How to back three on to a rail
 
Hi Can anyone give me advice on how to back 3 onto a rail? As I approach I have trouble with edge grip. I don't think I should carve. So I stay as flat based as possible and what ends up happening is I butter kinda bad off the lip. Thanks!

You shouldn't be riding on a flat base, that would make it very hard to spin a 360. Just do a 360 like you'd normally do on flatground/off a cat track (assuming you have bs 360s on lockdown), but adjust your entry line to come in at that slight angle so you can carve/edge pressure but still land going straight on the rail after the 360.

Honestly this is one trick that will truly test how good your 360 technique is right now. If you have bs 360s on lockdown, this will be a lot easier, if not then you'll find this trick almost impossible.

Well said. Yeah this trick is all about whether or not you are a mack at back 3's. You have to be able to do them perfectly in order to land on the rail and stay on the rail. Explaining all of the mechanics to a back three on would take forever so I'll try to simplify it. You have to throw it with as little of edge dig as possible, as straight as possible, be early enough with your spotting that you can set it in, and again, don't huck it and cut into it.
