Hi, my name is Justin Lauria, and today I’m
going to show you how to do a roll in on a quarter pipe. Now, the easiest and safest way to start a
run from the top of a quarter pipe is to rest your tail on the deck like this and drop in,
but if you start to get bored of doing it that way and you want to start your run with
a little extra style, you can do a roll in instead. As you learn this trick, take your time with
each practice step and try not to progress too quickly, since while it’s certainly possible
to fail at it without getting hurt, you’ll be dropping from a little bit higher than
you’re used to, and if you don’t fall properly, you could sustain an injury. However, if you skate mostly within your ability
level and slowly push your boundaries as you progress, you should be able to handle the
new challenges without any problem. Alright, so now, to get started, first you
want to make sure that you’re extremely comfortable rolling off of curbs and ledges. For a video covering that topic, you can click
the link above or in the description below. A really useful practice step for roll-ins
is to practice rolling off of a curb with a little bit of a lip on it, like this one
has. This is similar to what you’re going to be
rolling over at the top of a quarter pipe, so practice keeping your front wheels in the
air and make sure to take the weight off of your back wheels and give them a really
good nudge just as they come into contact with the bump at the end so your board
doesn’t get stuck. Once you’re comfortable with rolling off of
a curb, you can move on to the second practice step, which you’ll perform on a flat ramp. For this practice step, rather than just rolling
over the top of the ramp like you normally would, try to simulate what it would be like
if the ramp was a quarter pipe instead. So as you approach the top corner of the ramp,
lift your front wheels up like before and nudge your back wheels over the edge with
enough force to send them into the air as they roll over it. Once the back wheels have cleared the top
edge, slam both sets of wheels down onto the slanted part of the ramp and lean forward
enough to compensate for the fact that the angle of the ground you’re rolling on has
changed dramatically. Once you get the hang of doing this, you can
start to approach the ramp at an angle, with your back facing the bottom of the ramp, and
turn into the maneuver with a frontside rotation like this. Not only is it rare to find a mini ramp with
a deck long enough for you to approach straight on, but it’ll also be easier for you to land
more towards the top of the ramp if you reduce the amount of momentum you have in this direction
as you enter the move. Some people prefer to approach roll ins from
the other side and use a backside rotation like this, but in my opinion, the frontside
rotation is easier, so I would recommend starting with that one first. If you’re able to find an obstacle at your
skatepark that looks like this, it’s going to be another really good way to practice
your roll ins, as it’ll help you get used to the feeling of rolling off of the edge
of something, having your wheels go into the air, and then landing on a steeper incline. Once you’re feeling confident that you have
the motion down on flat ramps, it’s time to take it to a quarter pipe. As you roll slowly alongside the coping in
preparation to do the trick, start to lean your body toward the inside of the ramp like
you would if you were doing a frontside carve in a bowl. This will help redirect your momentum in the
right direction and put you in the mindset of being on the inside of the ramp before
you actually send your board over the edge. Just like you did on the flat ramp, hold your
front wheels up and give your back wheels a nudge right as they come into contact with
the coping to help them get over the bump without getting stuck. Once your back wheels are clear, slam all
four wheels down on the inside part of the ramp and roll to the bottom, leaning forward
and keeping your eyes focused on where you’re heading rather than down at the board. If you’ve been on the fence about trying this
move out, I hope this video gives you the confidence and the information you need to
go ahead and give it a shot, because once you get it, you’ll see that it’s really fun
and also it opens up a lot of opportunities for tricks you’ll be able to do in the
future. Make sure to like the video and share it with
a friend if you think they could learn something from it and as usual guys, never stop improving.

    What are the major things that can go wrong doing this? Obviously hit the coping and falling face first into the transition, but have you experienced any other problems?

    This may be a dumb question, but when you say "nudge" do you mean you push down your back foot a little as if it's a mini pop? Or do you mean I take the weight off of the back foot and pull the board forward a little with the front foot?
    Thanks for your Vids bro. Major help!

    I know how to roll in sideways on small coping quarter pipes and copingless quarter pipes up to 5 feet. I was at the skate park a week ago and after doing a really good boardslide for the first time I started rolling to a fair sized quarter pipe. Its at a bit of a slope rolling to it so by the time I got there I was extremely fast and missed the transition completely and went straight to flat in a position you would be in if your were gonna hit the tranny. So basically I broke my arm and now i have a feeling im gonna be scared now.
