Backside Smith

Chris Cole teaches you a pro favorite, the stylish Backside Smith. He shows you the exact angle in your approach to get the right pop and placement on the ledge, helping you lock in the two key points. With these two contact points dialed, it’s then all about the specific weight placement Cole shows you - this gets you locked in to grind the entire ledge and the balance point to add your touch, getting that stylish dip.
