You better pop an ollie on that backtail!
« on: May 02, 2008, 01:56:43 PM »
Opinions?

It really bugs me when people are skating any kind of tranny and they kind of push into or scrape into a backside tailslide instead of popping a proper quick ollie.
one-upping is rad.  so is beaming.  both so unquestionably identify the kooks...saves a lot of wasted time/small talk.  you instantly know who to avoid.

Can you post examples?

I can't really think of too many people who pop into them, maybe Justin Strubing.

Scraping is acceptable if you're over 30. There should at least be some kind of tail/pre-coping contact though.

People who skate transition never learn to ollie.

I experienced both of these firsthand.

I don't really care either way, back tail slides on tranny are not easy no matter how you get into em', not for me anyway.

That is funny considering the ollie was invented on transition.

I thought for the most part that was the case, but for tailslides it was like an either/or type of thing, and for disasters, noseblunts and rock to fakies that the bigger you ollied in, the better.

How about the flipside? This is how you pop an ollie—or in this case, kickflip—out of a backside tailslide... (A.O. 4:16)

it doesn't stop there, if you don't feel like doing a "poptart" you can just "windshield wiper" instead

If you do it little its a stupid trick. If its an ollie popped up 4 feet above coping where you smack your board coming into fakie its cool. But come to think of it, still not that cool.
Pop tarts are fun

i thought that proper bs tailslide technique was to kinda of pop a little ollie under the coping into it. mumford is a good example of this. a huge ollie could qualify for an ollie to tail.

yeah, i'm not talking about ollie to tail, i'm talking about good ol' tailslides. busenitz, carroll, cardiel, tnt and stranger all have good examples of a proper backtail where you pop your shit. ive just seen a some guys go real fast and just kind of push into it and its gross compared to the real deal...
