Post your favorite trick tips and or ask/provide advice.

Don't move this thread to another forum MODs. OR ELSE.

Here's my favs:


This one always helped me. The advice of practicing olliing into stalls on curbs was really helpful:



Pretty sure this is how a switch flip is supposed to look:

jamal smith is my new favorite skater, thank you for introducing me to that video.

i think a good trick tip is, go fast, pop hard and jump high.

i spent at least an entire months worth of time total trying to figure them out for myself in the first couple years of skating. then that trick tip came out and i went outside and could do them every try. that back foot thing was the key

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

I landed that big spin in a game of skate last night. I just need the 3 shove now.

Trick tips only seem to work when your friend can see specifically what you are doing wrong.  Jamal Smith needs a blog or some shit.

I want to be able to nollie heel and nollieflip out of a nose manual.

I do nosemanuals all the time and I have pretty good nollie heels and flips. But Doing them out of a nose manual doesn't work.

What's the key to succes?

flip out of the nose manual like it has AIDS, like, oh shit, my board has AIDS. then when you think you're safe the board wants to give you a goodbye kiss where you have a cut and you're too drunk and confused to know whats going on so you're just kind of enjoying the moment but then you realize whats going on and its too late

Lame thread bump, I know, but I'd really appreciate it if anyone can give me a tip on how to do wallies over parking barriers.  I know you have to start on slightly angled stuff before hitting vert wallies, but when I skate barriers I can only get my front wheels over the top and hook my board on it at best. Do I just have to go faster?

I'm having trouble kickflipping down stairs. I can kickflip consistently on flat and can ollie the stairs no problem. When I try to kickflip the stairs the board always lands right in front of my feet, or hits the top of my feet before it finishes its rotation. I know practice makes perfect but does anyone have any tips for keeping the board underneath me? Thanks.

back foot in the middle of the tail. pop straight down. let it spin. don't think about your front foot so much. if you pop straight down and don't let it drag or don't accidentally scoop, it should spin that full 360 no problem. believe me, it works.

Straight no complies. I don't get the timing to do it all in one motion.

Anyone have any insight on impossibles?

Incidentally, I just found out that they were first called improbables back in the day.  For some reason the name changed. Wish I knew the full story on that.
