Learning frontside 50-50s will make this trick a lot easier, so practise those first.
Approach the ramp on a slight angle as if you were doing a frontside turn or 50-50.
As you get close to the top, use your back foot to lift the nose and get your back trucks on the coping.
When your trucks hit the coping, drop your front foot down and point your toes while still leaning on your back foot, to force the grind.
As your grind slows, use your back foot to push yourself off the coping and back into the ramp.
