    Getting into caspers 1

    you could get into caspers from variety of ways such as from railstand,half kickflip, rolling in etc..

    First I would like to discuss getting into caspers from half-kickflip

    you need to know how to get the kickflipmotion

    step 1 : put your foot into kickflip stance

    step 2 : do a kickflip however, leave the fronfoot under the board so you are actually just pushing the board down rather than flicking

    step 3 : land the front foot off the ground and back foot on the tail




    Getting into caspers 2

    This time I would like to talk about getting into caspers from HS Railstand

    step 1 : you are in HS Railstand

    step 2 : Take off you front foot from the front trucks

    step 3 : push the front bolts on the griptape

    step 4 : jump as the board flips down

    step 5 : land your front foot under the griptape and back foot on the tail




    Getting into caspers 3

    now i would like to teach you to roll into caspers

    step 1 : start rolling fackie (easier)

    step 2 : put your front foot parelle to the board at the very end of the front bolts, put you back foot on the very top corner of the tail

    step 3 : as you roll fackie jump a little

    step 4 : as you jump use your back foot to flip the board over

    step 5 : land the front foot under the grip off the groun and the back foot on the tail


    *** how to balance?

    I've been trying caspers for a while and the key is to LEAN BACK.
    you need to lean back don't be afraid


    - Im open to any other suggestions -

    Taken from PersonalizedSkateboardShop.com:

    The Rail stand
    HS (Heel side)-First, put your front foot hanging far off of the toe side of your board, and your back foot hanging over the heel side. Put a good amount of pressure with your back foot to flip the board onto it's rail. Then your back foot should almost automatically come over the front truck. At the same time, lift your front foot up quickly and put it over the other side.

    TS (Toe side)-Put both feet on the bolts, but hang your toes over the heel side rail of the board. Then quickly put all of your weight on the balls of your feet. This should force the board up onto it's side. Do a litle hop so that your feet don't get into the way. Land with both feet on the wheels. If done right, this will make you feel cool.

    Casper
    There are two ways to do this trick. First, is to ollie into it. This is useful if you wish to learn to casper slide boxes. Set up your feet like a kickflip, but put your backfoot a little more towards the heel side of your board. Ollie, let the board flip halfway, and slide your backfoot forward, towards the toe side of the board. Keep your balance! Make sure neither foot touches the ground, sometimes putting more weight on your back foot helps. You can either flip the board halfway out with your front foot, or bring it around shove it style and sort of flip it the longways. Both look good. The other method is to not ollie. First, put your front foot on the heelside bolts, and your back foot should have the ball of your foot hanging off of the tail. Then, kick down with your front foot, and keep your weight off of the board. The board will spin, and make sure you hook your front foot on the board. Then just hold it for as long as you like, and flip out.

    The Handed Pogo
    So set up in a nose stop, with your back foot hooked underneath the board. Flip it, catching it on the back truck. You may need to use your front hand to do this, no worries, still feels cool. So you caught it on the back foot? Good. Now instead of bringing it into a no-handed 50-50, stop the motion between your legs. Ok, now hop around a little bit, and bring the board straight down, lifting up you leg on the truck, and put it on the bolts. G'job.

    Pressure flip
    This is the right way to do pressure flips. Set up with both feet on the bolts, but if you want the board to flip a bit faster, set your back foot more toward the heelside of the board. Snap your back foot down and towards you as hard as you can. At the same time, jump up in the air. Watch the board until you see the grip tape. Then land perfectly on the bolts.Go teach your friends.

    Tailstop Fingerflip
    For this trick, get into a tailstop. This will mean that your tail is touching the ground. You're not moving. Now put your front hand on the nose. Bend your knees. Now release and jump. swing your hand in a spiraling motion to make the board flip. Good. now watch the board, and when you see the grip, put your feet down. You're a genius.

    i done a page of basic freestyle tricks on this site ages ago, i think it was my first post, i managed to find some of them i saved on my computer.


    HS Rail stand:
    First HS means heel side, which means you will be pushing down on the heel side of your board coursing the board to role up into a rail stand with you facing the same way as the wheels. To do this, have your front foot in the middle of on the heel edge of your board and t helps a lot if you have your toes pointing strait forward up to the nose of the board and have your back foot hanging over the edge of the board on the bolts, have it so half of your foot is hanging over the edge of the board and think of the next motion as a scoop. Push down with your front foot and your back foot will stop the rotation when itís in a rail stand and then all you have to do is move your front foot on to the rail. Try it holding on to something to get the feel of it then go to the concrete.


    Role over Casper:
    Have you front foot about half up the board and your back foot on the tail (have your toes hanging over the side of the tail) your front foot should be on the HS edge of the board and your heel should be hanging over. Push down and scoop the back over and the hardest bit is keeping your balance because no part of your foot is aloud to touch the floor. To sort this it takes practise and you need to find a balancing spot, I still have trouble with these.

    Casper spin:
    This is a follow up from the role over Casper; this trick is easier because bye spinning it gives you enough motion to keep your feet from touching the floor. Basically once you have rolled a Casper over swing your shoulders around 180 and the board will 180 because of your weight and shoulders turning 180. Once you have completed the spin multiple things can be done.

    Casper 180 flip:
    This is my favourite move from a Casper, with this move think of your back foot doing the spin and your front foot doing the flip. So when your in a casper , with your back foot think of your self doing a 180 shovit and with your front foot just move it forward slightly because bye doing the 180 shovit the board usually half flips on its own.

    HS Rail Flip:
    Once you can get into a rail stand, try flipping it out, Iím now explaining a varial kickflip out of one, I have my back foot on the tail about 1 cm away from the wheels down push down NOT BACK. But just before your push down, with your front foot imagine your doing a pop shovit with it, so push down with your back foot and jump as high as you can, while practising the board may only spin 90 degrees this is solved bye practise and experimenting different foot placements.

    Rail to casper:
    While youíre in a HS rail stand, jump up and back and while youíre in the air use your back foot to bring the tail down witch will case the board to land in a Casper. This is really really simple, I donít really know what else to say about it apart from try not to jump to high and the hardest part is landing the Casper cleanly with out ether foot hitting the floor.


    Tail stand finger flip:
    Have your front foot on the front bolts and the back foot on the tail, push down on the tail so youíre now in a tail stop, now it is expectable to have your front foot on the floor for a second while you grab the nose of the board with your leading hand and spin the board in a heelflip direction, hold the nose with your thumb on the grip tape and your other 4 fingers on the opposite side of the board. So once you have flipped the board you can ether land in a second tail stand or land normal back on the board. Donít forget while youíre flipping it to bring your front foot back into it.

    I'm not sure if these are in those websites. I'm pretty sure they include it with it, but have a combination off another trick or variation.

    5050 stall(truckstand)
    Have your front foot on the ground. Put your back foot on the tail. Your board's nose should be rasied in the air. Get some of your weight in your back foot, and then bring your front foot up the bottom of the board. Pull up with your front foot and flip your board upside down. While the board is flipping over, catch the board on the front bolts with your back foot. When your back foot catches the board,try to land your front foot on the inside of the bottom truck. Stay in that positon for a second to get used to it and then take your back foot off the griptape and put your weight in your front foot. Whle the board is flipping over wrap your front foot over the nose and catch the board. Now smile and try it again.

    Heelside railflip(heelflip like flip)

    First get into a heelside rail. If you don't know how dead sparrow explains it above. Next slightly move your back foot onto the tail of the board. That will help flip the board alot and get the trick more consistant. Now put a little weight in your heels and then quickly shift your weight to your toes(if you don't shift your weight quickly the board won't flip)and jump as high as you can. Hover over the flipping board as it snaps of the ground into the air. The last part is to hardest,so when the board is completed it's flip try to land on the board. These are usually ugly(eye burning ugly) if you do them like this because if you are new to freestyle you aren't used to flipping the board like that.

    heelside railstand shuvit out

    Again get into a heelside railstand. Dead sparrow explains how above if you dn't know how. After that, Slide your back foot half way on the curve of the tail. If you don't the trick will be less consistant. This also makes the trick mor consistant; put a little weight in your back foot so the nose of the board is of the ground. Both feet at the same time, kick your front foot forward, and kick your back foot back. Try to straighten out your feet back into the shape of your board, and when the board is done flipping land back on the board. I'm not sure about this, but if you want to do 360 shuvits out just kick harder, jump higher, and put more weight in your back foot.

    whrilly bird(My signature trick, well I created it)

    This is quite an easy trick, yet looks hard. First off, put your front foot in the middle of the board with all of your foot exept your toe hanging of the side, and your back foot on the edge of the tail. Quickly slip your front foot of the board and let it touch the ground. If you don't do it quickly you won't get the board in the air. Now when the board flies into the air don't keep your back foot on the board. Catch it with your left hand in the middle of the board. Next try not to keep your left hand on there for too long or it starts to look bad. Now with your right hand grab the left wheel near the nose of your board. move your hand in a cicular motion. The board should spin around your hand. When you are done spining the board around caveman back onto your board. Now think to your self 'I have just done the gayest looking trick in the world'

    Fag flip (I couldn't think of any better name. This trick was also made by me)

    Get a nice steady speed. Put both feet on the bolts. Have only your toes be on the board and the rest of your foot hanging off. This next part has to be done very quickly to look good. Put all of your weight into your toes and your board will flip over. When it completes the flip and the board is upside down, jump up and land back on the board. Try repeating this quickly over and over in a row.

    Thats all i have right know. I'm still new to freestyle so I don't too much.

    Description: A finger flip is a very cool trick if done right. It's a toe side or heelside trick that is flipped with your hand. You should know what a tailstop and tailblock slide is. A tailstop is where The tail of that board is touching the ground and the nose is in the air. A tailblock slide is where you do this moving and your front hand is grabbing the nose.

    How to do it:
    1. Get into a tailstop and keep your front foot closer to the tail.
    2. Grab the nose with one hand.
    3. Jump as high as you can in the same position and try to flick the board either a heelflip or a kickflip with your finger muscles.
    4.Land it

    Now you got this down, try it in a tailblock slide.
    1. Go at a fast speed and tailblock slide.
    2. Grab the nose and flick.
    3. Ride away clean with a smiley face.

    After you got it:
    Now you got this down try doing a fingerflip varial.
    Or if you did your fingerflips heelside, try them toe side.
    Or maybe a double figerflip!!!

    If you have any questions post a reply of P.M. me.
    I was gonna say more more but Family guy is on.
    Bye and good luck

    Primo/Reemo

    Primo:

    To get into this trick you need your normal front foot that you use above the bolts and tilted a little toward the ground (dont make it hurt). Then your other foot should be near the bottom center of your board where you get most of your lip. Now, you have to lightly push your back foot down (<
    Reemo:

    This is the exact opposite way to get into primo, and you can (but dont always try) to do it while moving. First, you need to have your feet on the bolts but a little more foarward so you can hit the lip with the front of your toes on the other side. So, now push forward with your toes and jump (not at all high, but just enough to get onto the trucks) onto the board, and since the board will move forward jump lightly (<
    If you do master these tricks try to combine them doing forward and backward board flips and body varials landing on them.

    P.S. If anyone has a really good tip on getting in by ollieing please add that.

    Gazzelle Flip:

    To do this trick you must know how to do a primo and get really good balance on it.

    Ok, now that your in primo what you need to do is; curve your front foot so that it will probably make the board spin in 180/360. Move your other foot more over to the tail then the wheels, but still have a good balance. Now, you have to jump high while you kick you front foot forward and a little to the side, and your back foot has to smack/kick the tail to make the board spin a kickflip. It should either get a full 360 flip or a varial flip under you and dont be afaid to land.

    Good luck, takes a lot of practice!

    The Reemo DOES NOT EXIST. Primo is only if you are MOVING. You jsut described HS and TS railstands. And that is not a gazzele, either.

    Tail-hand-flip in 5 steps

    This is one of the most basic kinds of freestyle trick that you can do, it is basically a stationary fingerflip. It is also a good trick for begginers. It is an easy trick to do and is easier than it looks.

    Step 1

    Stand in stationary tailstop position (this is when you stand with your feet together on the end of the skateboard so that the nose is pointing up).

    Step 2

    Put your strongest hand or the one your feel the most comfortable with on the tip of nose.

    Step 3

    Now jump up and flip the board over by bringing your fingers up into the palms of your hands. Then let go allowing the board to flip under you.

    step 4

    Now you should be in the air standing over the board you have just flipped. Now turn 90 degrees ready to land.

    step 5

    Now after the board has flipped over once you need to land on the board.

    ther you have it a tail-hand flip in 5 steps. once you have learned this you may want to try learning double or even tripple tail-hand flips.
    Good luck!
