    Sorry guys, my fault.
    lol, good going Tyler! Now the whole Freestyling world is confused and its all your fault! Is there no end to your madness!?!


    Only a circus performer would think that slapping wheels
    on a piece of wood and using it to do tricks is a good idea.

    I was just curious...I know basic footworks like walk the dogs, endovers, monster walks, jaywalks, etc. Can anyone list some types of footwork or post a video of some footwork for me? It would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks!

    from what i've heard, a wheelie is just a trick in which you balance on your front or back 2 wheels. a manual is a wheelie that is ollied into. vert skaters used to call it a manual when they'd ollie onto the deck of a ramp, wheelie across it, and then drop back in.

    and if you don't know now you know, mistahhhh

    Well, I have big feet (12") and I use (or used.... for now) a 7 3/8" double kick mellow concave deck and the outer edge always kept on touching the ground. Can this still be the exception or is it still the rule? I mean... I like my shorter board and I can't complain.
