Now we put these two elements together. Traverse a gentle slope with heel side of your snowboard biting into slope a bit. This will help to stabilize you for next part. Begin to put your weight on your front leg and then pull your rear leg up. This action will leave you riding on tip and edge of your snowboard and looking really cool.
As you can imagine practice and control is key to a blunt nose slide. Make sure you are very good at wheelies and slides before trying two elements together. Another thing to think about is quality of your snowboard. Wheelies are known to cause weak and damaged snowboards to break due to extra strain put on snowboard. If you have any question about yours you may wish to practice on a rental snowboard.
