6 Basic Halfpipe Tricks to Learn (Once You’ve Mustered up the Courage to Get Air Out of it…)

If you can do a frontside 180 off your toeside edge on a kicker, or off a side hit, chances are you’ll be able to do a frontside 360 in the pipe. The two tricks feel pretty similar and in both you’ll be landing switch (it’s a little hard to get your head around at first but watch the video of James Foster doing one above and you should be able to figure it out).

Again, you wanna be approaching the toeside wall as if you were going to do a frontside air but instead of keeping your shoulder lined up with your board when you leave the lip, this time rotate your head and lead shoulder a little more to initiate the 360.

The nice thing about frontside 360s is that you can pretty much spot your landing for the whole spin, so once you’re looking directly down the pipe keep turning your shoulders so that you land in the transition nice and straight (and if possible, slightly on your toeside edge).
