Thread: got any tips for spinning while grinding

  1. #1

    Default got any tips for spinning while grinding

    Ive seen a bunch of videos where skaters are spinning like 360s or 540s while grinding. Where do you start with this? Is there a good gateway trick? Any tips on working up to actually landing the trick? I don't mind falling but i do at the same time. I was thinking starting on my practice rail, approach fakie, spin into a fast slide, and lay it into a top soul. Any suggestions would help though, i must have these in my trick book.

    Is it possible to pivot a backslide 360 degrees on a rail? (not a switch up, a true pivot)
    I've seen it on a downledge, but never a rail. (clips would be appreciated)

    Lie, backslide 3 backslide? Maybe on a wide flat rail, I don't really see it hapening on a round rail.

    Your post is a little confusing, but if you are talking about spinning out of grinds, miszous seem like an easy trick for me. You've got a nice solid base to jump off from and your feet aren't too close or caught around each other so spinning is pretty easy.

    A royale or farv might be another good trick for that, you used to see people doing all sorts of switch ups out of those.

    Its essentially a backslide cess slide. That in itself isn't hard on a ledge cause of the flat surface. But yeah, you may be right about it not being possible on a round rail

    Ask Sean Kelso or Erik Bailey to do it. I'm assuming you're talking about Backside Backslide -> True Makio -> Inspin Front Torque -> Inspin Fishbrain -> Backside Backslide all in one continuous motion/grind?
    I'm pretty sure Erik Bailey did something really close to that in one of his Valo sections on a ledge, I'll go find it

    Is he spinning on the side of his soul plate? if so then fuck yeah I want to see that. I've seen the switch up. (going between the two through a makio) but I've never seen it as a continuous movement.
