‘The Onyx’ – Snowboard Flatland Trick Tip Video Tutorial


We’re back with another snowboard trick tip to help you guys have move fun on the snow, this is our favourite jib/flatland combo… ‘The Onyx’.

It’s not that we created it, just the real name for this combo is pretty long (FS nose butter 180 – to – switch BS 180 tail press – to – spin a little bit – to – danish) so we called the Onyx for ease while teaching it on our sessions and it stuck! The cool thing with jib/flatland combos is there are no rules, use this as inspiration then add your own unique stamp to it by switching elements up and putting new tricks in throughout. Creativity and fun are the keys here 🙂

Have fun and let us know how you get on, you can also check out our full range of lesson, courses and camps in the UK, Morzine, Avoriaz and Les Gets plus our summer snowboard camp in Les Deux Alpes at http://onyxsnowboarding.com
