almost got 270 to fs boardslide on the skateboard rail tonight... almost. I think I could land it on a box but this rail I got is skinny as hell like maybe 2" O.D.

It's the second attempt in this 30 second clip, I'll put it out to you guys: does it count?

I'm leaning towards "no" but it's pretty damn close...

Aside from the whole spinning part the 270 on feels more natural than just a regular FS I think because you don't have to counter-rotate your upper body - when you do the front 270 spin it puts your upper body in the right position for fs boardslide. Weird, I was kinda surprised at how easy it felt compared to just a regular fs.

When you say backside I think you mean fs lipside - a true backside would be approaching with the rail/box to your heelside. The terminology is weird it still confuses me but basically fs/bs refer to your position relative to the feature. Then, boardslide is if you bring the nose over the feature first, lipslide if you lead with the tail. So a fs lipslide and a bs boardslide look almost the same except for the approach.

I think.

If anyone wants to carpool from Ann Arbor and share the 2 for 1 deal let me know. I'm always about saving a buck or 2.
