A Railstand is where you flip your board up and onto the side so that it stands on the edge.

If the Griptape is facing forward, this is called a Toeside Railstand, if the grip tape is facing backwards, it is called a Heelside Railstand. The railstand is also sometimes called a Primo or Primo Stall, but technically, a primo is where slide along the ground while in a railstand.


Check out Daniel Trujillo's excellent video on the subject.
