Front 5-0 to crook. Any advice would be appreciated


Iím trying to get those too!
This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.

Not exactly something I'm trying to learn but something that came to mind while messing around with wallies/slappies into boardslides on ledges (I know, but it's dumb fun), it doesn't seem to hard from that 'launch' to overshoot and end up in hurricane position (or barley grind but hurricane is sicker), now I think it could be cool to see wallie hurricanes on tall-ish shit. I reckon it should work like a slappy frontside feeble coming from the wrong angle. I literally gave it two tries where I was too scared to commit to actually putting weight on the truck before moving on as I'm not trying to fuck myself up mid-lockdown but it's something to do.

What's the first trick to learn on a mini? I learned to pump and carve, can drop in on small ramps so still working on that.

I started with rock to fakie then fakie tail stall and finally backside 50-50. Once you become comfortable on a mini the tricks start coming quickly.

Does copping make dropping in a little easier?

I've never really thought about it but I guess the copping would give you more stability on your tail so you can focus more on placing all your weight forward instead of slipping out.

Can't really tailslide but I've gotten a few nollie back tails on curbs lately. They're surprisingly easy to get into, but hard to actually get a good slide.

Iím having trouble with tre flips. When I land one my front foot is on my nose and my back foot is either in the middle of the board or barely behind the front bolts which puts all my weight forward so I donít ride away.

Is it because I fling them more sideways instead of in front of me or my foot position which is more forward facing instead of 45 degrees?

Ok so there's this ramp I dropped in on that didn't have coping and I didn't feel right, also slipped out twice on the thing. Makes me worry about dropping in on the mini that does have coping.

Rock to Fakie. Geting my truck over the lip is a little scary to me. I practiced pumping up and raising my nose up to get a feel. Also practiced leaning back more. But still scared to actually do it. Any Advice?

Can you do rock to fakies on steep banks? Gives you a good feeling for that little fakie wheelie motion. Roll up a bank, get your front truck on top of the bank and roll back to fakie. Then do the same with lifting up your front truck. Hope that makes sense, since English is not my native language.

I practiced on a fun box with a bank. That was a little sketchy feeling but I will try it on there tomorrow.

Trying to figure out frontside flips. I can't put the whole trick together, either I get the whole 180 and land on my board upside down or I get the full flip and only get like 120 degree rotation. I've landed a bunch of shitty ones with a big pivot but I want the full 180.

I'm in a similar spot but I can do 90 degree pivots pretty often. I noticed putting my front slightly lower and flicking sideways helped more of them go the full way.

I struggled a lot with this trick and what helped me is learning hardflips first and getting really consistent with kickflips.

Thanks I may give that a try see how close I get. I've never landed a hardflip in my life but that would be a bucket list trick for sure.

Is your foot positioning for your hard flip the same as your fs flip? Does the hard flip get you used to the pop/scoop of a fs flip?

When I have trouble with my fsf I remind myself to jump a bit higher and remember that the trick is a means of moving forward, focus on the forward motion seems to help me alot

Yeah my problem was kicking the board away when I turn 180 so learning hardflip helped it be more one fluid motion than kickflip catch 90 piviot
I'm normally against vibing and the like but Idk anymore with these perved out anime kids. Now I think we need to go back to robbing kids boards at gunpoint if they show up to the spot. Wheres young Stevi

I'll put my inferior f/s no-comply out there. If anyone has any tips about what I can do to make my f/s no-complies more fluid and quick, I'd be happy to hear them.

I think a large part of why I do them fairly slowly is that I don't have a lot of control with my back foot - the board goes flying out, or flips a little, or stabs my leg. So, I move slowly for a little more control. Maybe I just need more practice.

I've been trying to remember "plant, pop, move" to plant my foot, pop my board, and move my foot off the ground and back on. Also trying to tell myself to move my foot off the ground as soon as the board starts to go back down.

Also any tips for no-comply 360s are much appreciated.

I've tried them before. I think the start of it is kinda like a normal frontside slappy but you gotta only do the start of the slappy motion and as soon as your truck gets on you gotta stop rotating and put all the pressure on your front toe to pinch. Dont really know how to come out though. Would like to try em switch too. Just learned sw bs slappy crook and theyre suuuuper fun and chill.
