The trick feels so different on a proper ledge. When the wheels hang over it’s close to how it works on rails. At least for me.

He approaches it like a back lip. Back foot goes over the obstacle and he aproaches the edge backside. so its the same movement as jumping into a back lip.

I can see the front board aspect of it, but for me its a back lip.

Back trucks DO go over the edge.

I guess its something in between.

This logic is just of. Expanding that logic, you're saying it'd be impossible to boardslide from his starting position because either way he turns his body his back foot would "go over the obstacle" as you put it. It's a fs boardslide. Sorry for addressing an older comment but the reasoning there just kind of blew my mind.

If he‘d bs boardslide from this starting point most people would refer to it as a „transfer front lip“ not in my book. Sry.

Also this here‘s anotget one by suciu at 2:20

Thx for reminding me of chewy cannons front boards.

There are some fucked up ones in his LAF part.

Nollie (!!!) front board on a drop ledge at 1:55

And a gnarly sw front board in brussles at 4:00.

Not that I could Nollie like that, but I can see the overall movement being beneficial to how one needs to get into Fs Boardslides on a ledge. Like, pulling up the front of the board shifts the weight where it needs to go in order to avoid locking the front wheels on the ledge. The one at 4:00 actually perfectly illustrates where the center of gravity needs to be. At least from my semi-theoretical point of view as I am trying to learn them.

I love Chewy's style, especially that he has his own, difficult bag of left field tricks.
