The main rule: when you approach the end of the ramp, you need to remember about three clicks. The first sounds when the board rises on the pipe, the second - the rear wheels touch the radius, the third - the front wheels touch the radius.

It is very important to turn your shoulders parallel to the board when you will turn around.

Weight is fixed on the heels. To perform this trick, you need to approach the radius, transfer the body weight to the leg standing behind, stand on the rear suspension, and only then put the front suspension on the ramp. At the time of the descent, you must correctly deploy the shoulders. You can’t do this trick with power slides, throw a board onto a ramp - it should be done only through the rear suspension.

Almost the same as Rock to Fakie, only with a turn.

To do it, you need to turn your shoulders in advance to the side where you will be turning (through the face). Then again, perform three clicks and only then expand the board. Unlike the previous trick, where you move in a switch (not in your rack), in this you will move just in your rack, because you will make a 180 degree turn.

Performs the same way as Backside to Rock'n'Roll, only Now you need to turn the shoulders in the other direction (through the back). When you call the ramp, your shoulders are already deployed, then the board makes three clicks and you turn 180.

A very scary trick for those who are just starting to ride, because many are afraid of landing. To get started, look at similar elements: how to get up a step and do an allie from the tail. You also need to be able to make a blunt with a nose row to learn how to feel a touchdown. Try this scheme first: get up on a blunt, do an allie on rock that fake and go. Happened? Then grab the blunt of that fake.

And do not forget that hackish blunt can end badly.

"Challenger" thanks for the help in preparing the material to Dima Bravichev and AllProAcademy employees.
