How to Backside Disaster

Now you’ve managed to dial those frontside disasters, let Josh ‘Manhead’ Young show you how to get to grips with the backside variation!

Again, it’s going to be beneficial to be able to do Fakie Rocks before attempting the Back Disaster. For a Backside Disaster you’re leading in with the front shoulder, this time dip in towards the coping rather than away from the coping.

When you see your front wheels approaching the coping, turn your shoulder backside, away from the coping, pop a little ollie, swing your back leg around so your board does a full 180

Land on the coping in the middle.

Then you descend Fakie Rock technique to rock over your back wheels, and get back onto the ramp, and ride away.
