I haven't really seen this in the "tips, tricks & coaching" section thinking this might make a good sticky for newbie riders (IE: me) anyone trying to understand trick naming better, dial in tricks (in some cases)
I know you can goggle this but having it on the forum may be helpful to some. Plus gave me something to do till riding season starts and over my morning coffee.
I thought these diagrams were very easy to understand as well....
Is this correct? I always thought that the only difference between a boardslide and lipslide was which direction you jumped on from. For example (regular rider), if you come up with the rail on your left (behind you) and do a "regular" boardslide, that would be a backside boardslip. However, if you come up with the rail on your right (front of you) and slide down exactly the same way, that would be called a frontside lipslide.
If that's wrong, then what do you call the rail tricks like that where you spin the opposite way that you would expect for the side you're coming from (opposite direction of what the diagram shows).
HA EDIT!!!! Never mind, I guess that's exactly what the diagram shows. I didn't really look at it that closely.. my bad
