Boardslide to fakie on ledge?
« on: May 03, 2018, 03:43:54 AM »
I know boardslides on ledges are not a very cool trick but I'm not very cool and I do them because I have so few tricks. I think fakie looks a little better and more controlled.


Anyway, what's the secret to getting out of them fakie? Do you need pressure on your nose or is it a speed and momentum thing? Fakie out of a flatbar is easy but it doesn't seem to work the same way on ledges.

I like when folks go fast and do a cheeky fakie nose wheelie bump out.
Have to have slide through perpendicular to get that to work.

go faster and just turn to fakie. speed is the name of the game with this one.

I usually press the nose a little bit, put my shoulders in that direction and the speed make the rest.

Yah you pivot and end up switch mannying it then you snap it off......if you ever muster enough skill you'll switch back 180 out...and come all the way around....

shift your weight onto the truck ontop of the ledge and rotate your back shoulder toward the ledge

uh while your trying it try variations to feel more loose.   Like boardslide to fakie nosegrind 180 to forward.  Or halfcab into the board to fakie.  Whatever it is you need to press your wheels while your boardsliding so that they make noise and with then more pressure so you go from sliding your front wheels to a switch manual off. I'm into ledge tricks like this cause you don't need any pop really.

speed and shoulders, i know it sounds corny but when sliding and ready to dismount turn shoulders and have your stance hunkered over the board so you dont slip out own that shit! it feels sick if you do it with no tic tacs and fast

My habit with boardslide to fakie on ledge is to sort of do a fakie ollie out of it, even though the board doesn't necessarily touch the ground during the "fakie ollie."
