View Full Version : My tutorial on riding the rail (railride)

5th April 2008, 11:06 PM
I found there was no good description on the Web of how to ride the forward railride, so wrote my own. It's old boards, but no reason why wouldn't work on some of the Starboard planks.
Here's the result:


Also, a more general article on railrides :

http://www.knowledge.lbwindsurfing.com/longboard-freestyle/2007/longboard-freestyle-on-the-railride-rail-ride/ (http://www.knowledge.lbwindsurfing.com/longboard-freestyle/2007/longboard-freestyle-on-the-railride-rail-ride/)

I consider this to be the definite "how-to" article on the topic for now, I will write about other railrides some other time. Stern-first, clew-first, leeward rails, etc.

Will redo the article with Starboard videos and planks as soon as I find someone crazy enough to lend me his/her Go.
