Approach: Here is how you do: Drop in switch, coming up with your back facing the rail.

Takeoff: Clear your tail over the rail before you start spinning the 270 so your tail doesn’t clip. Think about doing a half-Cab to a front board.

Maneuver: Land in front board. Keep your chest facing the landing as long as possible—that way it's easier to take it back to regular.

Landing: It shouldn’t be any different than doing a front board to regular, but the longer the rail is the harder it is to bring back to regular.
