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

2301 days 4 hours 33 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.
2302 days 2 hours 40 minutes ago
KhoiBoy KhoiBoy - Nice! Does it matter what board you use?
2305 days 16 hours 4 minutes ago

2356 days 3 hours 41 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.
