Virus you are also referring to a hand rail, more the smaller round ones right.
Try changing your approach angle it should pretty shallow.
Also you should be landing on the rail around 2-3 feet down the rail, not the very top. Your momentum is carrying you off the far side and when you fall off the same side you ollie on from your not getting your weight fully on the rail, a little bit of `not totally committed`.
If you have fair speed you may have to angle your board to kinda hit the rail then shift your weight up onto the rail. That angle very slight allows your board to absorb some of your forward momentum slowing you down to not slip off the rail.
Hope some of this helped
Thanks, yea come to think of it my biggest problem is that I keep trying to land on the very beginning, not that far down.
so did the tips help
post up some pics if you have them. I was gonna do some park last weekend but still gun shy after my crash.
Saw a rainbow rail I really wanted to hit and I know I have the skill but just couldn't pull the trigger.
Like Bock E said in the previous comment, where you're looking matters. I do spot the rail because I have to see that I'm going to hit it, then shift my gaze towards the end of the rail or beyond. It is times when I catch myself looking down at my feet or somewhere else, that I fall off the rail too early.
You can kind of see what I mean here, although this video doesn't really have the best perspective and also it is a 180 on, but I would take basically the same approach to a front 50/50 on that rail.
I slip out a little early but this is because I'm still dialing in that 180. Watch it again though and you'll see that I don't really lock on to the rail until about 0:17, I'm definitely going a few feet down the rail before I'm actually on top of it and that's what I'm talking about.
This is a relatively short rail, but you can see how if you land a few feet further down the rail you're going more forward and less "up" when you pop off the lip. That should help you if you are suffering from white boy can't jump syndrome
You are genius! Good advice and technique you have there. I'm having a bit of problem too with ollies. These will really help me.
