1. To perform a Backside Tailslide, approach the ledge that is located behind you almost parallel.

Put your feet in the Ollie position and ollie up towards the ledge.

2. Once your board is above the ledge, start turning your hips and turn your board backside 90 degrees and lock in with the tail on the edge of the ledge.

3. Then shift all your bodyweight on the tail to get a proper backside tailslide stance.

4. Try to center your bodyweight to avoid slipping out.

5. At the end, you can come out of the slide either to Regular or to Fakie.

You can also try to pop out off the side of the ledge with a little pop down movement of the tail.
