Will someone please properly explain to this retarded pile of meat how to properly get into a backside smith-grind?

I can only do those ones that don't dip and grind no longer than a cunt-hair.

^ any tips on getting back tails to regular? Finally figured them out to fakie, needs more work, but can't do them to regs to save my life, I don't seem to physically be able to whip my lower body around enough to prevent my wheel from jamming whilst still looking forwards.

Your brain and nerves will tell you you're turning out enough, but you aren't. Over swing like you're in a cartoon. You won't over turn I promise.

I find its the front shoulder/arm, keep it turned out almost looking over your shoulder type position. If that doesn't work just shuv out some days I find that easier.

This is kind of embarrassing but i can't land heelflips for shit. i started skating a couple of years ago but spent more time on ledge and trying the weirder tricks like wallies, polejams, slappies.
I've landed a few but now that im trying to get them properly down i always land with my front foot in front of the nose and i cant fix it. I can flip them every try but my front foot won't land in the right place.

I really fell for skating even though i discovered it kind of late (when i was 16), so its really getting me down that i dont have a flip trick yet. Thanks for any advice you might have. x
 
Never had this problem, but like I've said before in this thread, don't think of it like a heel. Do an ollie except hang the toes on your front foot off the board a little. It should work itself out.

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.

I can only do those ones that don't dip and grind no longer than a cunt-hair.

I used to be good at both back side lip slides and back side smiths on ledges. Never learned front side of either very well--always more of a back side guy. When you do a back smith pretend you are going to do a back lip, but instead of turning 90 degrees just stop at whatever you need to get your back trucks on and front trucks on the side of the ledge. Also, do the ollie like a back-side shifty and land on the ledge with your front leg straight in mid shifty. The higher you ollie the less you will grind this trick when you land. If you land in the shifty pose you will grind well. If your question is for ramp I have no idea as I don't do the Monty grind. Hope this helps. I got excited cause I really liked this trick once upon a time. Maybe I will try it next time I skate the box at my local skate-lite park. Oh the horror...

There's still hope. Always had a good nollie bs flip forever but couldn't do a regular nollie flip for my life until recently. Was always envious of homies or littles kids who had em on lock. Learned em finally at age 34/35 pretty good. Could do em at the end of lines but not doin em over a gap or down stairs or anything. As far as basic ass tricks that piss me off? Always wanted to but never landed or even locked into a frontside half cab noseslide on anything, always wanted to do a really good one...

Still 3flips.. at this point I can land them nollie but not regular. I can't make my front foot do the scoop-drag motion. I land with only the back foot on or both feet on the nose haha it's so frustrating.

Ollie north, never been able to do them. At 30 years old and on the board for 16, I can say I've landed probably like 5. My friends do them with ease, while I'm over here sweating bullets trying.

think of it as a kickflip without the ankle flick. you ollie then kick straight off the nose, really like you would for a good kickflip but you don't use your ankle, you keep your foot stiff and solid. back foot on the board controls it by keeping it flat, to prevent flippage but really like it would for a normal ollie so you don't think about it.

Mark Renton's problem on 360 flips has to be upper body-related. if you land in front of the board, you're leaning forwards too much. upper body should be straight, perpendicular to the ground - don't bend like you're looking over your nose, sit on that back leg instead. you pop and scoop with the big toe on your back foot, over the edge. shoulders facing where you're going and you never move them or the board will fly out of control. really try using the pop too so they don't look too flat or varial kickflippish. then don't turn your hips either and aim for the bolts (sounds dumb but for this trick it really works). if you keep landing in front of the nose, try leaning back more. if (like me) you're not a natural at that trick then yes it can get frustrating, but it's really worth it when you get it down. I know I've always refused to learn it without the pop, like most kids do them (which seems to enable them to do them super easily, but personally I've never liked that look, I kind of like the struggle on those).

I landed a few yesterday. I think I was messing up:
- back foot placement, toes needed to be more on the tail
- shoulders needed to be parallel

It might have been the slippery ground and/or the new bushings (realized I was skating with exploded ones) but I'm stoked. First 3flips in years!

that's funny you just got them back after you changed your bushings because coincidentally I just changed mine too and got flatground switch 360 flips back yesterday too (hadn't done a good one in maybe 14 years not counting flatbanks, on which they are easier), also on slippery ground but that's a start. back foot placement is key. I also just very recently understood how crucial guiding your tail around with your big toe throughout the whole pop was, in a way that feels almost like an impossible rather than a pop shove-it if that makes sense. makes the concave stick to the front foot so you can get the flip a lot better.

Kalis just posted a clip of a dude doing one with super exaggerated back foot action on IG, it starts off looking silly then he gets mad pop and good form out of it, it's crazy:

how close to the ledge are you supposed to be for backside tailslides on the approach? I keep landing on top of the ledge with either half my truck or both wheels. I donít know if I need to approach from further away or turn it differently in the air. some people look really close as they approach.

Depends on how you approach it. If you come at an angle and swing into it you're going to want to be farther away. Your problem sounds like you're riding pretty parallel with it and you do your turning in the air, so you want to be close but not close enough to land like you are. Getting your wheels on top also comes from combining the two approaches where you ride parallel and swing, or come at an angle and ollie straight. You have to pick one. I'd say keep doing what you're doing but play around with how far from the ledge you should be. It's a matter of like halves of inches.
