Basic ass tricks that piss you off
« on: September 02, 2017, 12:35:28 AM »
Frontside 50-50's just piss me the fuck off. My front shoulder just won't stop turning so i always end up in a shitty front feeble on a ledge. Anyone else have basic tricks that just piss them off to no end?

Yes, regular kickflips on flat are the worst! I can do them pretty well off bumps and in banks and I can do them well fakie. When I do them on flat they are always real shitty or don't work at all.

frontside shove-its and nollie heels aren't my friends
backside grinds too, but they magically work with a flip in

Most ledge/rail tricks. I've had some weird nerve pain in my knee which makes it a lot more work to pop tricks, and that translate to feeling less in control so I just get freaked out. It's real frustrating.

when I first learned em the trick for me was to focus on locking in that front truck first, and then shifting the back truck on after. that being said, the front truck slipping out of 5050s is a known troublemaker.

I'm convinced regular kickflips are the hardest flip trick. I bail em in pretty much every game of skate, but have no problem doing "harder" flip tricks first try - tre flips, nollie flips, switch heels, you name it. drives me crazy.

backside and frontside axle stalls/grinds on any kind of real transition. Think its cause when I was a kid I just learned bs feeble stalls and fs five-0 grinds and skipped learning axle stalls/grinds. So now they feel awkward trying to get up on them and not think about overshooting onto the deck. I'll frontside disaster or tailside some bowl before axle grinding it and its so dumb

Back D on transition. I mean, they're more like 2nd level basic but I can't even bail one the right way.

Kickflips and I have an everlasting troublesome relationship. I'll have points where I can do them into grinds, over relatively high objects, and incredibly consistent. To one day not being able to do them well for months on end.

Fucking hate kickflips.

I don't think I'll ever do a switch or nollie heel flip.

I could never figure out flip tricks, but that doesn't really bother me. I love transition and going fast, long grinds, manuals and bombing hills. I just wish I could get over my fear of frontside grinds. Even on the smallest quarter pipe all I can do is a frontside slash. I can't hold onto a 5-0 and keep it going or else it freaks me out. A nice long frontside grind is one of the coolest tricks in skateboarding, especially on pool coping. Only in dreams...

kickflips are hit or miss, same for nollie flips
3flips are driving me nuts lately and I used to do them fine.

Oh fucking god just stop!

The absolute ultimate assknife trick in existence! I used to have these on lock until "the incident".  I was just the right height at the time where I got stabbed a solid inch deep in the taint, and no doubt I was left bloody and violated.

Nowadays when I try them I just automatically turn backside (no pun intended).

frontside flips used to work just fine till the very day i eventually learned switch frontside flips. for one day i thought i was cool throwing both back to back on flat mid line, then as soon as the next day after that the regular ones were completely gone for no legitimate reason. to this day i can still do both, but regular f/s flip remains a pain in the ass whereas the switch counterpart is a walk in the park.

many basic b/s ledge tricks still feel awkward to this day due to never really giving a shit about them - or not even having a proper ledge to learn them on - growing up. been working on that because now i think they look the best, but it's hard to shed off 15+ years of bad habits

also kickflip nosewheelie is a fairly basic one i've always seen people do like they're nothing, and as a kid i remember thinking it was one of the coolest tricks, but i couldn't learn it back then because i had chicken foot mobbed kickflips which just wouldn't function. nowadays i feel like i could finally learn it, but i'm missing a good manny pad for that. or maybe i just need to get off my ass, find a random curb and nerd out on them for a solid two hours...

kickflips and fs shove its

since i fucked up my flick foot's ankle (1998) i have not landed a single kickflip that was not kebab/rocket so no chance to learn flip crooks or flip nosewheelies or flip noseslides.
with fs shuvs its different. I can pop them pretty-pretty-high (for my level) but they are always uncontrolled  and a hazard for my board and I have never been able to do one into a 5-o or a nosegrind. No control whatsoever, just pop and pray. I think I cannot do that thing when the board goes kind of in front of you like it would for a fs shove it fs five oh but working on it.

i can do my f/s shoves like that, sort of ; just popping straight down really hard on the tail (sheer brute force) with barely any shove-it type of motion instantly results, for me, in a two-feet high flatground f/s pop shove that just meets the front foot at the peak (if not before the peak) of the jump (it's one of the tricks i can pop the best, and i really only do them on flatground or out of manuals). now that sounds (and feels) really nice except the consistency comes and goes with every new deck i set up, depending on the shape ; on certain decks (we're talking a good 50% ratio) my toes will catch the board first and accidentally start late flipping it, which i never seem able to foresee (turning the whole adventure into a pop and pray thing too) and consequently regularly results in hitting the worst, most violent flatground primos. for that reason alone i swear i dread the first f/s shove(s) that come(s) with every time i need to touch my set-up.

a friend i regularly skate with does them perfect, even into fs tailslides! he tried to teach me numerous times but to no avail. I guess its my back foot that out of habit pops crooked and in a direction that favors bs shove its. I could work on it more but the tax on boards is crazy- I break or at least crack one deck every time i session fs shove its on flat.
