Easy way to understand the terminology is if your back is facing the rail it's a backside trick, if your front is facing the rail it's a frontside trick.

threej21 cool, just fyi, you can start practicing jumping on even on the ride on style rails, and its actually not a bad idea since you dont have the front lip of the rail/box to get hung on while trying the jumping on

also, ive found, at least for me being newer at boardslides, that which way i come off (switch or reg) is kind of decided for me based on which way i was leaning a lil more too...as i get them more and more dialed in, ill hopefully be more consistently balanced in the center of the rail and not slightly falling towards one side...cause the times that i ride them best i am completely centered and balanced on the rail and then i can choose wether to come off switch or ret
ya, the only rails they had the first day were ride on. once the street rails get put up ill give it a go jumping and rotating to the BS
