Default need help with fs boardslides

every time i go for one, when i land on the rail i either slide off immediately or fall backwards. any tips to help me stay balanced? sorry i had bad wording. its definitely fs board because my back is facing downhill on the rail.

are you oll'ing onto the rail? Or a boardslide from a 50/50, sounds like olling...
make sure your are perpendicular to the rail. If it's a down rail have your body in a slight downward position. As you said you "fall backwards" immediately I think your body positions is leaning the opposite way of the feature and the board is coming out from under you.

Quick thing to check is your head spotting the end of the rail and are your knees bent enough? Oh and try and keep shoulders perpendicular to the rail.

i just perfected these, so heres what i have learned:
while learning, slide half of the box or rail as a 50 50, ant then slowly turn your board into the frontboard position. doing this slowly will help you get the feel of weight disribution and balance while sliding. just keeping turning earlier and earlier until you can slide the whole thing in a perfect frontboard.

What are you doing them on? Single barrel? Flat bar? Flat box? Down Box? They're done a little defferently on each.

Default i feel your pain

I just tried fs boardslides for the first time last night and i'm having the same issue of falling back, on my ass, on the box. i chalk it up to being scared, so i'm naturally leaning back.

sorry this post isn't helping you much - just adding my support. i'll keep trying and add my feedback if i get it.

front board, your back is facing downhill when you hit the feature, you're falling backwards?

my advice to go further is just basic center of balance stuff... for riding anything like a box or rail as a beginner... shawty get low low low low low low low low.....

and wear apple bottom jeans... those boots with the fur... I think that might be vital too

Yeah, that'd hurt wouldn't it?

I think there's a lot of confusion about boardslide terminology. I know it gives me fits.
