skiP.E.I.Which shoulder are you looking over, which foot is forward on the rail and which way do you want to spin?
jjdsteezeyou answered only one of the 3 questions he asked
supersquidI interpreted that as looking over left shoulder, left foot forward, spinning left.
Basically a switch lip from the left side of the rail (looking down it)
Op its scary at first, but the faster you go the easier it is (atleast for downrails it is). The farther down the rail you land means the greatest height difference between you landing and your take off point. This makes it easier to get your tips over. You dont have to disaster it but going a little faster could be the difference between clipping the rail and getting em over.
Its also important to lean back a little bit when you pop, that way when you pop you switch nollie a little bit and get those tips up and over the rail.
I like to do a few lip ons before I do switch lips when im skiing. I always concentrate on jumping forward and really getting my tails up and over the rail. Then you do switch lip and its basically the same thing but backwards.
jjdsteezeare you trying to go tails over first or tips over?
CalumSKIik this isnt really relevant but switch lip 2 on tips under is hella dope
jjdsteezeone trick id still love to learn. look so sick
jjdsteezeLeft Left Left could also be tails over though.
supersquidSounds like OP hasnt really hit a rail switch yet. I dont know about you, but me and all my friends learned switch lip first. Switch tails is way scarier, IMO.
OP should really clarify though, his explanation was vague and his grammar sounded like it was translated using google.
Dyllxni am having alot of trouble hitting a rail switch please help i always get on eski caught up and eat it
ZiggyZagSkzzQuestion after watching countless slvsh videos I still don't know the answer to: so sw tails is when your tails go over the rail first and sw lip is your tips. But going forward lip on is tails over first right?
