by John Johnston ; Updated September 22, 2017

"Skate 3" is a skateboarding video game developed by EA, available on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game consists of a variety of single- and multi-player challenges ranging through a variety of tasks and competitions. To win these competitions you must perform a number of difficult tricks, for which you receive a score. The Darkslide is a skateboard trick that requires you to grab the board face-up, jump, and then land on a rail with the tape side of the board facing down.

Load "Skate 3" on your games console. Select a player to carry out the darkslide.

Move your skater to a ledge to grind on, using your left analog stick. This can be any object that you can grind.

Hold the "Right Trigger" on your Xbox 360 controller and "R2" button on your PlayStation 3. Once you are in the air, press the "Y/Triangle" button to perform a 360 flip.

Press "Right Bumper" button on the Xbox 360 controller and "R1" on the PlayStation 3 controller when the board is upside down during the trick.

Keep holding "Right Bumper" on the Xbox 360 controller and "R1" on the PlayStation 3 controller until you reach the end of the grind rail.
