I don't know what it is but I just can't seem to keep my balance on a pvc shotgun rail, could it be because they're such thin skis and they're mounted pretty far back? I manage it about half the time, spent a few hours practising, gonna keep at it but any tips would be great.
Just because they are mounted so far back doesn't mean u should slide on the toes of your feet... You need to get more of your foot (weight) on the rail even though you have so much more tip than tail on your skis... get your feet centered over the rail, right now your sliding wayyy too far out on your toes.
Bend your knees, absorb the rail, and look at the end as well. If you stare at the end of the rail that's most likely where you'll end up. Bending your knees more help to lock you onto the rail and keep your balance better.

alot of it is witch way your leaning, since your falling backward you should lean far forward. and it might just be the video but it seems like your getting alot of air onto the pipe which could be an issue.
there's many things in teaching someone to slide a rail. but the golden rule is look at the end of the rail. your body follows your head pretty much.
-feet shoulder width apart
-shoulders parallel to the end of the rail
-steady, even pop, land with the rail under your boots
-even weight on both feet, do not lean back especially
-full 90 on, skis fully perpendicular to rail
-don't jump too high and land hard on the rail, just a steady fluid pop
-LOOK AT THE END OF THE RAIL
once you start practicing these things they become robotic.
