Recently learned fakie front crooks and it took awhile to get the pinch right but now i can pop out of the metal ledge at my local park. Started to get the flick out but keep landing on the bottom of the deck or missing the flick completely. So hyped on this one even just trying it but its also frustrating thinking about a trick all day at work then spending most of the sesh after work just trying to inch closer to the trick but still no dice. just happy to finally be flipping out of shit, probably one of the most satisfying this to me.

Fakie BS Nosegrind, the Kalis staple. Backside Tailslides again but the ledge at my local park is low, just below above ankle height.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

Same thing as I said for the frontside halfcab noseslide, just ollie higher and turn less

Always sucked at regular backside bigspins. Itís like the only basic regular trick I donít have on lock at this point. Anyway I skated with my childhood best friend who also got me in to skating and we learned it together today. Super inconsistent and I land awkwardly a lot but I can do it perfect if I land with my shoulders right and jump out a bit.

Yeah was locking in a few by accident while doing 1/2 Cab Frontside Noseslides, same principles.

Not sure if itís this thread but @Gay Imp Sausage Metal  gave a tip on half cab to tail slide. I tried it on the curb Iíve been skating and it made sense. Thank you.

Yeah it was some weird donít think about this truck as nollie or something like that. It was confusing a bit.
Went and tried it but realized I could just powerslide and kiss the curb.

hi struggling with nose slides at the moment.

I can lock in and slide a little bit but I always come to a dead stop and I never seem to get the smooth slide most people get. Iíve worked out itís not a wax issue. Iím wondering if itís my foot placement as I donít always land with my whole foot on the nose. I can slappy noseslides a good distance however.

I have the same issue with crooked but I only have learnt those recently so itís more of a practice thing I think regarding crookeds.

How high is the ledge your sliding on? I hate low ledges for noseslides because I never learned to slappy and always over-pop going into the slide.

It sounds like you are stomping your nose into the ledge rather than riding on top of the ledge. Ideally you want to pop just high enough so your forward momentum is maintained. Popping high will get you on the ledge, it will kill the forward momentum of the board, causing a short slide. Think of it as popping your board so it will hover on top of the ledge, and you turn off at the end in 1 motion to continue your direction of movement.

Don't hang your back toe over the edge of the tail too much, make sure to get as 'flat' of a pop as you can, try to keep your trucks level or slightly heelside leaning. These things help me.

It helps me when I have my toes pointed forward on my back foot. Even more do then when I do a kuckflip.

I am trying to Properly learn crooked grinds Switch an regular. And to get more consistent on frontside noseslides and switch frontside noseslides. It is my goal to learn proper a proper Fakie Ollie Switch Front nose. I either get stuck and fall out or I slide and slip out, hence I went back to learn proper switch frontside nose slides.

When I was young I would just force Tricks by trying them till I got them and then move one. I want to be able to feel and control my tricks better now. I figure an Andy Anderson approach to skating is better for longevity than the all will no skill kind of approach. I do miss Just going for broke sometimes, but whenever I do I get hurt more often than not...

if anyoneís got advice on

fakie crooks or fakie tails - can work it out on curbs but I lose the board when I have to pop higher onto ledges. End up standing in stance on the ledge with no board. Also even on curbs for fakie tailslide I struggle to find the balance between slipping out on to my face and leaning too far back so it sticks.

fakie manuals- any trick to these? My reg manual and nose mannys are fine but my balance on fakie is trash and getting pitched is scary.

As soon as I start skating again (probably not too long, foot feeling fine) I want to start getting long 50-50s with decent speed at a small round rail so I can do it at a bigger one in the streets.

Noseslide to krooked - no slappy tho.

Watched the Mike York trick tip - it really helped!!

Almost got one last night, but I couldnt seem to pop out of the krook, and i couldnt seem to fakie it either.

Next sesh. Funny tho, tried that trick earlier this year, but wasnt approaching it the right way.

Fun as hell tho. Last time I did one of those was like 94 - 26 years ago!!

Good times!

I can only so a fakie tail if I shuv into it, which pretty much doesn't count right? Try that naybe, but a fakie manny? Can do boss! Practice like a shadow boxing version, as you brush yet teeth or sum shit. So get used to that muscle group. Then do them as fast as you can. I used to try an "bomb" my cul de sa ina fakie manny. So practice the balance and full speed.
Hope it helps and fakie crooks would be doap, godspeed VHS.
Whoa. Danger.

Can you FS No Comply? The motion is really similar and you can even practice the No Comply FS Shove, just don't turn your body. The scooping motion is exactly the same, then just add the jump from the pop and baby you got a stew going.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

You really have to push your board forward....your popping foot is in the pocket you push your foot towards the nose....I'd tinker around with how much you hang your front toes off too....some people it's lots, some a bit less....

I just have kinda got them switch now and I have to put my popping foot on the edge of the tail....regs is pocket, it's weird.  On the front foot, I say this because for lots of people the board goes behind them, so maybe not hanging your toes too much counters this....

i recently filmed myself doing a kickflip over stuff and realize my shoulders turn so frontside when I land I'm my upper body is literally turned 90 degrees frontside. Whatever I do I can't control my shoulders it's driving me crazy. I need like a straightjacket or something. I've even started practicing it with my arms like straight out facing forward and back and I still turn

not really a trick but i have been struggling to keep my legs tucked over the board for the "float" effect. any tips to getting that technique down? tired of stomping out everything and breaking boards prematurely
