OMG, you been boarding for a couple months and your working on a frickin tantrum... i'v been boarding a year, and i'm just learning how to jump, well, actualy land, i can jump, but i dont understand the whole landing concept... am i behind? seems like i should be doing at least 180 grabs by now. <BR> <BR>Dave

Geez - maybe I'm an old woman - but I've been boarding for 3 years &amp; I still suck. I've got a lot of the surface tricks down (180's, 360's) and I've got an air 180 down (from only one side tho) and am now just beginning to work on grabs. Get a bunch of the instructional videos. They help big-time. Or go for lessons - that totally helps! Good luck!

well, as it looks, you shouldent be worying about not being able to get the tantrum down after only 3 months. So maby you should work more on getting bigger air and nicer/smother grabs and 1's and 3's. Then mabey when your more comfortable you can try the tantrum again, and... well, i'd bet you'll beable to do it.

This is my first year also. I picked up the sport almost instantly because i have snowboarded and skateboarded all my life. Im attempting tantrums right now and untill i land one, my advice is to keep practicing. Any trick i have ever learned takes commitment.
