STEP 1: It is essential to note that approach and timing are very important when doing a Rock-n-Roll Grind. Ride towards the rail, with speed under control.|
STEP 2: Have a good take-off so you will stay balanced and in control. Make an Ollie to reach the rail's surface. |
STEP 3: Move your board in such a way that it will be perpendicular to the rail. In order to maintain balance, make sure that the middle of the board is on the surface, while the nose and tail are on either side. |
STEP 4: Simply grind like you would if you are just on snow. Keep your board across the rail. Stay balanced and just go with the grind. |
STEP 5: Make another Ollie as you reach the end of the rail. Have perfect timing to avoid an early exit. |
STEP 6: Land with both feet and then ride away. |
You should do a feature article on your animator!
This makes it look easier than it is...
Keep your weight perpendicular to the surface of the box or rail with your board flat. If you lean back too much you will be on your ass quicker than you can say "impact shorts". Lean forward too much and you'll perform a sick face-plant.
In short, don't use your edges like you would on snow.
like hielan says, it says nothing about to much weight forward and your hi siding and to much weight backwards and your glad you bought them impact shorts.
A rock and roll is a vert trick from skating and requires a skater to roll up over the coping and stall on the base of their board, then re-enter the tranny. This section is describing a backside boardslide and maybe should be edited???
this animator you have is perfect for helping out beginers with tricks.
Amazing animation job, was really helpful when i was still learning thanks a lot
plzzzz put some new animatinons
Looks easy. Last time I did it it was a horrible accident. went toeside, leaned to far forward, hit my knee on the box, and hit my elbow on the ground. it kinda sounded like whoa, bam, crash, ouch!It was kinda funny>lol.
This is actually a frontside boardslide, I broke my nose learning it so it''s not as easy as it sounds, practice on short rails so if you mess up you wiil hopesully just hit snow.
not as easy as it sounds....i leaned back to
not as easy as it sounds....i leaned back to far and fell on the box.BROKE MY LEG IN THE PROCESS..DONT LEAN BACK!!!!!
THIS IS CALLED A BOARDSLIDE. ITS A FRONTSIDE BOARDSLIDE AS HE IS FACING FORWARD.
Actually, to all you people who think this is a frontside board, it's not. This is a backside board, when you are sliding with your heel edge facing the end of the box. A frontside board would be when your toe edge is facing the end of the box. Just to inform you all...
this is a frontside boardslide not a rock-n-roll. That is for skateboarding not snowboarding. Backside boardslides are harder than frontside boardslides.
This is a BACKSIDE boardslide.....it's something to do with how you exit. If it were a frontside boardslide you'd slide looking over your shoulder and turn out frontside.
it''s called a BACKSIDE boardslide in snowboarding, cuz he''s facing forward :P
whether a grind/slide is frontside or backside is related to the approach angle, whether your front or back is towards the grinding surface before you start the grind.
This is actually a frontside lipslide. He approached the rail Frontside (rail in front of rider) and hit it with tail edge swinging counter-clockwise (for regular riders). It''s similar to the backside boardslide but with the approach on the opposite side of the rail. This is not even close to a frontside boardslide except for the approach. People are confusing the tricks with the 180 aerial maneuvers. Any grind trick is considered frontside or backside depending on where the obstacle is in reference (in front of, or behind the behind the rider). That being said, they were the first tricks I learned on a rail but not easy to learn at all. You can, and most assuredly will slip out the first few times. My suggestion is use your own rail with a very slight height to learn the trick (makes bails easier to handle)
what if he hit it fakie, then you can fuck your explanation. Im just kidding... you pretty much hit the nail on the head
what if he hit it fakie, then you can **** your explanation. Im just kidding... you pretty much hit the nail on the head
It''s backside boardslide. The orgin of this name is from skateboarding where you rarely ollie front of the rail/curb. It depends how you approach obstacle/rail - when you have it behind your back its backside and when you have it in front of your face it''s frontside (it reefers to all jib tricks and all skateboarding grinds/slides boardslides lipslides 50-50s etc.)Remember it finally!
i haven''t tried the rock and roll grind but i have done normal grinds. a few important things are, DON''T lean back!!! make sure you have enough speed (not fun to stop in the middle of a grind rail, or atleast the ones mad river has)dont try to do an ollie the first time you try a grind (or rock n roll grind).
Nevermind what step 4 says... "Simply grind like you would if you are just on snow." If I turn my board perpendicular to the fall line to face downhill while riding on snow, then Iím going to shift my weight slightly back and lift my toes a bit. If I do the same thing while on a rail, then Iím going to need a new butt bone. DONíT grind as if you were on snow, DO grind as if youíre on a railÖ meaning keep your front-to-back weight totally centered. This happens to be the hardest part of learning this trick because you have to re-teach yourself to slide on rails differently that you would slide on snow.
As Ctrides already said, a Rock''N''Roll is a Skateboarding Trick used in a Half Pipe.
That''s a FS Lipslide. (NOT Boardslide, because you''re turning your Tail over the rail and not your Nose)
hey good animation but this is a boardslide rather than a rock and roll which is a vert trick for skateboarding plus how do u do it goofy??
The first time I tried this i put to much weight on the back and fell backward hitting my shoulder blade and head on the rail. But I''m a teenager so guess what I wanted to do after that? Yep, tried it again and nailed it. It was an incredible feeling. Amazing animation and awesome steps. Thank You for helping the Beginners explore this amazing sport and incredibly fun experience.
This is clearly a Mocha into a Japan Air, with a method tucked in some where in between, as he exits the rail he performs a Emmy and rides away clean.
Thanx, nice animation! By the way, how it is you call it slide not grind gals, guess you can see here frontside lipgrind, snowboarding is not skateboarding where you got trucks so these are rather grinds, kisses...to Emmy...:*
You can even bone one leg out in front more, which looks cool on the rail!
No, G, the way you described that is in skateboarding... this dude is doing a backside boardslide...if it were frontside his back would be pointing down the rail and he''d be looking over his shoulder
Love the argument going on here but im gonna be even more critical and say its a bloody FrontSide LipSlide! Thats how the animation looks anyway.
Oh and as for the FrontSide/BackSide thing.... Its where the Rail/Box is in relation to you when you start the trick. Same terminology applies for Snowboarding and Skateboarding.
Dont belive me??? Try searching it in YouTube and just see which ones are consistent with this explanation. btw some will of course be incorrect.
Hope this helps
not sure if anyone said this (didn''t feel like reading through all of that)
if your edges are sharp,detune them! otherwise you will be more likely to fall forward or backward or face plant.
