beunknown beunknown - so when I am trying to butter, I always end up turning. Any suggestions as to how to fix that. I'm not sure if it is just cause I don't have the proper stance or what

MadSLOOPYyo MadSLOOPYyo - NO MATTER WHAT BOARD YOU CAN BUTTER ON...SOME ARE JUST EASIER THAN OTHER. THE SOFTER THE BOARD THE MORE YOU CAN PRESS IT. IT IS MORE RECOMMENDED. PLUS THE HIGHER THE PRESS THE COOLER IT LOOKS. LOL

1298 days 4 hours 28 minutes ago
dougfagel dougfagel - Thanks for all the shout outs!! The best boards for buttering are soft and have pulled away contact points, such as a spooned nose and tail. Rocker boards also make it a bit easier to get into a deep press.
1299 days 2 hours 35 minutes ago
KhoiBoy KhoiBoy - Nice! Does it matter what board you use?
1302 days 15 hours 59 minutes ago

1353 days 3 hours 36 minutes ago
snowboardslider snowboardslider - I love butter, butters, buttering, whatever you call it. Butters really help when you come off of a jump with your board facing toward the trees. You can just land and lean toeside or heelside and spin to ride away.
