for bs ones, learn noseslides first.... when you ollie to lock into the crooked, focus on grinding on your front truck, not your nose....
remember, grind on your truck, not your nose.....

going fast helps....

Noseslides, Tailslides, and Nosegrinds?

I am horrible at nose manuals and can't even get into one, so I suck at nosegrinds too. Some advice on keeping balance for nose manuals would be good.

Whenever I try noseslides or tailslides I always end up in a boardslide or lipslide or not on the ledge/rail at all. I would really like to be good at them...

Also Ollie Norths? Every time I try them I end up either nutting myself or almost nutting myself... I just need tips for these, not how-to's. Thanks.

for noseslides, put your front foot further up close to your bolts, even over the first two..also stay about a boards width parallel to the object..

as for nose mannys, lots of practice for sure..i try to keep my front in the middle of nose, closer to the bolts and use the toes on my back foot to stay in the manny

hope this helps..

Popping fs big spins high without having them do a half-flip?

think tre flip but the other direction. and then front foot around the front bolts slightly hanging off.

pop hard and shove the crap out of it.

Yea but shoving the crap out of it is what causes it to flip for me.  :-\

nose manuals...are just balance skill.  find the balance and practice practice practice.

one-foots--to learn these I started with my front foot further up then I normally would for an ollie.  pop small ollies and kick your foot straight forward over the nose really quickly.  They're actually quite simple.  Once you learn that you can start moving your foot back to regular ollie position and do them bigger. 

my frontside tailslides aren't very good.  when you watch guys that are good tho you notice that they pop just over the ledge and push the tail into the slide.  they stay on top of the board and keep their shoulders really square.  watch scott johnson vids and practice.

put all the pressure on the wheel that is on the ledge, you should lock in if you do that..

then you must not be placing your front foot in the proper place. place it around the back 2 front bolts.

You actually have to ollie.
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.

Or just put a little more into it and try to learn how to pivot. Once you get that down legit ones come much easier.

to do truly great flyouts, aka canadian airs, one must be canadian, a snowbrah, or a total kook.
if you're all three, that will help.

explain

Start trying them on slanted walls, or slanted stuff that's like 1 feet tall. Roll towards it (no half-ass) dedicated on doing the wallie. As you approach the objeect put all your weight on the backend of the board and go at it as if you're trying to hit the object with all four wheels of the board. When you make contact put preassure only on the tail of the board (almost like you're trying hard to manual on the wall) and level out the board as soon as you're in "free air". That description probably sucked but you'll figure it out somehow.

just go fast, lift up the front, and bash that shit. finesse is the enemy of a good wallie.
