SNOWBOARDER is bringing you a series of how-to snowboard videos to help fill up that bag of tricks, and help you learn how to ride that snowboard a little better.
Watch pro rider and Head Coach of Mt. Hood’s Windells camp, Pat Milbery, as he shows you how to tackle a Miller Flip.
1. Approach the obstacle as straight as you can and with a little bit more speed than you think you need—you want a lot of pop so you can make sure your arm is straight when you plant your hand.
2. Ride up as if you’re doing a frontside 360. Drop your front shoulder, straighten your leading arm, and plant it on the obstacle.
3. Grab wherever you want. Pat usually grabs indy, but you can grab tail, stale, or whatever your little heart desires.
4. Try to get your legs and your planting arm as straight as you can, because it looks a lot sweeter and the pop feels better.
5. Bring it around and land your trick flat-based on the other side.
