Butters, ground tricks, flatland, or flat ground, it’s all the same. In the NW we like to call it buttering. It’s basically doing a nosepress or tailpress, sometimes while spinning and sometimes not.
This year we decided to take our carpet flex tests out on the slopes and see if what would happen if we could butter all of our boards back to back. We’ll we didn’t get through all of them but we did make it to 21. Somewhere in that we stumbled upon a name to give the best butterers. And the NUDDER BUDDER was born.
8 out 21 snowboards won our NUDDER BUDDER Award. The boards that won had 3 things in common.
1. Super easy to press
2. Stable once buttering
3. Didn’t loop out unless you got stupid with it
Here is a list of the all of the boards we tested. All of the NUDDER BUDDER winners are signified with a NUDDER BUDDER badge during the video.
