I'll play...

Halfcab Heel. I think they look kinda silly, and I have no desire to learn them, but it's a guaranteed letter for me in skate.

theres a line in mosaic where dill does a fakie front shuv and i always thought he made it look really cool, so ive always been a fan of doing that trick. my frontside halfcabs ( :P) have always been better than backside, so the fakie front big just came natural i think. its almost as simple as just turning my shoulders and going back to regular. they don't look great and ive never done it on anything other than a hip and flat ground, but yeah, its an easy letter on almost anyone in skate. sorry.

Nollie front shoves and pop shoves. Both simple tricks that I can in fact do, but don't do regularly because they're not fun. Then I screw them up and look like a moron and not someone who's been skating for seventeen years. Nollie front shoves are the go-to for any simple game of SKATE, it seems like.

frontside noseslides. It took me ten years to learn frontside boardslides, I'm afraid it will take another ten years to learn frontside noseslides. They are so nice though!

I learned them by overwaxing a curb and then ollieing into the noseslide but with my shoulders posed as if i was doing a fs boardslide. The one with turned shoulders, that would look rad for a photo. The posing will help you not die because of the excess wax and the excess wax will help you slide while in that awkward pose. Once you have the ollieing/sliding part down you can start not waxing the ledge/rail. Also, it helps if the curb is not super low. I feel comfy at a bit lower than knee height.

I have a love/hate relationship with tre flips. There are are days where I figure out the scoop and land them super consistently for the whole session, then I lose them and don't land a single one for months. There's no rhyme or reason to it, it just happens out of the blue.
Tre flips are bitter sweet, peer pressure from friends help after everyone lands theirs in the game of skate. Just gotta jump with it.

B/S 50-50s on quarter pipes. My front truck loves to slip out of the coping and onto the top of the deck.

B/S Smiths on ledges, the heel on my backfoot loves to act as a brake pad.

F/S Flips, probably have done 3-5 in my life but never can figure it out. My body is "f/s challenged".



I used to do them Ellington style, a kickflp then a quick 180, but my success rate was way low and it was a crap shoot every time. THEN I saw a clip of Carroll doing one in I believe that Wet Dream video they did however long ago, he just does a FS flip on flat in a line, and watching him do that one made them click for me and I can do them way better and way more frequently now. The way he has his feet and shoulders is really obvious and if you can copy that you'll be gold. I tried to find the montage online but I can only find the CK in the pool parts so happy hunting.
Thanks I'll try to peep it.

Thank you for the advice! What I am struggeling to do is exactly that what you have described. 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.

backside for me. it took me years and years just to be able to back 5050. i can do noseslides and boardslides and maybe a bluntslide if im feeling daring, but backside grinds have always been a struggle. if i try a feeble, its going to take me a million tries which i never understood because i can get into them fine but i just stick, but front smiths have always come easy.

Bs flips. They just wrap around my foot and I hit myself in the shins.

Kickflipping into anything. I have really good kickflips on flat but I can't do them into anything for the life of me.

Almost 15 years of skating clocked in and I'm still trying to do nose manuals

I can't do them worth shit after 31 years.
