you have conqured the skill of ollieng, now it's time to take it up a notch
and move on to bigger and better tricks. The boardslide looks much cooler
than the ollie, and is still a very simple trick. Note that the following
instructions are for hand rails only. It probaly won'twork on steps or anything
else. Only rails. Got it? Good. You might want to pick a small and less elevated
rail. Then move up as your skill grows. Now move on to the instructions!
you approch the hand rail. Make sure, you are going at moderate speed. Don't
go slow. If you do, the board will flip and you'll end up doing a face-plant
instead. So faster is better! Remember how I said that the ollie is used in
almost every trick? Well here's the part. Ollie up to the rail. Make sure
you get your front truck over the rail. You should be sliding down the rail
at this point. Be commited: Don't Bail! Bailing on rails is not good. Plus
you'll never get any better jumping off in the middle of a grind. So DO NOT
BAIL! Now, to keep at a good, consistant speed, you should actually lean forward
a little and shift your weight. When you get near the end of the rail, get
ready to pop (OLLIE) off. When you do so, Turn your body and board back into
skating position. Bend your knees upoun impact. Remember to stay centered.
Now you can just ride away.
may seem a little complicated at first, but I gareentee that you will get
the hang of it soon. Just keep up the practicing, and soon you'll be sliding
in no time. Happy Boarding!
