How To Do Backside Tailslides

Words by Timmy Reyes

“This seems to work most of the time for me. I just got lucky with this one. I was out of control.”¿Timmy Reyes

Step One: Start your snap off the lip on the steepest section of the wave.

Step Two: Bank off the lip, but instead of carving off the top, start to slide your tail out.

Step Three: As your board gets away from you, lean forward and put your hand on your board for stability.

Step Four: Lean forward on your front foot, while taking pressure off of your back foot.

Step Five And Six: To finish, stomp the tail and ride it out.
