3flips are driving me nuts. Also nosemanuals are hit or miss now used to do them everywhere. I think the problem is in the shoulders placement when going for both.

Stand up frontside 50-50s on transition and front shuvs on flat. Fakie and switch are no problem, but regular ones are always on/off for me. I also have landing a switch heelflip on my bucket list, but I don't think I'll ever get there.

I'm trying to relearn heelflips and I'm not even fucking close. I was pretty decent at them before I broke my ankle and the fact that I can't even pop them enrages me

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.

Preach! I got better at them after I realized you don't have to scoop with your back foot, but rather just push straight down and the board will do the work for you. They still feel really awkward though and I want to do them better and land them more consistently.

...even when doing frontside boardslides I still have trouble keeping my body turned in the right way even though I can do them pretty consistently my body gets pretty weirdly contorted at times. I will keep working at it and I will try doing them on taller ledges.

I think that front boards are a lot easier when you ollie into it on something higher than a curb, like a foot or foot and a half tall flatbar. I can do them pretty consistently on those but I can't remember the last time I did one on a curb.

Alright I've been skateboarding for half my stupid life I think it's time I learned to 5050 on a round bar. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. The last time I tried one was 10 years ago and I ended up with a swellbow but knee-version.

I don't fuck with rails but I have a friend who can 50-50 anything and he swears the safest way to grind a rail is to grind it at an uneven angle (so it almost looks like a smith or feeble). So like if you're regular, your back truck is contacting the rail close to the left wheel and the front truck is touching the rail close to the right wheel. I've seen him grind some very scary things and the ones he lands do always look like that.

That pops up in every video now multiple times.

Looks stupid imo but that must be fun riding out a huge curved rail or kinker

Staggering your trucks ala Riley Hawk is the way to sit on round rails. I don't sit on them for any distance, but that's how. Backside is "safer" feeling to me because I can hop off the other side of the rail if I get scurred.

I think the younger generation is infinitely more comfortable on round rails than older folk because of the turn of the century suburban proliferation of the round CCS flat rail.

I literally cannot pop shove. Pretty sure the last time I did one was in 2010/11. The whole pop and scoop thing just feels completely unnatural to me.

I'll have to try to learn 50-50s on rails though, tried it once before and I never got close.

Nollies up things, over things is fine, parallel into grind/slide is fine, straight up something I have a brain glitch.

Heelflips, kickflips, and pop shovs. Can never seem to get my back foot down, frustrating but oh well.
Anyone got tips for nollies over things, I can get them on flat, but there is like a mental block when I try it over a curb or a street cone.

pop earlier than you'd think, learn them down small sets of stairs to get the right idea about the timing

BS 180s  :'(

Go outside right now and try one keeping your eyes on your back foot.

Dude thank you, always had a hard time rolling out switch and not pivoting.

tailslides, both fs and bs, and i've got good fs lipslides so fs tails shouldn't be too hard but for some reason i can't get them to slide, every time i try i do a tail stall. as for bs tailslides, i can't do them at all, i'm just too scared to try

frontside noseslides as well, another scary trick (for me at least)

For tailslides I usually lean out away from the ledge and push down but forward with the foot thats sliding to really make the ledge slide. But thats on the ledges at the skatepark which are never really too waxed and don't slide well. I feel like the ledge would have to be insanely slick to be able to like stand straight and be chilling on a tailslide. I'd always stick on back tails till my friend pointed out you gotta push your back foot the same as front tails.

All of this is good. Put every ounce of your weight on your sliding foot and lean a little bit back and you can coast those fuckers for miles.

This just clicked for me a few days ago as well for back tails. The front foot just does the guiding, the back foot does all the work.

Used to be able to 360 flip really consistently, I remember one day trying a line and being able to land them well every try. But now I can hardly even flip the fucking things. Somehow I can rotate them switch every try and fakie is really comfortable but regular just fucks with my head now. I just overthink them every try

I canīt seem to get out of bs tailslides. I have been trying for really long now and I guess it might be in my shoulders. When I land one which rarely happens, I fall out to fakie awkwardly. I can slide them but I cant get out of them. Any tips on that? thanks

It's probably your hips. I don't move my upper body much if I'm doing bs tails to regular, so if your shoulders are getting in the mix try keeping your upper body mostly facing the direction it was when you hit your tail. Then you can just rotate your hips out of it.

Did for me, I guess it tricked my shoulders to turn all the way around, try it out, I was getting them the cleanest I ever have pretty quickly that way.

Thank you, I ll focus on my hips and report back when I find a dry place to skate again which will probably be next weekend  8)
