PostSubject: How to do casper-slides and darkslides    Fri Nov 02, 2018 9:58 am

i´ve seen that this site has everyday it´s visitors, so maybe it´s useful for someone.

first of all you´ll need a deck with a worn out riptape like this

1. casper-slides: you can do it maybe with a half kickflip, but for me, this doesn´t work.
i ollie a littlebit higher than the obstacle is, into a manual. but before i land it, the index-finger pushes downward. then i enjoy the slide, and bring the board back with a shove-it motion. if you do the shove-it motion a littlebit harder, you can do a 360 flip out for extra style points wink  
if you land the manual first and push after that downward into the casper, you are on the right track - now you´ll need just better timing. my axles are very soft and it worked, but harder ones could help in the beginning.

2. darkslide: you can do it with a half kickflip, which is backside easier or heelflip, which works  frontside better. i prefer the heelflip-way because it feels so smooth, and it´s easier for me. if you´ll try heelflips, but your board is doing a varial-heel motion every single time, don´t cry wink , you´ll learn it, and for this trick it´s  a good thing (otherwise for those who can do proper heelflips - make a half fs heel onto the rail). so flip it halfway or 1x and a half (then you´ll have a heelflip darkslide - congratulation happy )  slide and relax. at the end of the rail push the board simply a littlebit forward, and the rest of your riptape should make it flip back (forward of course)

that´s  all for now, have a nice day happy

sorry for my bad english jocolor
