Backside 180 onto a rail

I've been having a whole passel of trouble learning this trick onto a rail. I seem to ALWAYS drift off the far side of the rail. Do I need to press more into the side? Or really focus on leaving the lip dead parallel to the rail?

Lean a bit inside, and catch the rail with your toes when you land on the rail. That will ensure you don't slip off the other side.

People telling you how to do it over the internet isn't going to help, anyway. You're going to need to actually go out there and do it yourself until you get the trick.

Have you tried this on dry ground to kinda get the feeling of landing on a rail.
I'd try this without your board then with the board. May be kinda hard with the board on but worth trying

Hell it's summer why not practice the movement in your yard, basement or garage

I realize that truth. I just didn't know which was the better technique.. Ollie like a skateboard then 180 or pop off both feet like you would for a booter then 180.

I agree with Slyder, practice indoors and do it till the wheels fall off, or something like that. I train with a balance beam at my gym, it's about 8 inches off the ground, but I found others that ride use duct tape as a reference point of where to land.

Ollieing might actually help you stick on it. I like to pop because when I ollie it's out of control. What evers comfortable.

Pop. No idea why other people are telling you to ollie.

You want to pop into the 180, just like you would if you were doing a 180 off a jump. Pop is always the go-to for a trick unless you specifically need the extra height of an ollie or are doing an ollie specific trick (ie - Nollie back 180).

Pop > Ollie because it's more stable and controlled, especially if you're spinning.
