You can only start to learn snowboarding tricks once you have a bit more experience on your board. If this is your first time doing any tricks you should just stick to the basics for now. With practice and patience you can improve and get every bit as good as the pros out there but this will take some hard work. There are also some easier tricks that you can get started with and learn in no time at all.
Of the three one of the easiest to perform is the grab. Although this is one of the easiest tricks to do it can look really cool if you go off a huge jump and get lots of air. You can only use one hand if you want, but make sure either way that you give yourself time to take your hands out from under the board before you land. The more air you are able to get the longer you can hold the board before landing and the cooler the trick will look.
Another popular trick is the Ollie. This is a trick that is done in skateboarding as well as snowboarding and which is really simple. As you are going down a gentle slope, at least for practicing, you want to start to shift all of the weight onto your back foot. As you do this you want to pull up the nose of your board so it is in the air.
The board should be centered below you the entire time, otherwise you are going to end up unbalanced and fall off. If the board is off center you are going to land off balance and probably end up falling over. The wheelie is the third most basic trick in snowboarding. You start this move off pretty much the same way, only there is no jumping involved.
For this trick you need to maintain your balance and remember to ride only one side of the board. The only difference is that you do not jump up for a wheelie and instead you just go back to the first position after the nose of your board is up in the air. These are just a few of the most basic snowboarding tricks. Snowboarding tricks can be a lot of fun but if you are not safe and especially if you are not doing them right, they can also be dangerous.
