Title: Mini ramps. Who else loves them?
Post by: Ankle_Lift on August 18, 2018, 12:25:21 PM
Anyone else ride a lot of mini ramp? Anyone have any tips or little nuggets of advice? What's your favorite miniramp trick? What's your go to trick?

Right now in trying to learn fakie pivot to fakie, even better if I can grind it and come back out fakie. I'm also trying to nose stall, then drop back in, but pivot out back to regular while coming down the ramp.

I like watching Ben Schroeder skate n then hitting my local five foot mini. Itís the easiest the warm up on and probably one of the more meditative feelings in skating. I feel like I overdo these tricks, but alley oop grinds and and grab grinds are fun

I skate way too much mini. Great way to warm your legs up! Go to is a good old smith, they feel lovely. Got a couple of back feeble fakies on a 2 foot quarter last week, so I'm hoping I can balls up and get one on the mini.

Everything switch on a miniramps is the best. Switch fs 5-0s feel so awkward.

Mirror runs are fun, do run regular then try to get them all switch.
Could only fakie bump ollie to get into a switch feeble so had to learn how to nollie into a regular feeble.

I used to skate a lot more mini than I have in the past years ( now due to lack of a good ramp in town)
I always love watching Drehobl skate a mini best grind combos and style.
Front 5-0 fakie ( revert )
Feeble fakie ( pretty much anything to fakie feels great)
Fakie nosepick
270 nosepick fakie
A real nice front rock on steep ramps are great.
FSO.
I could go on but.... all mini ramp is a good time with the right crew

I didn't skate a mini ramp or park or anything until I had already been skating for awhile and it was like going to a different planet. I used to be able to do some flip tricks in them but not anymore, now all I can do is bs tail, disaster, and noseblunt. And that's it. Can't even axle stall. Don't make no sense.

Everything I know on tranny I learned on the mellow ass mini at 3rd Lair. Such a good way to get comfortable with trying new things.
