Fs Noseslides
« on: March 18, 2023, 07:21:29 PM »
Please give me some help on this trick. I kind of learned it, but I'm definitely not doing it right. I mostly get stuck, and if I don't get stuck I slip out immediately.

I've only done a single fs noseslide that felt right, and that was on accident while trying a fs crook. So that taught me that my technique is extremely off and the first 80% of the trick should be done exactly like a fs crook. Is that correct?

Riding parallel to the ledge, doing a straight ollie, keeping shoulders straight and turning the board only with my front foot. Put the nose on the ledge with a slight angle (underrotated), then put all the weight on the front toes and keep the head above the front foot. Correct?

There has to be some way to get into the right position without it being extremely uncomfortable. Just doesn't feel right.
I can fs crook and that's gotta be harder than this, but somehow it's impossible for me.

Edit: Just watched a few clips and noticed that some people don't actually keep their shoulders straight but actually slide backwards. Might be more comfortable. Seems like some do the straight ollie and others fully scoop into it

i learned front noses but doing those quick front nose to fakie almost like a tapping motion.  (bs 180 with a pivot off the ledge) definently found it easier to not have my shoulders straight and slide backwards while peeking over my shouler to spot my landing

i got solid front noses - im too lazy to read your post, but here'd my advice

the key is to pre-wax your board and to go fast. dont forget to wax the baseplate a little bit

you dont slide on your entire nose, there's a line at the edge of the baseplate where your board curves a little bit - thats where you slide. if your entire nose is presssed on the ledge, youre not doing it right

you hold it with the ball of your foot. your front foot knee is bent and hold all your weight on it

make sure your shoulders are always parallel with the ledge

footstance doesnt mean shit

you dont need good back 180s

you must come at it parallel to the ledge. coming at it at an angle will not work

I was trying to get these back and one of the guys kept bringing this up and I had to let him know this was before my time.

As for tips,
When I learned them, I skated a ledge that went downwards and was a little higher than I could Ollie.

A higher ledge helps with stalls and to feel out that slide point that the person above me said.

The downward ledge helps because to learn how to hold them.
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.

best tip if our already get the principle, is to squat more before poping your ollie.Then put all weight on the your front foot.I Years back when struggling,  noticed I did no suqt enough.You'll see it's the key.

Like a nollie bs shuv or like a switch bs shuv? I often do the switch bs shuv out because I kind of have to due to having my weight in the wrong position. But whatever shuv you're talking about, just do it a few times standing still or just starting in the noseslide position on a ledge. Super easy.

Btw I have fs noselides down now, for me it really is exactly the same as ollieing into a fs crook, BUT turning my shoulders slightly when I ollie.

It's like when you're trying any crook and accidentally go into noseslide because you turned your shoulders a tiny bit, and those are always the best noseslides for me.

imo the best way to learn the trick is learn it slappy. wax the side of the curb where the wheels are gonna touch BIG TIME. if this is not waxed you will just stick like crazy.

a lot of the trick of noseslides in general is just wasting as little momentum as possible when transitioning from rolling to sliding. that means reducing the amonut of movement required going from position A to B. thats why you want to ride as paralell as possible for this trick.

i like to have my toes going over so that there is no way my heel can drag on the ledge.

i find turning out to fakie is way easier to start with.

I only have one thing to add that hasn’t been said already, all of which are great tips. For me the thing I think about is the balance between the ball of my front foot and heel. Usually, that is the point where you can fine tune the slide vs slipping out or sticking.
