I can do them during one session a year. The only time it makes sense. Next session it's over.

But Carrol gets those extra zest points due to that mandible claw action.  Both are insane, my fave one is Carrol's

Break it down for us uneducated peasants please.

I landed my first proper one after years of trying them on and off, where your shoulder is pointing heading into the trick is critical, as is pre-winding the shoulders slightly into the ledge, if that makes sense.

Justin Strubing and Ethan Fowler had some sick, high speed ones.

After close to 2 decades of skateboarding (on and off) I finally managed to do more than 1 in a session. Rolled away fakie on all 3 of them but goddamn it felt good. Shoulders pointing into the ledge and slotting the board alongside the ledge really helped me from not sticking every attempt.

I'll get them coming out forward soon.

can you go into a little more depth on this topic please.

The shoulders bit I got from rewatching a Ben Degros video where he was crushing BS tailslides on a ledge:


At the 2:08 mark you can see him rolling up to the ledge at a slight angle, probably 15-20 degrees. I always thought you had to roll parallel with the ledge but I could never lock in because my tail ended up too far away from the edge; my tail wouldn't lock in flush with the edge.
At the 2:22 mark you can see his leading shoulder pointing into the ledge slightly, like he is pre-winding his torso to get into position on the ledge.

As for "slotting the tail in" I cultivated a bad habit over the years of slamming my trucks, nose and tail on top ledges when I skate. I struggled with FS tailslides for years because I was popping way above the ledge and trying to stomp it in and hope to slide. I find for tailslides I do better when adopting a light pop, short ollie (depending on the height of the ledge), and scooping your tail into position. I find this helps me lock in my tail at just the right height instead of trying to muscle and stomp my tail in like I'm killing ants.

Last thing I would add in pinpointing where you want your tail to land on the ledge as you're rolling up to it. I found myself looking and landing my board in a spot well past where I could stand up tall to slide. While I would lock in and slide I couldn't control and always came out fakie.

That was a whole lot of words for a trick, but feel free to PM me and we can nerd out over this trick.

Nah nah nah, letís nerd out over it right here. My tentative grasp on this trick has me over-intellectualizing the rights and wrongs.

Iíd like to hear some more anecdotal advice from whoever has any.

Couple things from yesterdays session:
1) Waxing the side of the ledge helps a lot
2) Wheel shape does make a difference, IMO. I'm still learning them so I need all the help I can get. Got a better slide when doing them with Spitfire Lock-Ins than with Classics, which was strange since they have a much larger contact patch. Or I could have been exhausted and my legs were full of lactic acid.
3) Committing to putting your weight on the tail make a world of difference. I was getting pretty lazy with them midway, I was locking in, not sliding and just bouncing off every time. Then the weird kid at the park (every park has one) mentioned that it looked like I was not committing to it. Decided to push a little harder and sit into my tail which really helped.

(Christ I could spend 2 hours at a ledge spot just doing that 1 trick)

Brought back the Impossible too. I like looking at his development from grom (Quiksilver and Osiris video) to a hybrid of Dill and AVE (Mindfield) to Kirchart inspired but more stylish and tech (Gravis).
