I wanted to talk to you about a basic of skateboarding
which is simply sliding 180 degrees when you’re skateboarding without using your hands. It’s
a good way to slow down, stop and also prepare you for fakie tricks without having to push
and ride fakie. It involves riding along, preparing your body for the turn, twisting
your body abruptly and using your back foot to scoot your back wheels forward. The trick
is to keep it all in one continuous motion. When you hear the sound of your squeaking
wheels, you’ll know that you are doing the right thing. Let’s try one. Make sure to feel
the turn in your body before you actually turn. This will prepare your legs and your
upper body for the twist.
If you slide successfully, you’ll find that you are now rolling fakie, you’ve turn the
board completely 180 degrees without having your feet leave the board ever. Let’s try
it one more time to demonstrate and remember your back foot scoots the back wheels. Your
front foot simply guides the front wheels to match up with the back wheels action. Using your arms to twist your body is an important
part of learning the slide keep practicing these and eventually you’ll be able to do
them everyday.

    I tried this going down a ramp in a car park. My idiot friends who cant skate either told me to put loads of weight on the front of the board then push the back round. ended up bailing hard and going upside down on a fence.
