Less then 45 angle. You want to be aiming about a board length down the rail. Remember to ollie above the rail then put your board down on it. Speed is your friend when hitting rails from the side but make sure you don't overshoot the rail. And remember to look down the rail once on it. Practicing to ollie over the rail landing on the other side is a good way to get the feeling of being over the rail.
