How to Tailslide 270 Out
Adding a 270 out on your rail tricks can look sick! However, there's a few concepts that you'll have to master to make sure you're progressing safely and efficiently.
The physics between a frontside 360 and a tailslide 270 out are very similar. To practice and get used to the motion:
- Stand on a carpet and spin a full frontside 360
- Now try jumping to a tailslide, continuing the rotation and flicking a 270 out at the end.
When practicing on the balance bar, start by doing a tailslide to fakie. This is an essential stepping stone. Using your balance bar:
- Wind up, Pop to your tail, continue the rotation through the trick, and come out switch.
As you progress onto practicing 270's out on the balance bar, remember that by opening up your body and carrying momentum through the trick you will have a much easier time finishing your spin.
The Key to stomping
The most common mistake happens just before you enter your slide. It is absolutely crucial to enter the slide while continually rotating. If any counter rotation is used, then it will be near impossible to flick the 270 out.
