''Its important to learn the darkslide first'' sounds strange to me, backroll handdrags have worked fine for me for quite some time, but a darkslide just doesn't work for me, I find a hand drag much easier..

I think he means this for the kite movement, which is the same for most surface tricks, like Darkslide, Jesus Walk etc.

But, this is an Inverted Backroll Hand Plant. A normal version of this trick is not inverted, you basically just lift your legs and your hand slides along.

The inverted version is very stylish as shown by Steven 👍🏻

Do you have a video of a hand drag backroll for comparison ? (Not inverted)

But just saw the first one is inverted too...not as stylish as the one from Steven though...need to correct it asap.

But the other ones are not invetted...there are several videos.
