    When I was learning what really helped me was to really work on carving hard to help initiate the slide. What also helped me was weight distribution, trying to keep weight off of my pushing foot, almost leaning back. The best advice I can give you is go out and skate! Practice!

    The most helpful thing is to find someone to skate with.
    Nothing taught me better than seeing it done in person.
    Hit up the regional forums to find skaters in your area.

    Secondly, using the search function will yield many, many threads dedicated to people asking the exact same question as you.

    the thing that helped me a lot was to turn your head and shoulder in the direction you want to slide because it kinda forces your whole body to rotate

    Sliding isn't proportional to strength.

    Yes, the back foot does exert some force to get the board to move, but MOST importantly is your weight distribution between your feet.
    It shifts as you slide....it takes time to develop your balance.

    Wear some knee pads, and go faster. Might sound crude, but it works.

    If you're doing a heelside (Id suggest starting with these), push several times, go straight for 30 ft. on a mildly steep hill, carve toe side, bend your knees past 90 degrees lean into your heels, rotate your back foot and front shoulder simotaneously while acting as if your trying to sit down on the asphalt. I've been teaching my little sister who is 13 and she is getting it, she just needs to BEND her KNEES more and COMMIT to leaning ALL her WEIGHT INTO THE TURN/SLIDE. If she could break the wheels loose after her fist day learning you can do it.

    I didn't think I could do it at first.. I would put all my force into my back foot and nothing would happen. Just make sure you have some speed, carve hard, push with your foot using the rail, don't get scared

    Recently learned to do it, not so long but it's still there,

    What I did was to start learning the technique on less gripier surfaces, when I had the technique I brought it out to real surfaces.
    Carve real hard and get real low on the board and lean back!

    You will get there, trust me!
    Oh I thought this was a cooking forum?

    for speed checks and standies how do you suck the board back in to go straight i just go out in the slide and either stop or go in that direction any suggestions?

    All I can really say is make sure your turning your shoulders and your head in the direction you want to go. So just turn your shoulders and your head back to the normal way you ride. Just keep practicing and once you get the feel of it once, it will become a little easier.
