HOW TO GO FASTER ON A SKATEBOARD? PRO TRICKS 

Old-School Skateboarding Tricks That Are Making a Comeback

Boneless

The boneless remains a timeless and cool skateboarding trick. Despite its old-school roots, it has never truly gone out of style. What makes the boneless appealing is its accessibility, as it can be attempted by skaters of all skill levels. 

Also, it provides room for creativity, allowing for 180s, flip tricks, drops, or gaps.

Railflip

The Railflip, also known as Primo Flip, stands as an advanced skateboarding maneuver. In this technique, skaters stand on the edge of the board, executing a flip to transition it to the opposite edge or land on it in a standard position. 

The Railflip allows for a diverse range of combinations involving flips and shuvits, providing a platform for creative expression within the skateboarding community.

No Comply

Another revived old-school trick is the no comply, which has almost become a trend in itself. 

Skaters are incorporating this trick into various settings, and its versatility is noteworthy. With numerous variations, the no comply adds a rad element to any skateboarding line.

Slappy Grinds

The slappy grind, often done on curbs without an ollie, is another personal favorite. Executing this trick involves forcefully pushing the board onto the curb, locking into a grind, and sliding. Adding wax to the curb enhances the experience.

THE BEST SKATEBOARDING TRICKS FOR BEGINNERS

Bertslide

The Bert Slide, a stylish and straightforward trick, involves crouching down, placing a hand on the ground, and sliding the board in a 180 or an arc. This trick, popularized by the legendary Z-Boys, looks especially cool on a bank!

Handplant

Handplants, a challenging old-school trick, have made a comeback. While not as easy as some tricks, they offer versatility, suitable for flatground, quarter pipes, or rails. 

Skaters can get creative with handplants in various settings!

Wallride

Wall rides, though never unpopular, have evolved with skateboarders taking them to new heights, incorporating larger wall rides over gaps or down stair sets. Skateboarding continues to push boundaries, making even classic tricks like wall rides more extreme!

Hippy Jump

Popularized by Mark Gonzales, the hippy jump involves jumping off the board over an object, letting it roll underneath, and landing back on top. Skaters today are pushing the limits with hippy jump flip tricks, adding an exciting element to their lines!

Transition Skating

While not exactly old-school, transition skating’s resurgence cannot be ignored. Skateboarding was initially bowl and pool-oriented until street skating gained dominance. 

THE BEST SKATEPARKS IN CALIFORNIA YOU GOTTA TRY!

Now, a new generation of skaters excels in transition skating, showcasing their skills in both pool footage and feature-length company skate films. Check out videos from Raven Tershy and Ben Raybourn to witness the prowess of this new breed of tranny skating!
