50-50 or Smith?
« on: June 09, 2018, 09:51:32 PM »


is it a 50-50 or smith? or does this trick have its own name (like how a nose + tail slide = nail slide)? my initial thought was smith but now i'm having some doubt as i don't think both trucks should be grinding for it to count as a smith. does it matter that the rail is a bit lower than the ledge? let's say that the rail is the same height as the ledge, and there's still the small gap that exists between the two, and he gets both trucks grinding, one truck on the rail and the other truck on the ledge. it's like a split 50-50.

as seen in one of the montages from transworld feedback. and yeah, i realize this shit is almost 20 years old now, but whatever. it's late, i'm nostalgic, and i'm trying to ride the coattails of the "fakie flip or half cab flip" thread. also, who is harley hogue? http://skately.com/library/people/harley-hogue

some variations of it done by michael pulizzi in this edit that thrasher recently posted. kinda shows what i was trying to explain in my initial post, since these were done on flatbars. to me, the grinding surfaces being on the same level complicates the categorization of the trick (no longer gives it the illusion of being a nose grind or overcrook), and further necessitates the need for its own name.

tail- and noseslide combined is a bananaslide so maybe this could be a bananagrind?
