9. HEELSIDE SLIDING
Switch from toes to heel – if all the weight is on the edge wheels you won’t slide so lift up a bit onto your center wheels. Once you hit the side of the road, turn your eyes and shoulder to the other side of the road. Once you made the turn put the weight on the edge wheels again. Something a bit steeper can help with this move.
10. TOESIDE SLIDING
Same as the heel coming from heel to toe and then moving from your edge wheel to the centers as you make the turn unweighting your body and turning your eyes and shoulder to the other side of the road. Then secure your edge wheels again on your toes.
11. LINK YOUR SLIDES
Almost the same as linking carves. Start with your least comfortable sliding turn as you’ll have less speed. Lift your weight, go to the center wheel and use your eyes and shoulders as you link the turns looking from each side of the road. Find a mellow wide road and use the whole of the road.
12. FRONTSIDE 180° SLIDE
Start like a turn, lift up your weight and put it onto the center wheels, then turn your shoulder and then push onto your heel, keep turning your shoulder 180 degrees and then turn your shoulder and eyes back again and jump off the board.
13. BACKSIDE 180° SLIDE
Same technique as your heel 180. This time you need to switch looking from one side to the other so you’re not looking uphill for too long. Try to stay in the switch position for a bit longer to get comfortable with it.
14. FRONTSIDE OVERSLIDE
Now we go from a 180 heel slide to find the balance and turn it back again using your shoulder to bring it back. You can play with the degrees and reduce to 160 to make a nice movement.
