front shuv. literally no clue how to get that thing to spin frontside. also tips on how i can stop rotating my shoulders open during kickflips would be much appreciated

I do/did the same. Start with your front hand in front of you, but land with it behind you but keep your shoulder aligned with your hip. It makes you kind of swing your shoulder in front of you but stay straight. It took a minute to not feel super weird but it works for me so far.

I'm old so I scoop my front shoves.

so like if i'm regular, i put my left hand pointing forwards, at whatever i'm skating towards, flip, and i land with my left arm behind my back, hand pointing at whatever is behind me? is that what you're saying?
I started getting a lot better when I went back to college and started taking a lot of math classes when I was 31.

I figured out how to figure things out better, if that makes sense.

It doesn't have to be these big grand gestures of pointing at stuff, it more just compensates for how we naturally open our shoulders up and turn. It forces you to stay more straight by countering that natural open turn. If you look at natural kickflippers like Reynolds or Herman or whoever you'll see that dudes like them have their arm at their side/more behind them when they land vs. guys like us who have our arms in front of us in an almost defensive posture when we land.

I scoop and pivot (in the air I have dignity) around my front foot while looking at my board the whole time

i learned them in the air first but learning the powerslide version made the ollies more consistent. just to get used to your body doing that motion, push fast on flat [or find a little hill] and commit to whipping around sw bs.

I can't do ninja ollie or whatever it's called. And I don't want some eccentric instagram one  but I just to clear some long and high stuff

Heelflip is my favorite thing, sometimes I can do really good one and sometimes It's just awful rocket heel. The lack of consistency is annoying. Also I tend to think too much about it, like every position possible and I think it's not really good, mess with my head.

Can't do varial heel. Everytime I try I just end up with a rocket one and I don't even land on it. To me this is the most beautiful trick ever so it pisses me off.

for the varial heel problem it sounds like you're thinking about the front foot too much. that trick is all in the back foot, pop straight down and hard. front foot barely moves, you just kind of kick it out of the way but you mostly just extend your leg. stay over that back leg and jump.

for backside powerslides just go fast, maybe start turning slightly frontside at first then just lean into them pushing on your legs to break the momentum

Basic ass tricks that piss you off

...a straight clean ollie in flat without obstacles. I`m way over the basics, but 6 of 10 ollies are shit.

That has to be the same for everyone...I think we all need something to get over to make them clean

Might not be the most basic, but I didnt want to start a new thread. Anybody has tips on bs 360s? I can spin them, but my feet always land next to each other and one is off the board. Am I just too scared to commit or is there a trick to the landing? Landed some 270s on hips before, but I cant seem to get this shit on flat. Any help would be appreciated.

They're all in the big toe on your back foot. Have it hanging off the corner of the tail with your foot at a slight angle, as much as, if not more than you would do for a 360 flip. Your big toe controls the whole rotation and is pretty much the only part of your body that has to remain attached to the board (hence why so many one-footers on backside 360 ollies). You have to jump into the spin upper body first, watching footage frame by frame (not that I'd ever do that post 2004) it's not usual to see the upper body of the skater just about to complete the first 180 before they've even popped; in that pose their body appears twisted before the hips and legs get to catch up. If you've got the full rotation down the landing should be no problem, your back foot should keep the board flat and under you as you spin. If the board flies away you're either not committed enough to the spin, trying to turn your shoulders too late, or are short on the rotation. The most painful problem with that trick is when you start landing on your first few and eat shit with the board shooting out because you still have to figure out the feel of it. It's a lot going on at first. Learning it step hop (no comply) also helps tremendously.

Thank you, I got the no comply down and I thought I have the rotation pretty much as well. Going to focus more on my back foot. As with the bs tailslide I have been trying this one for years ;)

Back 3's are my favourite trick! theyre so rad when you figure them out. the advice above is spot on.
if you have them good on hips you shouldnt be too far off getting them straight. just fuckin Jump with it! none of that back 180 to 180 pivot nonsense

I can see why people think Slap is a bunch of retards; multiple people think Menikmati is the worst skate video of all time?

For varial heel your front foot should be around the middle of the board, maybe slightly closer to the front bolts than the back, your back foot should have your toes on the "corner" of your tail, kind of where you'd have 'em for a front shuv but a little further behind you, when you pop, back foot does a front shuv motion while the front foot kicks out diagonally

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.
