ok a lip slide is where your back binding goes over the rail so a FS lipslide looks like a BS boardslide and vice versa. a blunt is where you jump over the rail and onto your tail(ha that rhymed) so a BS blunt will look a lot like a BS board but your back foot should be over the rail. then Nose Blunts are like a lip slide where your whole board goes over. A FS nose blunt will look like a FS lipslide but your leading foot will be over the rail.

Very wordy and confusing but this is to sum it up
blunt will look like a board slide but on your tail
nose blunt will look like a lip slide but you'll be on your nose

Oh goodness... My brain... :O

So a lipside, you are basically approaching it dead on, while a bluntside is sort of approaching from the side right?

That's what I am picking up from those videos and alecude88's description :O

not at all. The side of the box/rail you approach on only determines if its Frontside or Backside.

Heres some quick paint diagrams i drew up

Sorry if I missed this, but my head is still confused. It looks like a blunt and a lip are nearly the same except one is under your back foot and the other is between the bindings, or is there more to it?

That leads to my next question, whats the difference between a lipslide and boardslide?

if you look at my diagram and pay close attention to the color coded tail and nose, youll notice that on the lip slide, your back foot always goes over the rail, where as a board slide, your front foot goes over the rail. Basically theyre both board slides, but with exact opposite rotations to get on the rail.

A blunt slide is just like a board slide except you go over the rail a bit more to get your back foot on the rail instead of the middle of the board.

Now, to confuse you more:

A NOSE BLUNT is the exact same as a LIP SLIDE except you go over the rail a bit more to get your FRONT FOOT on the rail.

So in conclusion:

Lip Slide: Your back foot goes over the rail
Board Slide: Your front foot goes over the rail
Blunt Slide: Board slide but you slide on your back foot instead of in the middle
Nose Blunt: Lip slide but you slide on your front foot instead of in the middle

Alright, that makes sense. Thank you for the explanation.

I have another question, whats a hardway spin or hardway gap onto a feature?

Are you sure about this? According to this video (Mitch Brown, Burton open winner), a frontside lipslide differs from your diagram. It seems to me he's sliding with the weight on his tail, not the middle of the board.

Are there any websites containing a decent trick list with animations?
