front shoves?  i can do them and have been able to forever, ive done them on hips and down shit but on flat no matter what i do it won't make the full rotation, it will spin like 160, causing me to do a funky tic tac.

WHAT DO I DO

front foot with your toes hanging off the side of the deck, just behind the bolt....  back foot at the heelside edge of the tail.....  scoop it back hard your front foot just waits to catch the deck.... make sure you jump backwards too.... 

i my bs pop shoves suck but my fs ones are fine....

i dunno my friends find fs pop shoves impossible but are doable switch....

It took me 6 years to do this tricks, and I do it exactly this way.  This man knows what he's talking about.

get good back 50-50s, now go parrallel to it and keep your shoulders parrallel too, once you get right above it with both trucks swing your tail around, it's hard to explain the actual process but once the position was explained to me i got them down

i learned them xmas last year, the greatest present of them all  :)

backside bonelesses on transition anyone? this shi tis so scary. it seems like one of those committing tricks, you have to or youre getting your shit jacked. ive landed a few on my back truck first and wheelied down the rest of the transition, and it was scary as fuck. other times i trip over my own feet and just body jar it. I WANNA DO IT

switch front shuv crooks (or back nosegrind, same thing)? i know its kind of a wack thing to ask for a tip on a trick like this, but i really feel like there is just something i'm missing. i guess i don't really need a "how to" but more like a tip or how you think about it i guess. i've been trying them a ton, and i'll occasionally get into it, but something always seems like i'm kinda blowing it. actually that is how i feel about regular ones too, so if you have a tip on that, i'll take it as well! thanks.

Okay, I know this is lame, but powerslides.

I set them up by putting my front foot just in front of the bolts and my back foot on the tail, and every time I try to do them I end up reverting.  I can't get this shit to slide at all.  Shit is embarrassing.  Please help.

find some smooth flooring, preferably marble....  i keep my both my feet over the back and front bolts with weight centered over the both of them....  get some speed and twist your deck frontside so you are sliding on your wheels, then twist back....

i dont know how else to explain it, powersliding is more of a feel thing than instructions.....

im not the best at this trick but i can tell you its all about how your facing when your doing it try looking straight, like your doing a fs blunt but your turning your body as if youve almost landed it.

Is there any sort of tip or hint to locking into bs crooks, from the proper way Ive seen people do them is balanced right over the wheel under their heel, idk I just cant get that trick to work for me, mabey I should just stick to nosegrinds :-\

back crooks is one of my most consistant tricks, there's no real tip to grinding them just practice them alot and find out what works for you, you'll get them eventually.

like i always tell my friends learning this trick, remember to aim YOUR FRONT TRUCK on the coping, not the nose of your deck....  if your slap down your nose and expect to do a crooked, you will stall or end up in a noseslide.....  remember that for crooks, your are grinding with your truck, not the nose of your deck, so aim to get your truck on the ledge..... 

i find it also helps to have your front foot at lease an inch behind the front bolts, that way after your drag your ollie to lock in, your weight is over your front truck and not over your nose....

next comes the dismount, which can be a bitch to learn....

is there some trick to nollie fs heels that i'm missing?  all that happens is that the board pops straight up and i get popsickled.  everytime.  what the fuck.  nollie heels and nollie fs 180's are pretty decent.
I hope one day Steve Austin is walking the street, I throw him a beer, and he stunners you.
