Ho to Back Tail with Barrio Mike

On this episode of How To's Days; Lurkville's Barrio Mike shows you how to throw down a proper back tail on transition.

Ho to Back Tail with Barrio Mike

A Back Tail is performed by riding parallel to the coping. The skateboarder then does an ollie and turns the board 90 degrees. They then land on the ledge with the nose of the board sliding on top of it. This can be done frontside or backside. The skateboarder can then come off the ledge either regular or fakie (backwards). The back tail is similar to the noseslide only when turning 90 degrees the tail of the board is landed on the edge of the ledge/rail.
