Heelside Coleman Slide
Beginner
·
1655 riders can do it
A slide in which you place your palm on the road surface and go into a controlled drift, turning your board 90° to the direction of travel.
How do it
A move in which you place your palm (gloved) on the asphalt and go into a controlled drift, turning your bouard perpendicular to the direction of movement. To return to your original position, choose from a 180, switch or pendy.
1.
It's easiest to perform the coleman from a tuck, so place your front leg whichever way you find most comfortable, at about 45 degrees to the axis of the board. Your back leg should be parallel to the board, leaning on the edge or gas pedal.
2.
Once you're ready to perform the slide, bend your front leg at the knee, ending up with your leg parallel to the ground, standing on the entire foot. Turn your back foot on it's toe — you need to end up with either both your toe and heel on the board, or your heel hanging off — all with your foot laying on it's inner side. Also, move your back knee in front of your front leg shin, practically laying it down on the board.
3.
Place your hand on the ground, keeping most of your weight on your front leg, and turn your chest and shoulders perpendicular to your movement (make sure your support arm shoulders doesn't draw back, otherwise you'll be doing a 180 coleman), and push your back leg forward.
4.
Return to your original position by tucking your back leg and turning back your shoulders. When performing the trick, place your hand close to the board, so that your body remains over the board — otherwise, the slide will be hard to control.

I'm having some trouble, I think it's because my wheels are ultrasoft, or should I just push my back leg harder. Or I could get new wheels.

After you initiate the slide, do you still put pressure on your front heel or do you keep the board „even“?
