nosepress backside 180

From Snowboarder Mag, this week TJ Schneider shows us how to do a nosepress backside 180.

1. It’s always a little easier if you have a little more speed. Especially with flat rails.

2. Approach the rail as if you were going to do a 50-50, but land on the rail with your weight on your nose.

3. Positioning your body over your front foot will naturally lift your back foot off the rail.

4. Mid-way through the press you’ll want to start turning your shoulders as if you’re doing a backside spin.

5. At the end of the rail keep your shoulders turning while looking in the direction you want to spin and land.

6. Land fakie and ride away to the next rail.

Neverland by Absinthe

Romain de Marchi is one of my favorite snowboarder and to see all those riders in the Neverland that make me sick! Why do they have to show us all those f#$king awesome slopes when it is summer (at least on our side).
