what up is Brandon here I'm walking back to the tip trick series the series where I teach you a new trick and this week I'm gonna be revisiting the Royale so what is the Royale where I was like a frontside only your feed a tweet and by that I mean you're grinding on not just the H flock but you're grinding on the H flock and the backside plate on your dominant foot because of this the trick is a lot more stable than their frontside once you've learnt it and it just looks a little bit better too but that's just my opinion now the Brielle is a great trick to learn and having your vocabulary just because a lot of switch ups lead to it and it's around quite a safe trick it's been my save trick for the longest time but really though is it can be quite difficult to learn from the start but hopefully that can happy with that one so the Royale was actually invented by a New Zealander which is super cool and his name is Brooke Howard Smith if you want to beat it and dip dive into this trick and I recommend checking out the book of grains website page about this trick there they have animations of how the trick looks and you can look at it from a bunch of angles really useful so check that out they'll be linked in the description that being said though now let's talk about my recommendations for learning this trick my first recommendation is that you have mastered the frontside and by that I mean you can do it both ways with your dominant foot in front and behind that'll help you a lot with learning this trick my secret recommendation is that you learn this trick on wedge just because I think it's a bit safer for all age than any other obstacle my third recommendation is that you either skate freestyle auntie just cuz this is a trick prone to wheel bite so if you skip that it'll make it a lot easier to learn my fourth recommendation is that you loosen your skates a little bit and I don't go too crazy here because you could definitely break your ankle if you Ava skates too loose but you want to have them just loose enough so that you can put your soleplate to the ground without it hurting and my final recommendation is that you be patient with this one because this is a hard trick to learn some people get it straight away other people were really struggle to master it I know I personally really struggled to learn this trick it was a long time there I thought I was never gonna learn it but then one day it just clicks so you're just got to hang in there and hopefully I can help you get it a bit sooner so now we took about our recommendations let's move on to my step by step guide for how to do the rail so step one what we're gonna do is stall this trick on the ground if you have a nice crack in the concrete that's really flat I recommend doing it there so that you can learn the line up the h-block for my reference clips I was doing it on the carpet just because I forgot to film the clip when I was out skating but you know feel free to just do any flat surface what we're trying to do here is just really learn to balance in the rori opposition and put weight on a soleplate on the side so to choose which way you should tilt your feet the way I would recommend is that you do it with your dominant foot in the back but that I mean your dominant foot is one that's sliding in the backside play are we doing this remember to squat down you want to bend your knees think about putting weight on your toes and keep your shoulders above your feet you should be very stable just standing there and yeah we're just trying to learn the angle of having you so quite touching the ground if it does hurt or you skate to digging into you try squat down a little bit more it still hurts you should loosen your skates a little bit not too much though because like I said you could break your ankle if you do it too much once you're feeling really confident and stable in there try just jump into it on the ground see if you can land straight on the soleplate and stuff and then once you're feeling really confident with those move on to the next step so for step two what we're going to do is step into the store you want to step up with your dominant foot and place it in the backside play in each block before stiffen your whole body the whole boys up think the same keep shoulders above your feet keep away to your toes it needs beat but what you want to do here is really learn their point with your h-block and back side play balancing on the corner of the ledge so really just keep steeping into it really teach that foot what that angle is once you're confident that you have taught your foot this specific angle for the Royale move on to the next step so for step through I mean jumping two foot into the Royale store on a Ledge so before you start jumping in it I want you to really prepare for this slip out it's much worse for you to slip backwards they've been towards your dominant foot then it is for you to deck forwards when you're grinding so try compensate that backwards so Dutch I think leaning into it more leaning towards your non-dominant foot but once again the same tips as before your foot should be more confident and knowing there Rory our angle now so just jump into it and then keep your shoulders above your feet in your knees bent and your weight towards it toes in terms of weight distribution 65% your weight should be on your dominant foot so the foot that's in the backside plate and the 35% should be in the other foot so most your weight is on your dominant foot and once you're feeling really confident that you're landing in straight into the groove every time you try stall this I don't mean landing fronts I've been tweaking it in I mean landing into your backside plate then you can move on to the next step which is step four so if it's step four we're gonna try slide the Royale so before we even try say this I'm gonna recommend that you go do some nice slow front sides in the same way you'd be doing the Royale so with your dominant foot behind if you're doing it my way that way you can just get some confidence and you learned that your non backside foot will be able to save you if the other foot messes up so we're in no rush here so what I want you to go nice and slow for this one no here's where slippery now becomes a real issue when you're rolling up to this just really think again about not wanting to slip out backwards towards your non-dominant foot you know counter that flip it's much better for you to stick forward than it is to slip out back if you are sticking forward it's pretty easy to save what I do is you just want to do a quick 180 and roll backwards parallel with the ledge but yeah it's the same tips as before you know we jump up to it you want to put weight on your toes we're gonna bend your knees and you're gonna have your shoulders above your feet if you are sticking don't lean back I just want you to get lower okay where I was definitely a trick that gets easier the more you do it I think that's because you'll make your own groove in your skate and that groove will make the trick just a lot more solid it will have like one place where it sits so you know every time you get it you're helping yourself get more consistent with it in more ways than just one now for coming out of this trick there's two ways to do it either come out forward or backwards just do whatever one feels more natural just go out the flow of it you know now if you do accidentally slip out backwards better to fall onto the ledge then onto the corner that's where I really want you to have your shoulders above your feet and if it's slipping out just collapse collapse and lie on top of the ledge don't try grind the glitch on an angle because that's when if you do slip out and you're gonna land on the corner and get much for her once you've got confident you can slide things at a nice slow speed you can move on to step 5 now for step 5 we're just going to do the Royale on the whole obstacle so I need you to come into this one with a lot of confidence you know go with more speed you're gonna try slide the whole ditch now tip hole in the hole it works for every trick just look towards the end of the obstacle and nine times out of ten you'll make it to the end once you've land three of these in a row you've officially learnt the real congratulations [Applause] now just before we go I've got some quick bonus tips returning on some rail you're going to have no problem with it sticking so really think about compensating for that slipping out backwards because you ain't going to get wheel but it's gonna be much better to fall into a frontside and to slip out and if you're learning this on coping remember to jump a little bit before the coping and really think about coming back into the ramp although it is safe just go up grind and then roll on the top that's really easy gets stuck in a cycle weird that's all you can do so just remember to come back in the ring and that's it for this tutorial I really hope you learnt there royale if you wanted a deeper look into the trick once again I recommend checking out the book of grinds it's a really good non-profit website super useful tool for learning new tricks so definitely check that out it's linked in the description let me know what you want me to do a tip trick on

    The royal took me years to learn, I would always slip out. But once I had it it turned into my safest, most default grind. It’s all about getting your weight between your dominant foot’s h block and backside plate.

    One tip that might help: Don't only position your feet / legs correctly but also pay attention to your arms! I think that royale is one of the tricks that need really good arm positioning in order to be done. Personally I try to point my both arms to the direction of the grind in order to counter balance and put some weight in front. Arms also help to position the whole upper body better.

    I did everything backwards. I learned royales before frontsides, flat instead of rocker, and learned them on rails before ledges lol. Frontsides hurt my knees for some reason. Now i gotta learn everything again lol. Great video man

    Sry loosening your Skates to learn a Royal is plainly wrong. It will only make the trick rly hard to learn correctly once you got used to it that way. I know that cause i did it wrong when i was younger. Did it with nearly opened fattys. I had a hard time when i started again at 36. The trick is about positioning your knees the correct way and NOT about bending your ankles. Look up Brian Aragons video about it.

    Big up for your vids and work anyways. ❤️
