Backflips aren't hard, just scary.
I voted switch 180 grabs, but I'd say grabbed switch bs180's are harder to learn than (bs) boardslides, switch fs180's aren't but fs boardslides are by far the hardest.

or maybe switch bs lips?:rolleyes:

I did some backflips on an air bag, but i'm still scared to do them on solid land
I tried to backflip without a board just to see if i can shift my weight fast enough or if i jump right and I ended doing a faceplant. Here's the result:

I learned 360 quite easy.I'm not quite familiar with trick names but if switch 180 grabs means to grab your board while doing a 180/360, um that was easy too.
So i'll go with board slides and grinds.

P.S. I really want to learn that backflip you can do on a half pipe.

i can back flip on a tramoline easy and i have strapped my board on and tried it without my trucks but i had a had time getting the hang time i needed to finish the flip. i am sure i can do it with more speed and a real jump but i am holding out for a foam pit before i try it

Backflips aren't hard, you just gotta commit and know that you're gonna kick the tricks ass. Board slides on the other hand, can leave you with half of your manhood in a split second... Egghhh

Depends on what you mean by "Hardest" - it's not just technical difficulty, it's also about the consequences for getting it wrong.

Tech difficulty wise, yeah a bs slide may be harder than a flip, and a fs slide almost certainly is, but I reckon a flip trumps both in terms of risk.
That's for mountain boards - on a snowboard slides are much easier as without trucks you can just shifty out from a 50:50.

I beleive (from playing tony hawk) that it is the other way round and whether it is bs or fs is determined by if you are facing the rail or not and that a fs board slide is when you can see the rail and jump on and cant see where you going and a bs is if you cant see the rail ( its behind you when you jump on) and then go down it seeing where your going. And if you are facing the rail and you go down seeing where you're going it is a lip slide and visa versa.
Clever people please correct me if i am wrong.

nope, the other way 'round.
It's all about how you approach the rail and the terminology comes from riding trannies; for a bs boardslide you have the rail behind you on approach, as you would when hitting the backside wall in a halfpipe. For fs boardslides the rail's in front of you.

wether you get onto the rail by putting your nose over it (board) or tail (lip). lips are scarey on a down rail cause you can easily catch your back rail/wheels.

all those tricks are pretty hard to learn (only backied on a snowboard and got it all wrong), but if its about learning them to comp standard genrally i'd say non sketchy boardslides good looking get my vote.

I thought lip slides were like doing boardslides but when your board is like angled up on the edge of your board more so than the board... But eh, I don't really know why I think that.

Backflips are based on numbers of proprioceptors in your body. If U have them by birth, you will know what to do easily, but if not, you will lose your control when being upside down and block your movement. So it's a easy trick, if you are biult for it. 360 and other rotations are pure skill, switch 180 also, but it's easier. And board slides, well they can be tricky, not that easy like on snowboard, and from skateboard you can jump any time... here are big wheels who can stuck, but it's still easier than 360 I think...

The F/S boardslide was the first trick I did...

I'd never rode switch before then.
