1. Approach the ledge almost parallel while you put your feet in the Ollie position and Ollie up towards the ledge.

2. To get the middle of your board on the ledge you have to do half a Frontside 180 Ollie, so a Frontside 90 degree Ollie.

3. Getting the middle of your board on top of the rail or ledge is not too hard because you have a lot of space in the middle of your board.

To prevent your board from cracking, you should try not to jump too high and to land smoothly on the rail.

4. To have a good balance while sliding, try to have your feet on top of the bolts of your trucks and your bodyweight centered to avoid slipping and falling back.

5. At the end, turn your hips and shoulders back in a straight riding position and come off the end of the rail or ledge and ride away clean.
