BedBugDougwhat does tails mean
opposite of lip (which is just short for lipslide). put simply, lip slide is when you spin away from the rail as you get on. when talking about people hitting a rail normal, lipslide is generally considered harder cause you have to pop your tails over the rail as you spin 90 (or more) and get on
for getting on rails switch, people are kinda split. some people thing switch lip is harder/scarier, some people think switch tails is harder/scarier.
say im going switch into a down rail and im going to hit it from the left side of the rail. if i spin sw left and bring my noses over the rail as i 90 and get on the rail, that's switch lip. if i spin right so my tails go over the rail first as i 90 on, that's switch tails
