more toe hanging off and it flips itself, the front foot just helps apply pressure.
If you can land the shoves, the flip is just a foot placement away.

My weaknesses are everyone elses' go-to tricks on flat. Any spinning nollie fliptrick, nollie bs bigspin, full cab, fs flip, tre, fakie tre. I've got two friends that will shut me out every time if they don't fuck up based on their knowledge of what I just can't do.

But like I SUCK said, it's all about heelflips. Maybe all ollie-north variations, or double-flips. the kookier the better if you're playing someone that's actually good, and don't want it to go into infinity
I rarely venture into classic slap and the one time I do it I find a guy getting his dick eaten by a dolphin.

If you care eneough to win, you can always practice their tricks and learn the ones you can get closest to. If you learn a few it might be enough to throw off their game. SKATE is half mental, if you shake someone's confidence you can win even if their better. I know some people play SKATE to learn new tricks, but why play if you don't intend to win.

Thanks, Jamie Thomas! You're the bestest ever!  :-*

I've gotta learn fs flips. I used to do them when I was a kid, the way of Muska, and got made fun of, and quit doing them completely.

Other tricks like nollie 180 heels my body just tards out and I land primo

I learned f/s flips watching Ellington. Here's what I learned;
Back foot in the center of the tip of the tail with it facing more forward than most tricks. (heel hanging off the tail) front foot facing a little more forward than a kick flip, then kick flip while opening your shoulders 180, if you can catch it 90 you can then turn it a little in the air and the rest on the ground.
I suck at them, but if I focus on those things, I can do em.

...hope that helps.

I also found that if I put in 10 to 20 tries a day with any flat trick, I don't get frustrated while I gradually get more comfortable with the trick.
It takes me about 2 weeks to learn a new trick well, but you then have all the fundamentals that you need to keep it.

hahah, that's an amazing tutorial. I will try this.

The whole 15-20 tries a day regiment will probably take more disciplin than I've ever applied to my skateboarding, but ok.

its true though. i wish i could do enough of a trick i got conditioned to land it no matter what kind of like ollies. if you step on a board and put your feet in a popping position then jump its almost impossible to not ollie.

the only difference is Ellington puts his foot a little more in the center, but Andrew's obviously the master.
