Start off in a Heelside Railstand. This trick is usually done on the nose, so the Nose end of the board should be on your right side.

Figure 02
Position your right (back) foot farther forward with your arch over the right wheel. This will help your right foot transfer onto the Nose more easily. Once your right foot is positioned, start shifting your weight over to your left (front) foot.

Figure 08
You should now be balanced in the casper stance with all of your weight on your right (rear) foot.
Note: In a proper casper, your right (rear) foot should be completely resting on the nose and should not be touching the ground at all. Your left (front) foot should also never touch the ground during the duration of the casper. It may take some practice, and your feet can often touch the ground a little bit, but a no-touch capser (from either foot) is what you should be aiming for.
