Title: Learning new tricks: The Basics
Post by: Christian on March 04, 2014, 11:48:58 AM
What up to all the skaters out there! I've been skating "AGAIN" for a few months but can't remember how to do a few basic tricks as in the pop-shove it and the kick flip . Can anyone here please help me or recommend any tips for me?

Thanks 8)

Glad you're getting back into it man!

Don't attempt to do a kick flip until you got your pop shove it down. To do the shove, I normally focus all of my energy on my back foot. It's all about scooping your back foot behind you to get the board to spin into the 180. Don't focus so much on the pop until you can get the shove pretty well down. Then slowly put more pressure and effort into popping it when you shove ;)
