Learn kickflips first mate.

 

I disagree, although i can do neither and have been skating 6 years now!! My mate who's abit of a tech god started with heelflips,

my advice: go with what feels right for you

but yeh most people learn kickflips first, there what I like to piss around with, it seems a more natural way for the foot to go.

Go to a local school/shopping mall/parking lot with a bike rack. Hold your hands on the rack. Do the flip and push your body up with your arms. Let the deck flip under you. Then, land back on. That teaches you how to let the deck flip under you and when to come down. Or, sit on a bench or table and lift your legs and bring them down at the appropriate time. I prefer the bike rack because you can't hold your body forever, making it so you don't have too high expectations on how long to stay in the air wink.gif. -JD

No, really, learn kickflips first.

 

That holding yourself up crap stints your progression in my opinion, I can barely do it regardless of being able to do the tricks anyway.

 

Aside, I've been skating a wee bit the past two weeks, a few hours total! lol. Got back tre flips, nollie 360s and varial heels. smile.gif

I never agreed with people needing to learn certain tricks before doing others. I understand it's easier, but I used to be able to do fakie kickflips before I learned regular ones. And I used to do fakie nosegrinds before regular nosegrinds. I don't know. Heelflips and kickflips are similar, but different enough that they don't have to be learned in a certain order. Hell I know a guy that kickfliped before he could ollie.

 

Well I went skating today. Just bombed down some hills in my hood(word), and did some stalls, board slides and freestyle sh*t in a parking lot.

@All:I really cannot do kickflips, it seems really weird for me, when I try to do one I kick the nose of the board in the middle confused.gif thanks for the advice guys! also another thing I do is when I just skate along I push off with my left foot and have my right foot in the back middle of the board, I have never seen anyone in a regular stance like I am do this. Does anyone else do it?

 

I have been training myself to push off with my right foot lately.

 

Also my trucks are too fu*ckin loose, and it seems they cannot be tightened, they are destructos that came with my deck, I try tightening the kingpin but they never seem to tighten up much confused.gif

 

is there such things as locked trucks that you cannot tighten? mine are tooo loose confused.gif

 

anyway im going for a skate in about half an hour.

 

thank ya'll for your advice. ~SAN

Sounds like you push what is termed 'mongo pushing'!! its not nesacarilly a bad thing, but i find that skaters who push this way don't look so smooth and flowing on their boards, I push that way when i want to go switch. but I rarley go switch, usually my right foot is at the front and i push with my left, so i'm goofy. just keep trying to land them heelflips, and when thats done go and forget the street stuff and find a nice concrete bowl to carve cool.gif

As for your trucks, prehaps the thread on them has gone and thats why they won't tighten? loose trucks suck you cant begin to go fast on them without getting speed wobbles. Just keep trying to tighten them, it could take a while, and if they really don't tighten well get a new set of kingpins, or prehaps even some new trucks

I push mongo. I've skated for 10 years (When I say that I mean I've been doing tricks for that long, I've actually have been skating for around 13 to 15 years, f*ck HAS IT BEEN THAT LONG!) and pushing regular has never felt right to me. I've pushed mongo long enough so that it doesn't look as bad though. But I was sketchy as hell looking in my earlier years.

Tre flips have always looked so cool to me, but I can't do them. I can do a varial heels once in a while. I haven't skated really in a long ass time. Too snowy and cold. -JD

My advice to heelflips if you spin them behind you is to put your back foot on the tail experement with different areas on the tail because each place you put your foot it flips differently. Remember to always flick and jump while your moving forword towards the bolts like an ollie.

 

I thought kickflips were the worst trick ever it just felt so weird to me but I learned heelflips first and after I learned heelflips two weeks later I got kickflips. Now kickflips , varial flips and frontside flips are my favorite tricks. If you like heelflips then learn heelflips first.

 

My shoes ripped in three weeks they were lakai wall papers. I thought they were a really good shoe while they lasted ripped fast and the grip is pretty much gone and that will probably be torn in a couple more weeks. I just ordered some Nike SB Team editions I heard a lot of good things about them so im gonna give them a try.

Who do you guys think seem like the coolest skaters?

 

I know Terry Kennedy kicks ass because I filmed him and I forgot to send him footage! Ray Barbie kicks ass. So does Greco and Salabanzi.

 

I'll upload Terry's and Bastien's footage if I can find it.

Where did you film them?

 

I used to have some video of a few pro skaters. Tony Hawk, PLG, and Rune Gliffberg, at a demo in Ontario CA. And I had some video of Clyde singleton, at some school.

I reckon Bastien Salabanzi kicks ass so does Tom Penny, their sections in 'really sorry' kick ass,

I reckon JJ Rouseau is pretty sh*t hot as well, any one seen 'Freedom Fries'?

My favorite pro is probably Rune Gliffberg I love the variety of transitions that he can shred, Stu Graham is gnarly as f*ck as well definatley not tech but shreds the concrete and has no idea what pain means!!

I've recently been trying to pull off a double heelflip off of two steps, I'm getting there, but every time I go to land, I tend to lose my ballance so I haven't mastered it yet. Oh and I'm also trying a 360 fakie pop shove it, so hard though.

Ah, skateboarding. Haven't done that sinse highschool. The first trick I learned was a varial Kickflip (if you exclude the ollie).

So far the only tricks I could do are:

Kickflip

Varial Kickflip

Shove-it

Ollie

50-50

Boardslide

Primo/Rimo (sp?)

Bonless 180

Most steps ollied down are 6, and most steps I've done a trick down are I think 4 blink.gif

The only decks I've ever had are Elements. But most skaters in the west coast have a thing against element/bam so I kept it local in Ohio baby. Meh

Hell yeah, I just got some Lucky Black Beauties bearings.

 

Anyway, my favorite skater is either Danny Way, or Paul Rodriguez.

 

What types of music do you like to skate to, I prefer some underground rap, you know, something with flow so I can get into a rhythm.
