Definitely one of my favorite tricks. Just the motion of it feels so good/right. I finally got them back after nearly a year of not being able to do them for some reason. Fucking bizarre how tricks come and go like that.

Favourite trick.

Anyone here learn front boards before bs boardslides? I remember getting close to front boards as a kid on the flatbar when some older guys said 'hey, can you even bs boardslide? You should try learn them first'. I told them I couldn't even get near them and then went for one and ate shit. Afterwards they were like 'yeah wow, stick to the frontside ones' haha.

I still don't feel all that confident on a back board compared to a front board.

Not the first front boards that come to mind, but here's some Ethan Fowler:

Hell yes! If I could only do one trick for the rest of my life other than an ollie, it'd easily be a frontside boardslide.


Anywho, first that pooped into my mind was Kenny Reed's from 7 year glitch.










Also, front boards on the middle of a kink to pop over the end have always been on of my favorite looking tricks and this one @3:33, even though it's switch is on of the best.

Edit: Anyone remember who front boarded the gold rail? I remember seeing a photo of someone doing it with the rail all knobbed.

Does anyone else have LESS appreciation for a front board to fakie than a front board back to normal stance? I always thought it was kind of like cheating to continue the rotation, like you didn't actually have full control of the trick/posture. On a big rail, take what you can get, for sure, but anything else, bring it back to normal stance.

To an extent, yes. I do understand what you're saying but I also think it's just as hard. A front board to fakie is gnar in its own right because you're sliding completely blind, backwards lol.

I would rather try front board to regular on el toro then front board to fakie haha

This is so similar to me, I feel so sketchy doing bs boardslides still to this day, but fs boards have always been my go to rail trick, all my friends are always surprised when I go straight to fs board slide on a rail rather then backside, only issue I've ever had with the trick is sticking on a rail and flying back onto my head (one of the first times trying a down rail).

I also learned f/s boards before b/s. It's always a favourite trick of mine, I can barely slide them now though. It's the only trick I've ever done down a handrail, and that was sketchy as fuck.

There's a photo of Ronnie Creager f/s boardsliding a flat rail, and the photo was taken inside a restaurant - you can see him through the window, and all the patrons are looking at him. It's such an awesome pic, but I can't find it anywhere. It was from his TWS spotlight back in the early 00's, Seu Trinh took it. If I find the mag I'll scan it.

I like both equally. Look and feel good. And I think coming out to fakie is harder.

I have no idea where that footage was but Pontus did a pretty cool one to fakie on a bench at the Barca train station in an old vid, about ten years ago.

That's the one I wanted to post, but you beat me to it. The one that starts at 3:13 (the make and the slam) is another one of my favorite fs boardslides ever also.
