hang heels

A hotdogging longboard-only variation on the noseride, usually performed after hanging ten, where the surfer does a quick half-turn and drapes one or both heels off the tip of the board while riding backwards. Extremely difficult and sometimes dismissed as showy by longboard purists. First performed in the mid-'60s. Gary Propper of Florida, along with California's Dru Harrison, were two early masters of hanging heels. Also called "heels over."
