I've posted these before, but here are a few of me (yes, this is what a gay, skateboarding, attorney looks like when not biting a pillow, or making a fool of myself in court).

Good pics. I lost all of my old pics in a tragic breach of lease (landlord's fault!) some years ago, but my mom recently found a few, so I'll have to scan them and post.

Hey, i was just wondering, how long did it take u get up the nerve to hit that rail? I've tried tons of rails, but always pussy out. Thats why i'm more of a ledge skater.

I've been doing handrails since...about 1988 or so. The first one I ever did was 3-stairs. The longest was 14. The trick, like anything else, is to work your way up to them. Start trying to slide higher and higher ledges and flat rails. Then find a short (i.e. 3-stair) and low handrail, and start with that. The thing that is actually kind of weird, is that shorter rails are actually harder to do than longer ones. The reason is that you have to ollie much higher to get onto a short rail. With longer rails, you ollie out to them, rather than up to them.

And one other bit of advice, wear a cup.

Thanks for the advice. I have been eyeing this mellow 6 stair rail at a high school near my house and my goal for the summer is to front board it.

How old are you Sedition? Seems like you're near my age... the pics my mom found are from the late 80s and maybe 90, 91.

With shorter rails it's also much more difficult to do a boardslide or anything technical, hard to get into and out of the position on the rail in time. Rails in Snowboarding looks so much better because we can carry more speed and do longer and smoother rails.
