Trick Tip: Noseslides to Fakie
I personally like this trick because it’s like doing a boardslide to fakie. It’s a more relaxed trick. You basically just let go with your front hand and fall off instead of trying to force it. So here goes:
Edge at the rail a little bit different than a regular backside boardslide. Start a little bit further away. You want to ollie like you would to a boardslide to fakie—light light ollie and let go with your front hand as you are olling.to lock into a good solid noseslide.
For this trick, locking into the noseslide is a bit easier. When you let go with your front hand both fins lock into the rail.
Now put 90 percent of your weight on your front foot and 10 percent on your back. Your backfoot is guiding this trick around.
Start thinking about going to fakie by starting to stand up and pull on your back hand.
Push down a little bit with your front foot and pull with your back hand to pop you to fakie.
Spot your landing and make sure you are getting ready to land on your heels. When you pull your arm forward it will pull your body around with it.
Keep your weight on you heels and get ready to ride it out.
Bend your knees to hold on to the landing and stay on top of you board.
Get ready to ride away clean.
Closing thoughs: Just make sure that you don’t edge too much because then you won’t lock into a noseslide, but if you don’t edge enough you wont get into the noseslide at all. Remember 90/10 weight balance to keep your tail up and you’ll be good to go!
