Good Day..

So I just bought Sierra Stunt Snowboard 2010 ...I really want to get into flatland tricks, butters, presses etc...I am knew to this I usually ride all Mt... where do you recommend binding set up I figure a wide stance?? And as far as doing butters etc are their any hints or tips??? Or is it basically having a soft board,,leaning forward and backward?? thanks

Keep in mind, as with most things on the mountain, you can do pretty much anything on any board, it is more a matter of learning the techniques. I learned to butter on my Palmer Liberty, which is pretty stiff, and there may be benefits to learning a new skill on a board you know well already, since you are comfortable with your board and set up. Just a thought.

^^^ no. I learned buttering on a Burton custom, its not the easiest but there are stiffer boards for sure. I would say the stiffness has more to do with ease of butters than camber but I've heard it helps...
