Front lips are back in fashion, and they’re actually not too difficult a trick to get on lock. Although it’s definitely a little scary having to pop over the rail, you have the advantage that you can see the rail clearly the whole time and you’re popping off your toeside edge.
Make sure you don’t approach too close to the rail and once again, get a good clean pop off your edge so you can get your board above the rail before turning it 90 degrees. Hooking up and landing shin first on a rail is never fun, although if you’re doing massive gap ones like Pat Moore here, you’d should probably be worrying more about the possibility of dying rather than getting a boo boo on your shin.
