Bs boardslide trick tip

The backside boardslide is probably the most easy slide trick, where you slide over a rail or curb with the middle of your board.

Make sure you know how to ollie really well before you try to boardslide.


(Video by JackO)

  1. 1

    Approach the rail at a 20 degree angle with your back facing it. Your speed should be based on the surface and length of the obstacle.

    Put your feet in the ollie position.



  2. 2

    When you're close enough to the rail, ollie 90 degrees onto it. Make sure you get one truck over the rail.






  3. 3

    If you go fast enough, you'll slide over the rail. Try to keep your balance.



  4. 4

    At the end of the rail, swing your arms to turn your body back and land.


Tips

  • Make sure the object you want to slide on is smooth enough. Wax is usually not optional!

  • Ollie just high enough to clear the rail, if you go a lot higher than the rail, you might break your board.

I DID THIS TRICK ON MY FIRST TRY TODAY! :) Im sorry, for the caps. Its just I feel proud of myself because I always watched others do it and it looked really hard to do. And I was scared to do it, but I got over my fear and did it. yay (H) EDIT: @Flip try to press down harder and push your body slightly more forward. Not too much forward but just enough to keep your balance easier. Helped me hen i was doing them.
