So ive been working on my coleman slide before the snow comes, AND I CANT DO IT. Im riding a cantillated tesseract with caliber 1s, venom barrels (88a SHR roadside, 90a boardside), and orangatang 83a stimulus. Whenever I try to slide, I end up losing traction but only barely, and it turns into a vert hard carve. HOW DO I SLIDE IT!
it feels super weird at first but make yourself push switch as much as possible. then once your a little comfy try pushing off and doing a slide switch. and when sliding remember DISTRIBUTE YOUR WEIGHT CORRECTLY. and I've found the lower you are to the ground the easier it is to control the slide. remember practice, practice, practice one step at a time
that's what normally happens to me too, but breaking traction is a good start i figure.
Are you setting up the carve?
