that feels you might even be surprised to notice you spin even more than a 180 you might do a nose roll and end up coming around a full 360 that's not a bad thing you're just adding to your bag of tricks when you're experimenting use as few or these moves as you can there's no wrong way to do them and there's an endless amount of tricks that you can learn do a few simple ones and then move into more and more complex maneuvers try adding spins into presses throw a little bit of a shifty in there and then pop out of it there's really no right or wrong way to do this and you're only limited by your own imagination learn tricks off your friends and show them tricks that you've come up with I'm Duncan mainland this is snowboard addiction and our goal is to improve your riding

    This is great advice. I’ve been boarding for years, but I think I might still go back and practice these basics to clean up my style.

    Is the shape (symmetrical, non symmetrical) of the board and the setting of bindings very important when performing tricks?

    I got a concussion snowboarding last weekend and now I am in the hospital, that day was completely erased from my memory. It’s a shame that I don’t even remember whether I learned how to do all the ollies and nollies properly. I will have to learn to do them again
