I always hope guys Kevin here so today Chris and I we're building a new runnin for our rail we've dug you out everything riding into the rail so we got this nice long run in here right to a rail so down here this is our rail guys it's a PVC pipe very smooth very forgiving a really good intro to rail site feature and so this is a great place to learn today I'm going for ten tricks some of these rail tricks at them before and some of them I've never done so it would be my first time attempting some of these tricks too so I'll take you guys through each trick you should learn first and then give you a tip on each one all right let's do it so first trick down frontside 5050 came on nice and smooth and yeah I just looked to the end of the rail came in with a lot of speed you probably don't eat that much speed all right next up backside 5050 backside 5050 came on real smooth on the easier way to remember what's front side and what's back side when the rail is in front of you that's front side and when it's behind you behind your heels those are backside tricks the third trick I'm going to go for is the backside boardslide and so for this one the rails going to be behind my heels on my backside and I'm gonna twist my board sideways land facing forward one of the keys for getting that back porch light on we're just practicing the emotion before I dropped in so just feeling what that twist is gonna feel like on the rail alright guys so the next trick is front lip this time I'm coming on from the other side of the rail so it's in front of me and for this one I'm twisting my body so that my tail is gonna actually come up up and over the rail and then slide across another common thing for this one is sliding it a bit on the heels so reaching that front hand forward the most difficult part of the front lips is getting your tail over the rail is really easy here we've got this super easy PVC pipe but when you take it in the tram park and there's a bigger hop on rail you really got to make sure to hop and ollie high enough so that you get your tail over all right so the next trick in the list is frontside boardslide so come in on the same side of that rail this time I'm gonna turn my board so I'm sliding backwards this is a pretty scary trick for the first time sliding backwards a good way to build the progression is the first through the 50-50 on then twist it get used to that feeling but if you're feeling confident you can just go straight into it and for myself I really think about my back hand and back foot reaching away from each other to get that twist so that time I was a bit too heavy so it's got level it out get more on to my heels nice and centered definitely one of the obstacles to overcome is committing your weight to being centered over top of the feature and if you have a really easy real set up like we have here it's less intimidating and much easier to commit with your weight and then you can progress the fit it onto higher features as you improve alright so next up a trick I've never done before back lip so this time the rails gonna be behind me and I'm gonna turn my board twists so that I slide backwards and the key this great part of this trick is getting the tail of my board up and over the rail and sliding backwards the hard thing with that trick is it's blind most of the time with the rail beam behind you so you really got to commit luckily you got this nice easy rail to really commit to repetition is key with these kinds of tricks guys get them on to an easy feature and then just do them over and over and build that muscle memory let's go again the next trick I'm going to try is cab 180 on the reason I like Cabernet Dionne is because you ride in switch and then land on the rail going your normal way so much easier than trying to land on the rail switch for the first time and the key is to get a nice twisting 180 on that time I just committed too much to going on to the relative went right over I just got to commit more of my momentum going straight down into Viet the key to getting that cowboy niddy on we're just figuring out how much to commit to going onto the rail not going too far over not going too far under right in between okay guys so for the last three tricks I'm gonna do front board front lip and also a back board and instead of twisting I'm going to fully commit with my body so that I come out of all these tricks fakie front board front lip and back board [Applause] yeah the key to getting those board slides or lipslides to fakie is just committing with your whole body so just letting it come around so that you can ride it out it's switch for the balance on the board slides left side is a fakie just really important to commit your hips over top of the center of the feature and then your board will be nice and flat across and then you can come in switch awesome guys so give those 10 tricks to try if you guys have any questions let me know down in the comments before you try these tricks on the rail try them on a box first and if you can when you're first trying them on rails try them on a really easy one like this one thanks Chris for filming this video give this video a like for Chris's filming see you guys next time

    On the 50/50 when you get on the rail do you just ride it or is there a way to adjust your body so you not slip off?

    I don‘t know why but I‘m afraid of hitting rails
    Boxes are easy but my fear when hitting a rail is that I just slip and hit on the rail hard
    Does anybody have some experience to tell me if my fear is logical ?

    Het Kevin, may I be so bold as to give you some tips on how to improve your boardslides? My friends have been telling me to get the rail underneath my front foot (except for tail/blunt slides, where you want to get it under your back foot). This was a real gamechanger for me, because it gives a lot more stability on the rail, and makes it easier to pop off the rail. They also use this technique to do 270s and pretzels out, which I am told is practically impossible with the rail in the middle of your board.
    If you try this, please tell me what you think.
    Thanks for reading and thank you for hosting a great channel.

    Whats the difference between a backside or front side board slide and the lip slides? It seems the same to me.
