Hey, what’s up, guys?
I’m Nicole Hause, and I’m a skateboarder
from Stillwater, Minnesota. I’ve been skateboarding
for 12 years, and I’ve been competing
in professional contests for the past six years, and I just got named to the 2019 national
skateboarding Olympic team. Today, I’m gonna teach you
guys the backside disaster. So, in order for it
not to be a disaster, I’m going to give you
some trick tips. We’re going to roll up
to the coping, turn 180
and land on top of the coping, and then rock back in. So, let’s go get it. So, there’s a few things
with the backside disaster because it is a little tricky, there’s a reason it’s called
a disaster. So, the approach is
super important. As you’re approaching
the coping… …you’re going to be
turning toe-side. So, you’re kind of gonna
turn your shoulders as you approach. And then
when you get the approach down, you’re gonna wanna commit to
turning a full 180 backside. The tail is the back
of your board, where your back foot sits, so that would be my left foot. In the backside disaster,
you use your tail a lot. When you get up to the coping, your back foot and your
back toe scoop the tail. That’s what kind of pops
you with your shoulders to turn that full 180. If you do it soon enough, you’ll land
right on the coping. And then the last part is committing that front foot
to rock over the coping and roll away. If the coping is here, you need to put this
pressure on your front foot so that it rocks
over the coping. If you don’t put enough
pressure on your front foot and you don’t get far
enough over the coping, then you get stuck like this and then you fall all
the way to the bottom, and it’s not fun at all. I’ve done it, but, the way you can not do it is to fully commit
on that front foot and push on it hard so that your wheels
rock you over. Some things that will help
you into the backside disaster is just doing backside
180s on the flat ground: it’s virtually the same motion,
it’s just a transition; doing it soon enough
so that you land perfectly square on the coping; and then,
the last part is committing to putting enough pressure
on your front foot so that you actually rock
over and into the bowl, and you’ve done it,
you’ve landed it. The backside disaster. Thanks for watching, check out more of my tips
on the Olympic channel. And that’s the
backside disaster. I don’t know, is that good?

    Skateboarding doesn’t get nearly as much recognition and respect as it deserves.
