Join The Captain Jay Nowman as he takes you through a step by step guide of how to Backside Noseslide on a Streetboard.
Step 1: Find the right height of curb.
The best way to learn a backside noseslide is to find a curb that's low enough so that your wheels are only slightly off the ground. This will make it easier to get into the position and stay on the curb.
Step 2: Practice getting into the position standing still.
Once you've found a good curb, stand in front of it and practice getting into the backside noseslide position. To do this, place your front foot on the edge of the curb and your back foot slightly behind you. Then, lean forward and shift your weight over the curb.
Step 3: Approach the curb with a decent amount of speed.
When you're ready to try the trick moving, approach the curb with a decent amount of speed. If you go too slowly, you won't slide. Come at the curb at a very slight angle, so that you have to turn less when locking into the noseslide.
Step 4: Lock into the noseslide position.
As you get closer to the curb, jump up and bring your front foot up to the edge of the curb. Then, shift your weight over the curb and lean forward. Your blunt plates should be flat against the curb.
Step 5: Keep your weight over the curb and your back foot slightly behind you.
Once you're locked into the noseslide position, keep your weight over the curb and your back foot slightly behind you. This will help you stay on the curb for longer.
Step 6: Come out of the trick the way you came in.
When you're ready to come out of the trick, shift your weight back and jump off the curb. It's best to come out the way you came in, rather than coming out fakie.
