i just learned switch fs 50-50s on this fat red curb yesterday (it's like twice the size of a regular curb. hey fuck you, this was a big deal for me, okay?)

i also just started getting fs tailsides and fs 180 nosegrinds, 180 out back. finally kinda figured out how to do slappies (used to be scared of them, but they're not that intimidating once you just go for it.)

feels good.

oh, and i'm relearning nollie heels. getting tricks back can be a major pain in the ass though.

(i really want to learn wallrides and 180 no complys this year. any tips on how i can master these SLAP classics?)

nice! that trick is so sick. especially back to regular. as for wallrides. act like you were going to carve a bowl or do a kickturn. also, having your weight centered but a little forward when coming out is key and just let your front foot guide the board as the back foot controls it. i learned them on bank to walls first then after it became easier doing them on regular walls made more sense.

yesterday i learned a new one, not really sure how to say it but its like front board and the board goes back to regular but my body does a bs body varial as if i were to land a front board fakie.

Fakie 5050s are a badass trick. Landed a few inward heelflips today, first really new flip trick in a while.

Kickflip out of a manual.

360flip/hardflip out is next on my list.

Jealous about the switch f/s 50-50 (I really want to get switch 50-50s both ways down).

For the f/s 180 no comply, my advice is to first learn no comply front shoves. Then, from there it becomes easier to start turning your shoulders with the board. So put your foot on the tail so the inside edge of your foot is at the start of the pocket and your front foot is over your front bolts. Start turning your shoulders frontside. Step to the side and a little bit forward, making sure to step a good distance to the side so your board has room to turn. Then jump and land on your board. Sometimes when you do a frontside 180 no comply, your board will move in front of you a lot, but I actually kind of like that because it feels pretty cool to be able to pull the board back to you so easily.

NOW, for the b/s 180 no comply, I actually couldn't do these until after I learned how to do b/s 360 no complys. It's basically the same philosophy as the f/s 180 no comply, except you have your front toes hanging off the board, your back foot is slightly further from the pocket, and you have to step forward a little more. Again, make sure to step far enough away from the board so it can turn completely. If you just want to do 180, you don't have to turn your shoulders as much as you'd think. Turning your shoulders will cause your board to go 270-ish, but then you can pivot the rest of the 360 and boom! For me, the b/s 180 feels more like a "pop and jump" then the f/s 180's "scoop and turn." This is really hard to describe if you can't do the b/s 360 no comply, so I would definitely suggest getting an idea of how to do those.

no comply frontside biggerspin, or no comply 360 bigspin, whatever the fuck you call it. all I know is it does a no comply 360 with an extra shove it.

I've almost got nollie backside flips and fakie hardflips too.

I've been able to do b/s 5-0 to: tailslide, shuv, and 180 (pop outs). But tonight was the first time I did a basic bs 5-0 pop out, felt good.

Lengthy frontside tailslides/ tailslide reverts on Transition. I'm still figuring out how to perfect them, because maybe 25% of the time my wheel catches and I do this weird 5-0 to tail, which is no good.

Also getting nosegrind 180s more consistent on ledges, very pleased with those.

I started doing pivot to fakies on bigger transition and just fucking around I learnt this trick where it's like a fs hurricane but with a bs pivot. Does anyone know what this trick is called?
