I'm stumped
« on: March 29, 2014, 11:13:06 PM »
Never realized until today that I've been calling two different tricks by the same name, and I don't know how to differentiate between them now. 

They're front 180 to switch crook approaching the rail backside (like a raised hurricane), and front 180 to switch crook approaching the rail frontside (like a raised sugarcane). I've always called both of them just front 180 switch crook. So which is what?

I've wondered this before as well. I usually just say 180 switch crook for the backside version and 180 switch crook "the hard way" for the frontside version. Its probably not accurate terminology, but it's how I've always distinguished between the two.


im probably lying

That's how I see it, but I think mags do post both under 180 switch crook. Its always kinda annoyed me. I like Howard grind. Skateboard names have become to technical and descriptive, they need more trick names like jolly mombo and wooly mammoth. It should be Howard grind one way, and dipsy-doodle grind the frontside way.

The other trick is too tough to do....and therefore too tough to name....

If there is no Rick flip...there cannot be a Howard grind....

Fs 180 to back truck grind is fakie 5-0 if the rail started off behind you. 180 switch crook if the rail is in front. It's a whole other thing if you're talking about ledges. If you go from behind the ledge and into a switch crook it's just a 180 switch crook. If you come from in front of the ledge the hard way then it's still a 180 switch crooks. I just call them alley oop 180 switch crooks if I need to be specific.

How the hell are you gonna name the Jolly Mamba and Wolly Mammoth as cool trick names and not the Nancy Reagan?  It's your wife for Christ's sake!

If you 180 onto the backtruck, then its a 180 fakie 5-0... but if its in a crooked position it's actually called a 180 fakie suski. Trust me.

Sometimes these Questions break people apart. I had a friend that did some kind of illusion variant heelflip and insisted it was a heelflip hardflip. We weren't really friends after.that

nope.

why not? technically makes sense as long you understand the concept of fakie nosegrinds.
 i guess someone could argue one could technically be 180 switch overcrook. but im not gonna bother.
