    Default axel stalls

    what am I doing wrong? whenever I try to axel stall I either go into a 5-0 or my board will stall but I'll keep moving (falling). I feel like when it goes into a 5-0 it's because I get a bit nervous and don't want to throw my entire body up.

    I just can't get my board to fall onto the coping correctly. what do I do?

    just bite the bullet and get on top of the coping, I almost power slide my back truck onto it, Try to get your full body weight above the coping so your just standing on it

    Hope this vague crappy description helped

    go up and hit it like you're going to do a 5-0 and instead of going through the full pivot drop your nose onto the coping.

    the big issue I have is slowing down enough to stop on the edge/coping/whatever, go more vertical less across whatever you are trying to stall on. Think about planting your rear foot/truck first and then push on the front that usually makes me stop
    that's gonna leave a mark.........yup gravity still works
