Trick Tip
FS Lipslide

Lipslides look very similar to Boardslides with the difference that you lift your back truck instead of your front truck over the obstacle.

It’s a good foundation to have FS Tailslides on lock because to movement is similar. It’s best to learn FS Lipslides on a flat rail because it’s easier to get the board over the rail, and you have enough space to lock in on the slide. Try not to jump too high to avoid the breaking of your deck because of the impact.

1. Approach the ledge almost parallel with your feet in the Ollie position and ollie up towards the ledge.

2. Once your board is above the rail or ledge, start turning your hips and your board in a frontside 90 degree motion and lock in with the middle part of your board on the ledge or rail.

Your back truck will now be on top of the ledge or over on the other side of the rail.

3. After you’re locked the Lipslide in, everything else is similar to a Boardslide.

To have a good balance while sliding, try to have your feet on the bolts of your trucks and your body weight centered to avoid slipping out.

4. At the end of the ledge, move your hips back and roll away straight.

5. To channel the pressure on the board, try to land with your feet on the bolts of your trucks.
