Anyone have any tips on fs bigspins?

I can do them switch but my reg ones just go into a weird looking big heel motion, even when i dont move my front foot.
It's all in the back foot scoop. Just work on getting that back foot scoop. Some people like to put their back foot in the lower pocket of the tail, but that's not really necessary. Just go for whatever foot positioning that you feel comfortable with that works. The trick pretty much works like a front pop, but scoop it harder than you would for a front pop, have your body ready to turn and your shoulders in that frontside turn position like how Reynolds explained in that one transworld FS flip trick tip video, catch the board and land. You might have trouble getting the full turn, but if you have your shoulders and positioning set well enough and your body is winded up just right when you do it you should just revert the rest of the trick automatically.
Man, I'm terrible with trick tips, hah. Hope what I said helped though.

Inward Heels Wieger style?

I've got a good high back pop shuv and a decent heelflip, but I realize the foot extensions for inward heels are pretty wild when you have to combine the two. Should I focus on ing straight out perpendicular to me or diagonally?

I don't know what you mean by "Wieger style", but I do them by ing almost straight out. Just give the board a good scoop and try to kick out so that your heel will hit the pocket of the nose as it's coming around. How well you time that is gonna determine how well it flips. You can also kick out diagonally, but to do them like that you need to pop it differently, kinda of like you're doing an illusion flip, so the board goes semi-vertical.

i ram the ball of my foot against the concave on my toe side...I don't really hang my toes off...you just sort of load up that side so when you do your pop shove, your board flips....for me at least there's no real flick....it's just pop...and get your feet out of the way....so yeah...it's the heelflip version of an illusion flip.  You  might kind of catch it at 90.....

It's all compressing and shoulders. Compress yourself down and wind your shoulders up. Then between 180 and 270, your body will catch up to your shoulders so push your front foot down, like you're scooping your board around. You might land around 270-300, but if you're doing this, you should have enough momentum in your arms and body to powerslide the rest of the way. I usually do them the powerslide way, but once in a blue moon I'll get one that I land really close to 360.

I'm trying fs tailslides now but I can't get my body straight. If I don't stuck, I slide for 3 feet and come off regular.

I can't do it to fakie because my upper body doesn't move and my weight isn't on the tail.

Did somebody had the same problem and does anyone has a tip for me?

As embarrassing as this is to ask, I need help staying above my board.

Its basically all mental, but since I rolled my ankle pretty rad-ly, I haven't able to land a flip trick very clean.

It's been about two weeks since I stepped back on my board, and I don't want this "not landing tricks" business to continue.

If anyone has any tips or suggestions, besides "stop being a pussy" or something to that effect, they would be greatly appreciskated.

I found when I was learning them, I was trying to extend them to far, making it really hard to get the board back under me. Basically what you want to do, is roll up like you're just going to pop up onto the deck. Then make sure to turn all the way around. It's easy to let yourself just turn 90 degrees. This wont be a problem later, but for learning you'll want to do the full 180. Then grab and think of it like you're doing a melon grab, try to keep the board more under you, as opposed to kicking out behind you for the style points. Then really all it is is hopping back on. I learned em to tail first, and that sort of fucked with me taking them straight in at first. Once you've got it up on the coping, eye your landing, jump and get that shit back under your feet.

Also, if you're having trouble getting it back under you, try grabbing different spots. I know some guys kind of nosegrab it, where as I grab backside.
Because you can't kill and idea, and we will not be ruled!

Thanks a lot that's really helpful. I'll probably try them to tail and just see where it goes from there, jumping straight back in seems really gnarly and scary. And yeah I think grabbing it backside is more proper than grabbing the nose. Either way I just think they look really cool, can't wait to try them now. Thanks again.

You have any tips for the foot placement? I ride some soft wheels and have a hard time powersliding tricks so I gotta get like the full rotation.

Best advice I can give is back foot toes right in the middle of the tail and front foot behind all 4 of the front bolts. If you're not able to powerslide at all, I'd say have the inside of your foot around the middle of the board. I always put the toes of my front foot flush with the (toe) side of my board. And just pop super hard.

This one is all about how you shift your weight during the trick. I'm also assuming you're trying this on a box/ledge. When you front board you'll naturally be hanging more off the side of the box, so once you start to swing around and lock in the truck of your nose, sort of use that to pull yourself up on top of the box, then lock in that back truck and grind. Maybe try front board to switch 5-0 to help figure out how to get that truck locked in.

Gold.


This sucks to admit but I can't bs 50 a ledge, never really practiced them.. got really close today though, and almost did a bs smith by accident.  Finally realized you have to angle your front foot way to the side to guide the board.

If it makes any sense, I kinda fall back into it. Like you need to work on that flick for mad long cause that's the key but after you got the flick you kinda pop backwards into it.

the one thing i never figured out until now about that trick is that your flick foot you don't put too far back.  I was always putting it like half way which is way too far back....still can't do them but i can flick them better...

keep your back foot on the middle of the tail and not on a treflip stance. Frontfoot right under the front bolts.

Whenever I feeble I can never get out straight...I always do like a 180 out.
it shouldnt feel too much like a back board. ollie higher than usual for a back board and lean way over to the right (if ur regular) and lean back. almost over exaggerate how much you lean to the right and back. and kinda pop out to stop it from primo'ing. for frontside its the same is guess just opposite of everything for b/s.

Fakie full cab flip! I can flip it, i can rotate it but when i try to land it i slip out. I feel super unconformable  once i get the full rotation and the catch. Its like my feet feel too close together and im landing awkwardly. Land and SLIP and the board shoots out. Do i need to focus more on keeping my feet kind of spread out or just flow with it and relax : /
