Trick Tips
« on: July 09, 2007, 02:29:20 PM »
I've noticed alot of you asking for trick tips. I'll post a couple for the threads I recall, but post tricks here and maybe people will help you out.

Frontside feebles: This is a tough one, and I suggest going for it on a tallish round rail first. Go at a fast speed, only pop as high as the rail (otherwise the force will cause your front truck to come down) and keep most of your weight on your back foot as you slide. Keep your balance as you lock in, like you are doing a manual.

Kickflip: This shit is hard to learn. Start out going slow, with your foot right below the bolts. Pop and flick the board out at the same time in one fluid motion, and jump as you pop. Then just focus on landing on the board.


One of my favorite lines is the one of spiked meth drnewton does off of lou pearlmans viarga and toddler-blood induced erection that finally puts that bitch 6 feet deep.

Why not just get the other topic pinned instead?  It already has 5 pages of people giving trick tips.

Backside 360s: It always helps me to roll up on these at a slight angle in the direction I'm going to spin. Wind up all you can, and roll up like you are going to do a backside 180.  Pop as high as you can, and it you should spin atleast 270 degrees right away, but hopefully 360. If you do stop spinning you'll have to force the rest of the rotation with your foot right before you land.

Yeaahhh, thats a hard one, first off you gotta have frontside 3's really consistent, im on the same boat as you trying to learn them, but what I do is hang my toes off a little more than I would for a regular heel, back foot on the very corner of the heel side of the board, pop, spin shoulders, watch the flick, but every time ive landed them its been a revert, so what I try to do is catch it not at exactly 270 but somewhere around 200 I guess, the momentum of your shoulders should be still going and when you feel the board hit the ground just try and force it around with your feet. Dunno if that helped, but its a hard trick and really no explanation is needed, just practice.

Could someone help me out with nollie flips? I can switch flip really well, but ive been struggling with nollie flips for like 2 years, every time I get a good pop and flick i end up either in front of the board or in nose manual. Im clueless.

 I don't know if this will help you, but aim your front truck right to the ledge/rail, as in just put it there. Don't ollie any higher then the obstacle because coming down will stop you dead. Like the front feebs only go as high as you have too.

nosegrind and k grinds are really just weight distribution. all the weight on your pop foot (exaggerate this motion for switch nose/k grinds), pop and transfer it all to the front so you can aim the trick, then as soon you make contact you equal it out. this way all your weight isn't stopping you from that long cruiselike grind experience you're chasing after. its all about being able to stand up on your foot without really holding all your pressure there. this is why nosemanuals help so much, because thats the name of the game there. it helps on front nosegrinds (and nosemanuals) to kind of throw your hip forwards so your body stays centered in the middle, if that makes any sense. if you watch anyone do a long nosemanual you should notice what i mean. i am the worst at typing how to do a trick, but i hope this helps with your problem of not being able to ollie into these tricks!

I learned these about a year ago, I think the key is not so much to be on top of the ledge but kind of grinding on the edge of it, like the actual corner of the ledge itself, unless its a skinny enough ledge to where you can actually lap your front truck over the other side of it and grind on top easily.

Hmm, this is kind of embarassing but I've wanted to learn slappies for a while, I'm guessing you just kinda ride parallel and hit the curb in like a wallride/wallie kind of motion? Can anyone explain exactly how one is done? ???

They are more of a carving/slashing motion then a wallride/wallie motion. You have to approach the obstacle fast, and at a slight angle. Then carve up on to the curb (or whatever you wish to slappy) while putting weight to your toe side for a backside slappy, or your heel side for a front side one, which causes the two wheels facing the curb to pop up, allowing your trucks to get up on to the curb and into the grind. It helps to lean back just a bit so that your momentum pushes you through the grind. You want to learn them on a low painted or waxed curb, and I think that the backside ones are easier to learn at first. They feel awesome when you get them, it is a fun trick to do while just cruising down the street.

slight angle and a fat fakie ollie and just jab it in there with back foot. Weight over nose but your legs are pushing it thru da grind. When I do it
I hardly ever stick cause of my weight balance. I'll mostly slip out from grinding to fast cuz of my weight placement. Pop out like a piomp.
