I hve a ridiculously hard time lokcing into nollie nose slide so I envy your nollie crooks, even tho your going for the nosegrind.

@silhouette, as always, thanks again for the in depth 360 analysis. Shits tuff. I keep trying a few every time I go out, i tend to get alittle dizzy after trying too many in a row, so might take me a little longer to get the trick.
I sincerly appreciate your feedback (and feebback from anyone else).

Been trying hardflip too. Having a hard time (lol, hard time with hard flips, who figured) with the ol back foot. Seems to work better when I keep my back straight. Try some more tonight if I make it out.

Take care boys.

Yeah my pleasure. Backside 360 ollie on flat was a tough one to figure out for me honestly, one of those tricks I worked on really hard to get to look like I wanted back in the day (no revert bullshit although at the time it was kinda trendier to revert) and probably the one I ate shit on the most too, landing 270 and slipping out the wrong way with the force of all your momentum can fucking suck. Gotta really focus on making the board go past that point and spin the full 360 by guiding it around with your toe so that that particular type of mistake has as little chance as possible of happening, then it gets a bit less scary to focus on actually landing back on the trick. Can't remember whether or not I covered that but staying in control also has to do with figuring out where to look during the whole trick too since it's such a blind one at first. On footage I can tell I'm already looking backwards by the time my tail hits the ground (meaning that your torso really has to get ahead of the trick) and then you get to watch the board under your feet the whole time. If the board gets ahead of you instead then it's game over.

I've been doing hardflips a lot lately (kind of weirds me out because as a kid those were never really my forte), it's one of those tricks you can feel whether or not you're set up correctly for the board to flip right before you even pop, you can sense it in the tension on the concave in a way. Back foot placement on this one for me is exactly the one of a 360 flip (I do my regular stance frontside flips from the same position too but that kind of makes people tick) except I pop straight down and only so slightly frontside, the pressure over the toe side back wheel makes the concave stick to my front foot so that it can really drag the board to my right side (I'm goofy). The flick is kinda weird because it has little to do with the one of kickflips where you flick off the nose more and going diagonal only results in bad form, here you have to force yourself to control that motion which is a bit unpractical at first, then again my hardflips are of the kind that looks like a frontside varial kickflip so maybe don't listen to me if you want to get vertical ones.

I can nollie front nose quite easily but nollie back nose terrifies me on tall stuff so as far as I'm concerned I kind of envy those too. I can usually pop a good nollie and float over the edge but then I'm just paranoid my front foot will slip off and get sandwiched in between the nose of my board and the edge of the ledge if I commit to locking in on anything that's bigger than a curb. Stupid mental block thing.

Facing a huge mental block with BS 5-0 on a medium tall ledge, I could do them no problems in a lower ledge back before lockdown. I can BS 50 and nosegrind it consistently but my mind just blanks out when it comes to back truck tricks, I end up not popping or rocketing my Ollie too much. Really regret not working on more BS tricks when I was younger.

And my extension stuff that needs you rolling backside to the ledge like FS 1/2 cab noseslides.
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"?

Fs half cab noseslides are not mechanically difficult, just super awkward but once you get used to the weird motion, they're not too bad with practice. Roll up to the ledge parallel ish, but with some angle. Look at the ledge as you roll up, but as you get ready to pop be ready to turn fully blind. As soon as you pop, you want to turn your whole body blind, look at your back foot and aim it onto the ledge into the noseslide. By that point you should feel like you're fully sliding backwards. Super weird but its mostly figuring out timing and spacing, as well as looking forward when rolling up but completely going blind the moment you pop.

Aye thanks @tzhangdox ! I only realized that eye point is so important in skateboarding, where you look is where you will land up. I'll give those a short on a low ledge this week for a start. I think I have that same problem with my BS 5-0 I think my eyes are focused too far ahead so no problem getting my front truck, not being able to see my back truck is preventing me from committing to it on the ledge.

If the ledge is too low its easy to overshoot that trick into a boardslide. But yeah, where you look is important. For back 5-0s, as soon as you pop, try to look at your back truck/foot. I dont do them much but when I do it definitely helps.

this is going to sound weird but when I do fakie frontside noseslides I pretend like Iím doing switch a nollie backtail. Sounds silly but thatís how I trick my body into doing it...

Landed 3 today, commit to the pop and focus on the rotation. Landed it just before the storm came, very shalom.

Nollie back tail shuvit is actually easier cause you just push your foot through the slide and then you shuffle you front foot back slightly and the board usually just pops out. I think to fakie is harder and to regular is the hardest.

lol what I mean by that statement is donít think of them as front half cabbing into a front nose slide, especially if you want to come out to fakie, itís the same movement as a nollie back tail, just switch (which sounds stupid in writing but is really what made them click in my head)

Can someone explain to me how that no comply flip thing up curbs works?  Iíve wanted to learn them since seeing Mike Rusczyk do one in his art bars part.  No idea what kind of witchcraft is going on there.

Its not a straight no comply you make the board to a slight front shuv. The one wheel hitting the curb or whatever instead of both at the same time is what makes it flip.

You do it exactly how you would do a no-comply up or over a curb (where the tail smacks the curb) but instead of having your back foot cover the whole tail, you use your toes to apply more pressure over the toe-side pocket of the tail. Because of the extra pressure, that part of the tail will smack the curb first (it's subtle) and once you let go of the board instead of jumping with it, because of the rebound it will flip like a kickflip. Basically without the flip you want your back foot centered to eliminate the rebound, whereas with the flip you're deliberately aiming for the rebound.

Try to put yur feet in a slight duck stance - back foot with toes pointed more towards the tail and heel lil higher up, and then same for front foot - just opposite of back (toes toward the nose. I find it can help a lil bit. When you wind up and ollie into the BSTS, flex your abs to try and make your whole upper rock solid and that might help. Look forward too. Youll get it.

Axel stalls. fakie tail stall on quarters.

basically any quarter trick that involves me getting on top of it. growing up skating the East Coast in late 90's/00's we had no parks, didnt have a friend with a miniramp.  so my transition skills never developed. skated ledges, manny pads, gaps, flat ground, etc. 

I can pop nice kickflips to fakie, nollie bs 180 and fs 180 , nollie bs disaster , nollie bs smith, but if I try to actually put my self on top of the quarter its just awkward as hell . I can slash 5050s/ 5-0's / bs smith etc. but can't train myself to stand up on them properly , always feel like I'm gonna slip out. Partly due to the small quarter at our park being pretty steep and there being no mellow transition , and the rest due to me feeling completely off balance when trying to reposition myself on top of tricks on coping.

360 flips. Park got rained out so we skated a flatland spot with smooth flooring. Never been able to do them except for 1 day 15 years ago. Managed to roll away with 6 out of 50 today. @silhouette's trick tips really helped, when I went 90% focus on  my back door I was much more likely to have a nice flip and at least land on the grip before slipping out. If anyone has any tips for not landing with your feet too close let me know

Backside 180 to switch manual. I don't know if it's basic, but feels like it shouldn't be this fucking hard.

I can't front tail for shit on ledges or transition. No way I'll ever do a front lip on a flat bar ever.

If anyone has any tips for not landing with your feet too close let me know
Aside from scooping directly underneath me(which is a pretty base level tip), I grip the board with my toes inside my shoe when I scoop, so it pops super high and looks tweaked. This also makes the scoop more consistent. To catch it clean midair I put my front foot a bit higher on the board and put more weight than usual in it so it also flicks and catches kalis like.
The other tip people might tell you is to put a lot more potential energy in your back ankle rather than your back foot. This is how you get that stanky leg tre (ew). I prefer to keep the weight in my foot to get that crazy good pop and catch but skatings all subjective.
Donít forget to jump straight up and slightly out or else you might land on the nose or miss the board entirely. If you keep landing on the nose itís because youíre jumping forward instead of up and out. (Forward being the way youíre rolling, and out being in front of you)This also comes from messing up your shoulders and can usually be attributed to scooping so hard, non commitment, or fatigue. Focus on getting a super clean scoop and isolating the fuck out of your shoulders when you jump.

360 flips. Park got rained out so we skated a flatland spot with smooth flooring. Never been able to do them except for 1 day 15 years ago. Managed to roll away with 6 out of 50 today. @silhouette's trick tips really helped, when I went 90% focus on  my back door I was much more likely to have a nice flip and at least land on the grip before slipping out. If anyone has any tips for not landing with your feet too close let me know
[close]
Aside from scooping directly underneath me(which is a pretty base level tip), I grip the board with my toes inside my shoe when I scoop, so it pops super high and looks tweaked. This also makes the scoop more consistent. To catch it clean midair I put my front foot a bit higher on the board and put more weight than usual in it so it also flicks and catches kalis like.
The other tip people might tell you is to put a lot more potential energy in your back ankle rather than your back foot. This is how you get that stanky leg tre (ew). I prefer to keep the weight in my foot to get that crazy good pop and catch but skatings all subjective.
Donít forget to jump straight up and slightly out or else you might land on the nose or miss the board entirely. If you keep landing on the nose itís because youíre jumping forward instead of up and out. (Forward being the way youíre rolling, and out being in front of you)This also comes from messing up your shoulders and can usually be attributed to scooping so hard, non commitment, or fatigue. Focus on getting a super clean scoop and isolating the fuck out of your shoulders when you jump.

Thanks for the tips, the 1 I have recorded my shoulder are somewhat pointing forward, in-line with the board. I am hunching over a lot. I noticed that even before I pop my board has already started rotating the 360 shove motion, and it looks like the board is even rolling ahead of me. The ground was very slick so getting nice and stable in preparation was a challenge too. Skinny Bones V3 in STF had me slipping all over the place.

Gear aside, I'll focus on the shove and where I jump - slightly out and up
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"?

I'm stoked you got some, yeah the feet together thing is a sign that you're in the process of overcoming your reflex of not catching the board but still too uncertain about the rotation to really stomp it. Sounds like you're past the 'under-rotated varial kickflip body varial-looking hybrid' phase that some people go through when they're still trying to find their scoop, but you still need to find the exact right scoop that works for you.

Back ankle is a good tip, personally when I do them (with pop, never been interested in the lazy ones) on footage it looks like my whole back leg sways to the side, it shouldn't feel like brute force though, I also do second jumping straight up but not necessarily out as ideally you shouldn't have to compensate for the board ever leaving its axis, instead I'd recommend trying to keep it under you with a somewhat vertical pop, then your front foot can just drag it upwards and then flick in the continuity of the motion as you essentially sit over the trick (as opposed to being hunched over it).

Definitely keep those shoulders in check (isolating them is a good way to put it actually) and focus on getting the full 360 of the board before you really think about the flip. It's actually easier on slick ground (making such spots a good place to work on that trick), on rougher terrain you really need to insist on pushing the board into the 360 a bit more.

Advice was definitely helpful, I forced myself to keep my shoulders straight and aligned with the board, catching was definitely easier. Took me 20 tries to land 5 instead of 50 from yesterday. My arms were swinging pretty wildly mid trick, the footage will attest to that. I think I may have even dabbed at 1 point.

I still need the assist of a smooth floor, could not get the round on rougher skatepark ground.

Noseslide to krooks coming along. Can slide and grind but cant seem to pop out or revert out. Its my shoulders, or lack of them turning. Try some more later on this week.

Have a good one boys.
