In Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, the Tailslide is one of the grind tricks that you can perform. As long as you have a surface you can grind on, you should be able to Tailslide. Below, we’ve listed the buttons you need to press in order to perform a Tailslide in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2.

  • PlayStation 4: Ollie up to the ledge/rail you want to grind, then Right + Triangle.
  • Xbox One: Ollie up to the ledge/rail you want to grind, then Right + Y.
  • PC: Ollie up to the ledge/rail you want to grind, then Right + ▲.

Note that you can crouch to pick up speed before hitting the ledge or rail that you want to Tailslide grind to extend the Tailslide and build up a better score. While running through challenges, you’ll use the Tailslide to grind the Venice Ledge in Venice Beach.

If you’re wondering “which ledge is the Venice Ledge?” we’ve included a helpful video from YouTuber GuidingLight that’ll show you where the Venice Ledge is, and what it looks like when you perform a successful Tailslide.
