The actual tail stall is like dropping in in reverse. It takes a bit of guts to pull those wheels off the ramp the frist few time. Once you tap the tail and bring them back down you will see it isn't that tough.
You body doesn't really move during this trick. Your legs just twist. The back leg extends and taps the tail. The front leg bends up and lets the wheel up and off the ramp.

When you have enough speed.
If you are not able to get up and out of the ramp to stall. Just tap the tail and drop back in. With practice and increased strength you will be able to pump up to stall.
Pump the ramp a lot. Learn how to get speed and how to keep it. It may take a few days or even weeks to get the leg strength you need to keep speed. Just tap the tail at first. Get better and stall wheb you build the strength.
