Flatground challenges?
« on: February 20, 2024, 09:37:53 AM »
Iíve been day dreaming at work about working on some flatground lately. Iíve been thinking about random challenges like seeing how consistent I can get with a fliptrick and what not.

Yall ever come up with some random flatground challenges for yourself or the homies? Also, if anyone has tried seeing how many kickflips, or any fliptrick, they can do in a row. Whatís your record?

The clockwork "rule"

All rotations go in the same direction. Meaning, after a Bs 180 you can only do 2 rotations. sw fs 180 or bs halfcab.

If I want to do a fs halfcab (which I do often ;) I have to do a fs 180 (no comply) or learn proper nollie fs 180s.

The tricks only count if they are popped well, you ride away clean and don't have to push in between.

If you apply the clockwork "rule" to 180s and shuv its alone, you can skate flatground for hours.


4 tricks in a line without pushing is another fun one.

I don't like doing the same trick back to back, except for the no popped shuvs. Those are fun. But only two in a row, I think it would look a bit strange if you do like 20 kickflips in a row, but that's just my opinion.

Another fun one.
You know in parking lots, they have these stripes on the floor, like where you have to park the car? Ollie over them. That's the quick ollie challenge.

yep! see 2 threads below for background, but for the first time in 28 years of skating I'm in 'training mode'. Today I did 10 ollies, 10 f/s 180's, and 10 half cabs. Planning to step this up daily.

Manuals and nose manuals for whatever pre-determined distance I feel like that day (crack to crack, line to line, etc.)

Still canít pop into nose manuals for shit, but if I could, oh boy would they go forever.
Another brand new account coming in on some absolute fuck shit

Used to do 5 consecutive kick flips every session. Then once Iíd learn something new 5 in a row on whatever it was. Definitely helps get shit dialed but frustrating as hell on an off day.

we used to play skate but you had to do a kickflip straight after your trick on every trick done, if you missed the kickflip after a front shuv say, the front shuv is not a make.

20 kickflips in a row
20 heelflips in a row
land every flatground trick in your trick bag back to back, no misses
bigspin straight 8
SKATE but you have to land the trick three times consecutively to set, and to match.

That could possibly turn into the longest game of skate ever. ^^ But I like the idea.

The clockwork rule sounds like a good one for warming up sometimes. The last session I tried doing no push lines and it was definitely harder than I expected where I would lose all speed after the second trick. Fun regardless but takes some patience for sure

This is how I start every session. If I don't do all the shoves I usually have a miserable session. I filmed it once when skating flat on a massive cruiser board that had oj keyframes which I want another pair. Great cruiser board wheel.

Doing this gets my legs warmed up. It also made me realize I love fakie front shoves.
