So my friend posted a video on facebook of him doing a bunch of stuff and one trick was a "lipslide". Is it a lipslide if you come in toeside and slide on your tail. I was told that for a FS lipslide you come in toeside jump over the rail and land on your nose facing down the hill and that a BS lipslide is when you some in heelside and jump over the rail onto your nose facing up hill. Just wondering if someone can clear this up for me. I just need to know the differences between Nose/Tail slides, Boardslides and lipslides. Thanks for any help.

Lipslides are when your trailing foot passes over the obstacle and you land with the board perpendicular to the rail and slide over it. The rail will be right inbetween the bindings. Watch his rear foot 47 seconds into the video.

Boardslides are basically the same thing but the trailing foot does not pass over the obstacle. You can see his rear foot does not pass over the rail. Watch his foot about 1:30 into the video

Noseslides and tailslides are exactly what they sound like.
