How to 270 into boxes and rails – (Regular) Snowboard Tricks


Hi this is Nev Lapwood from
Snowboard Addiction We’re at Whistler Blackcomb and this tutorial
is on how to 270 onto boxes. On a simple box with a straight approach you
can do either a frontside 270 on or a backside 270 on. We cover these both in this tutorial.
270s on are advanced tricks so you should already be very confident with a large variety
of jibbing tricks before learning these. Frontside 270 Movement Start by jumping the movement with
your board off. You must be able to easily do front 3s. This is more or less the same
kind of movement as initiating a frontside 270. Wind up, jump a frontside 270, try to
pause your rotation while you imagine the slide, then do another 90 degree turn off
the end to land. A balance bar gives you the next level where
you actually have to balance as you land on the feature. Start by jumping a frontside
180 on, then a 180 off. When you’re feeling confident, jump in the same way as if you’re
going to 180 on but with some extra effort to get a 270. Practicing this on a balance
bar makes it feel a lot more realistic. It will help you to develop the muscles in your
legs required to stomp this trick. The more you practice it here, the more easily you’ll
be able to learn this on a real feature. On snow you can practice jumping 270s while
riding a gentle slope. Approach on your heel edge, wind up, jump a 270 and pretend you’re
sliding a box. This helps to get the feeling of jumping the 270 with the weight of your
whole snowboard on your feet. The main difference here is that when jumping 270s on snow you
must land using your toe edge where as when landing on a box, it’s essential to land
with a perfectly flat base.
