So the board goes up a bit above the coping and you can lock into the Disaster.

4. Once your are locked in, try to keep your Disaster balanced for a little while.

5. To finish the trick shift your weight forward and leave the coping by lifting your back leg and letting your back truck out of the Disaster by pressing the front truck down on the quarter pipe.
