50-50 fakies on transition
« on: July 14, 2007, 06:35:40 PM »
i can do them the bullshit way by pivoting in on my nose, but i can't get them the cool powerslide way that all the cool kids bust out.  my problem is i can't unhook from the coping to come in, any tips?

i learned how to revert it frontside before backside
try not looking at the coping and just keep your feet light

try to do the nose pivot thing but move your front foot back...it actually kinda works that way...then start using  your back truck more and more....

bothersome

i can do those, but that trick is just a matter of doing a pivot fakie, but with training wheels.

i shift my weight from my outside wheels too my inside wheels to get over the coping and use my weight shift to aim and then once the wheels have cleared the coping it's just like a power slide on flat land. to bail easily you can just complete stop or lean back and sit on your butt if you mess up (think childress bail). going faster makes them easier for me. pretty easy to learn

I swear on my life 5-0's to fakie are easier.
Just go from 5-0, to leaning forward and tipping your board to your wheels now touch the tranny, to a salad, the scoop your tail real hard to unhook. The hardest part is comming down, because you have to do a quick switch nosemanual down the tranny. The first 100 tries, you will fall on your hip.
It sucks.
