Ivebeen wanting to board more seriously Ive had my board for almost a year but just now gettin into it ibomb huge hills but cant slide help?
Just grow balls and try it. It's just a mental block in your head.
Just keep practicing! If your not sure you gonna make it to the bottom just foot brake before you get to fast
What wheels do you have? Whats the hardness ?? For slides you got to have 85a and above, and the shape of wheel must be specific. Also board length depends, and your truck angle. ;-)
Start off slow when you're practicing and gradually get faster.

Work out 🏋🏿 more and practice lots 💪🏿💪🏿😜😜💪🏻🏋🏿😈
Slides are a huge advantage they can help you and act like sort of a break try and practice slides first on small hills not stand up slides but normal ones with your hand on the ground learn both sides
Get gloves to help, it helped me in case I were to fall too also get better wheels like butterballs or orangatangs.
Keep your body streat and bend your nees a little bit thath wil help
It can be a bit scary, but my advice would be to start on a flat area and try to build up speed. When you have enough speed try turning little by little until you have power. Finally, go for it. (Make sure you have gear for protection, and your going to fall... a lot, so don’t get down, just try agin.
u should watch tactics boardshop they have a lot of great videos it can help u decide what wheels and board r best for sliding and watch some YouTube videos abt sliding definitely get some gloves
