1. To do a Frontside Tailslide, approach the ledge in front of you and ride almost parallel to it.

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

2. Once your board is above the ledge, start turning your hips and turn the board in a frontside 90 degree motion, land with your tail locked in on the edge of the ledge.

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

Try to center your bodyweight to avoid slipping out.

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

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