This month comes a neglected and under-appreciated staple: the frontside tailslide. As per the request by @Les_Zeppelin, this trick MUST be performed on transition. I realise that not everyone has ready access to a mini, so I will permit banks to be used. Extra points for a good screech.
Nice! I have been neglecting these for a while used to do them a lot. Looking forward to this.
Ooooo I have a bank for this, never had them on tranny.
Will try this tonight if I can
Not done one in probably 6-7 years but there’s a lot of ramps around here so will see if I can get one with wheel screech
Saffron Walden deep bowl?
I think I would actually pay money to see Hugo try this
I could do a crailslide which is way way easier than people think and a lot less dangerous on big stuff.
Think Lance Mountain called out the crailslide in a mag somewhere as being a shit trick because it’s so easy.
If I was warmed up and had Munson shouting at me I might be able to do a tailslide.
Got to find time to get out the house since have a newborn.
Sorry, a crailslide is unacceptable in this instance.
I’ve never actually tried to do a crailslide, so I might give one a go.
haha I’ve always found these pretty hard
last time i tried a crailslide it stuck and i was launched into the ramp all curled up like a pretzel. it’s definitely not a good body position to slam in
Ive done more crailslides on ramps than frontside tailslides so can confirm easier. Think last count is something like 3-0
Thankfully, I got Alan Glass to ask Lance about this and he officially rescinded the fatwa on crailslides!
I mean you’ve just got to look at Cardiel doing one to see it’s not just a “dork trick”!
I always found them way easier than a lien tailslide or even ollie tailslide, as you’re locked in and can’t get off becasue your arm’s wrapped round your leg!
Wasnt it something like “crails are an easy vert trick but people do them in pools and pretend theyre hard” or am i misremembering some other quote?
Weather has ruined this one! I want to do one on concrete
Seeing as mine was the only submission, I guess win again!
For next month’s challenge I set a fs tailslide on tranny or bank
I haven’t forgotten about this, just struggling to find a transition small enough to do one on
