for square stuff, it's a little harder to balance, just lean more over the object and that should help

oh ok.


That makes more sense.


I'm just not fluent in "IM lingo" or whatever the old people call it.


And yeah, the only round rail at my park goes over an oversized 5-stair. And I can barely grind a flat rail!

I'm not interested in flopping my body all over the stairs

honestly there really isnt a set up made for square rails. pretty much all skate frames' H-blocks are rounded for round rails. i would suggest some xjado frames for square rails. when i wore them they pretty much locked onto everything

I wasn't aware that xsjado frames were good for locking onto square rails. I may be getting xsjado frames for xmas, and I've always wanted to grind some rails. unfortunately where I'm from there aren't many rails, just big stair sets, which is ok in a way, cus I can do huge sets, but grinding is a bit of a problem lol. But i do know that leaning over the rail a bit more whilst grinding does help.

most grinds are easier with speed. sometimes its harder to lock but its easier to keep your balance if you have speed.

and i've figured out that most people do either a soul grind or a mizou the best. (for example i'm a mizou person i can mizou anything all day. but my friend is a sould person and a soul is the first grind he will try on a new rail) so try both of those first.

www.toxboe.net is a good place to learn how to do grinds.
