cess vs powerslide
« on: April 10, 2022, 11:00:46 PM »
i grew up on cess but there's almost no point saying it now cause people are just like "what?"

i feel like people around me were still saying cess up to like 2oo5-ish. the tony hawk games never had cess or powerslide in them did they? 'cause it definitely seemed to change one foot ollies to ollie norths.

one of my friends when we were young started calling them speedchecks, which i can appreciate contextually, but it's not always a literal speed check.

anyone ever call them anything else?

anyone got any info/perspective on that?

Wasn’t cess slides an Aussie thing?
There’s a few tricks that we had different names for back in the day, too regional specific for anyone else to understand them though…

Did you use 'cess slide' in a street context? I know the term 'cesss slide', but always associated it with vert skating. Think there was a (vert) trick tip or a sequence in Thrasher where it was used.

I've only ever heard of the term 'cess slide' being used by rollerbladers back in the early 2000's. never heard of it in a skateboarding context.

Also heard cess slide a bunch in Aus. Altho where I'm from there were a ton of wrong names. Also would heard powder slides. 5050s called truck grinds, axle grinds. Hardflip meant the illusion way and frontside flips etc like that were called 180 hard flips.

Alleyoop slide….despite this trick tip more or less died with skateparks ending and the emergence of ramps and street skating.

Someone saw a caption and then called all things sliding as cess slides. There’s some names people just don’t want to let go off…..

A cess slide is on transition, a power slide is on flat. That is what i've been raised to believe

I believe a Cess slide involves an alley oop.  check the Nash sequence.

This is what I remember. Start by carving frontside across the wall then slide a backside 270 while still traveling the direction of the frontside carve.

Those who said an alley oop slide on vert are correct. 70s/80s vert trick. Here’s one that’s almost correct:

He needed to carve into them a little harder but you get the jist.

I believe the powerslide was the Ty Slide for a while, after Ty Page (RIP).

I started skating in the eighties in Florida. We used cross slide and power slide interchangeably.
