The method was dreamed up by skateboarder Neil Blender – a vert-riding legend who entered a highest air contest in California in 1985 with rules stating that the air would be measured from the lowest point of the rider’s body or board. So Neil grabbed his board and arched his back to squeeze as much height out of the trick as he could. He reckoned that this was his ‘method’ for winning the contest, and the name stuck. They’re not super easy to do – especially with real style – but practice them and you’ll have an absolute classic move in your back pocket. And don’t forget, the method has outlasted every fashion and looks set to be the definitive snowboarding trick for many more years to come. Best get learning then…
