1. Approach a quarter pipe with enough speed. Since you have to do a Backside 180 before the Disaster, you should turn your shoulders a bit earlier to prepare for the turn.

2. Your back foot should be positioned in the pocket of your tail, so that you have nice scoop.

3. Now it is all about timing. When your front truck leaves the quarter pipe, that is the moment when you scoop your tail and turn your hips around to get your tail over the coping.

4. Once you are locked in, try to keep your Disaster balanced for a little while before shifting your weight forward and leave the coping by easing the weight of your back leg and lifting your back truck out of the Disaster by pressing the front truck down on the quarter pipe.

5. Make sure you press down long enough, so your back truck doesn’t hang up.
