whats your setup routine for tricks

some squat, some wiggle their toes, what works for you?
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

The ideal would be like Dollin where every trick your feet are the exact same but I don't skate often enough plus my feet are too big to get back to this.
Shuffling/shimmying is a major no no for me just put your feet where you think they need to be and leave it. Doing a trick out of manual, grind or slide you are allowed ONE adjustment any more and you fucked up.

Mild foot shuffling sometimes but for the most part I hop right into position. If you can get that motion down and practice loading up in a squat while you do it, you can setup for popping high pretty quickly. I made it a habit a few years ago and it’s been pretty useful

I watched Wade skate in person one time and now I cant stop doing the pants lifting thing

I know I do it and I hate it but it actually helps so much

When I do flip tricks especially on flat I tend to do this little pre bounce thing before I actually pop. I don't notice most other people do it and when I watch myself on film it annoys me. I also wiggle my feet a lot when learning new tricks until I know exactly where I like them. So when learning new flip tricks on flat it's like "wiggle, wiggle, bounce, pop" I don't know why and I don't like it.

Wiggle my feet into position, hit a fat Ryan Townley squat, jump/pop/flick, and pray to God I don't fucking die.

i do the same thing, especially on some more involved flip tricks... it's a bad habit i brought over from setting up when hitting rails on a snowboard.

I just broke mine down recently and noticed it worked best for me to do things in a particular order, first is get the appropriate speed for the trick you're trying (defines your entire momentum also throughout the trick), then it's front foot adjustment to wherever feels right inside the concave, then back foot compensates wherever the front foot is for the pop (usually mirroring the position), and then hips and shoulders last. That's mostly whenever I'm working on a flatground trick (rarely happens these days) or kids at the park want to play SKATE though, otherwise I'm a lazy fuck and a lot of my skating is doing any trick my feet already are set up for if I'm going to do a trick.

Unconscious setup that kinda bothers me when I check my footage. I do this little back-foot wiggle not even moving it, more little crushing a cigarette on the ground, right before popping. Totally useless as my foot is already on the right spot but after 20 years, it's definitely just a dumb muscle memory and don't think I can get rid of it

post-session update : no wiggle on switch/nollie tricks tho

I believe you are supposed to do this right after getting out of bed.


I like Yaje, but he really puts out some cigs on his setup.
Wade pant lift…PJ and P-Rod did this also. Wade the best tho.
I attempt to never watch footage of myself. It’s such a bummer. I pause for a long time, sort of ‘gathering strength’ to try and fling myself. And to slow down. I skate so slow. Terrible.

I shuffle my feet. I hate it. I wear through the sole of my shoes before the uppers.

 I need to squat down deeper.  I just barely bend my old ass legs to squat.

my feet do the little inwards point thing like prime PJ Ladd it's natural as well as i had been skating for a few years before i watched any of his skating.

I get a lot of compliments about how cool my flat ground looks and honestly my set up is probably the biggest reason.

Turn my hat sideways. If I’m wearing a beanie I flip it inside out real quick. Button up, then unbutton my flannel again. Same with zip up hoodies.

if i can push my board forward then take a couple steps and hop on rather than throwing down or pushing i swear my rate for landing tricks goes way up

I visualize Stevies 360 flip at the beginning of his part in the reason.

im not all that convinced foot placement matters a whole lot.  when you have something dialed in you can make it happen with your feet just about anywhere on the board.  this is why I dont think trick tips are all that helpful, other than focusing on pressure points (tiago is a great example here), because what works for one person won't work for you necessarily.

I dont have frontside flips, yet, but whats helping me is thinking about flicking straight off the nose, instead of off the side.  the angle of my foot on the board doesnt matter a whole lot.

its sick when you see someone wind up for a back 360 and theyre facing backwards before they pop, but I personally try to go for the element of surprise where you cant tell what im gonna do until im doing it.
