Try to rotate your body around your inside foot (the foot on the inside of your turn), pretend it's just a regular flat ground railflip. Make sure you hope high enough to do the 180 before you land on the rail.

As soon as you turn blindside, turn your head and look the way you're going, and when the foot you're swinging around hits, hop up and turn your other foot so they hit at almost the same time. I can railflip both ways, but I land blindside more often.

A regular railflip is where you turn the direction you're facing (turning frontside). A blindside is where you turn towards the direction you're back is facing (turning backside). Any railflip is frontside to backside grind, but whether it's a frontside or blindside railflip depends on the direction you turn.
