Snowboarding tricks are always fun to watch, isn’t it? But they are not so easy to pull off as they seem like. You may feel the urge to hit the snow and experience the adrenaline rush all by yourself. But if you have decided to try some tricks yourself, remember to pick the tricks that are fit for beginners. Join a snowboard camp and learn the tricks, practice those till you have mastered them and then only, you are ready to move to the more complicated ones.

It is very important that you must learn the basic tricks first and then you must move to complicated ones. Most of the beginners’ courses offered by a snowboard camp may involve the following basic tricks and techniques.

The aerial tricks

Among the aerial tricks, here are some of the common ones that you must learn:

Air to Fakie: This trick needs you to turn 180 degrees in the air and again riding back after the turn. This kind of snowboarding trick is actually helpful in preparing you to move in the air. Air to Fakie also gives you the basic knowledge about how it feels in air tricks.

Ollies: One of the most common jumps, an ollie is the one in which a jump is done with the help of the tail of the snowboard which acts as a spring. This is one of the basic steps to many of the aerial tricks. Moreover, this trick also helps you when you need to jump over little barriers.

The surface tricks

Butters: This is a very important and exciting ground trick that involves making a set of 360-degree turns. You can do it on slopes where you can build up the moves and speed. Plus, you can also include many other snowboarding skills in this trick.

Wheelies: When you do a wheelie, you ride your snowboard with one tip of the snowboard in the air. In this trick, you need to maintain your balance when you ride with just one end of your board. When you learn to develop the technique and power to lift the tail or nose of your snowboard, you will be preparing yourself for more complicated tricks.

Halfpipe Tricks: Halfpipe is nothing but a U-shaped bowl that allow riders to move from one wall to the other by making snowboarding tricks and jumps on each of the switch. Originally, halfpipe was first developed in skateboarding, but has now shifted completely to snowboarding.

Backside 720: Backside 720 is one of the most developed tricks that you can do on a halfpipe. You can spin two times in the air when you perform this trick. But before you do this trick, you must make sure that you have brushed up your aerial movements properly and then try this trick.

Nose and Tail Rolls: You can do a tail and nose roll by spinning either of the nose or tail of the board some 180 degrees, thereby changing your posture. This is somewhat similar to wheelie but here, you need to include a 180 degree turn to it. So, it is very important that you must know a wheelie first before you do this trick.

Alley Oops: You have to turn some 180 degrees going uphill when you do this trick.

When you do snowboarding tricks, make sure you are keeping the safety factor in mind. You can get all the tips and required guidance from an experienced instructor in a summer snowboarding camp. So, make the most of your winter fun and have an exciting experience.
