How to Snowboard Tips: Frontside 360
With Austen Sweetin
From the November 2012 Issue of TransWorld SNOWboarding
Approach: Stay pretty flat-based so that when you ollie you can get the most pop. Bend your knees and lean to your heel edge.
Takeoff: Spring load your legs to get maximum pop off the lip. Take off of your heels and look over your heelside shoulder to start the rotation.
Maneuver: Grabbing frontside allows you to stay squared up for the landing. When you come around 270, spot your landing and let go of your grab.
Landing: On a park jump you want to stay centered, but in pow you want to land with a strong back leg to power through the powder.
