more than sliding I would put my arm down & pivot almost into the snake. all you have to do is lay down in the blind spot, then you can crawl into the bunker. don't dive to get into a better position, do it to stay alive
commit, can't always be graceful though.. this weekend I went to knee slide on a new field of what must have been concrete from about a 20y full sprint and my knees hit with my weight back and went absolutely nowhere with my forearm then head first into the bunker but I came out shooting, stayed alive and got the kill and then got back into my bunker to check my self and figure out why in the world I did that.
If I would have tried to slide earlier, I would have had to crawl to my bunker or worse stop standing up. Sliding is for stopping and getting a playing position fast.
I'll admit turf is nice, you can dive over snake heels up no problem but I think most of us practice on dirt or perhaps there was grass on your sliding zone at one point in time.
