So, I played my first day of airball last weekend. It was great! :D I was playing spot on! Superman dives? No problem! Sliding to my right on my left hip? No problem! Sliding to my left on my right hip? Houston, we have a problem. I couldn't do it. I don't know why, but I just couldn't. So, I am wondering... How did you all learn to slide to your weak side? Any tips as I try and perfect this skill? Thanks Techpb!

Any other input? I've tried practicing it just regularly and I just can't seem to get the mind set so that I can actually do it.

Literally just mirror however you right hip slide. Also practice sliding without dumping pods by accident like I do.

Start slowly and walk through each step.  Go faster and faster until it's second nature.

That's what she said. 

 

Nah, but thanks everyone on the input. I'll keep working on it.

Literally, it takes practice. Skills like sliding require repitition. Throw on your knee pads and/or slide shorts, go through the motions slowly at first. Build your confidence and muscle memory. Only way to go about it.

I always had troubles with superman slides.. just go out and do it. If you get hurt, youll see what you did wrong and fix it.

 

good luck man


there was this one time, when i cared what you thought.

oh... wait. No there wasn't.

What I did was lay on the ground on that side in a comfortable position. Then I would just try to jump into that position.

Just go Nike and Do It. Just do it. Over and over again. Do it until you get it. Theres no other way than simply doing it.
