nice! i too was super stoked the very first attempt at board slides this season and i nailed it super clean, and even rode switch out, dont know how that one happened. i realized i didnt leave any thing behind last season and i was right back to where i left off in a matter of hours. the one thing i need to keep in mind for BSs is to make sure the board is perpendicular to the feature. some times ill get on to it, rotate my board almost to a BS, but leave my shoulders in a semi 50/50 orientation, so then the board instantly just goes back to 50/50 and i slide off.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

it sounds like your riding on to the feature instead of jumping onto it...if thats the case, i have found my best boardslides come from a nice ollie up and turn my shoulders in the air and land in a boardslide vs. riding on and trying to turn the board. just went again last night and had some super nice back boards going on a nice 20ish ft rail....

also, ive found, at least for me being newer at boardslides, that which way i come off (switch or reg) is kind of decided for me based on which way i was leaning a lil more too...as i get them more and more dialed in, ill hopefully be more consistently balanced in the center of the rail and not slightly falling towards one side...cause the times that i ride them best i am completely centered and balanced on the rail and then i can choose wether to come off switch or ret

thx! but from my understanding, theyre called back boardslides, which i agree makes no sense, but apparently in rail terminology its back asswards when it comes to the terms

ya, the only rails they had the first day were ride on. once the street rails get put up ill give it a go jumping and rotating to the BS

cool, just fyi, you can start practicing jumping on even on the ride on style rails, and its actually not a bad idea since you dont have the front lip of the rail/box to get hung on while trying the jumping on

Easy way to understand the terminology is if your back is facing the rail it's a backside trick, if your front is facing the rail it's a frontside trick.
