Big drop street skating

Big drop street skating is a style in skating that involves big stairs, large gaps, and a lot of freaking guts.

The reason why most people don't clear the stairs is because of fear. It took me a week before I could ollie a 4 set. I knew I was capable of it I just didn't feel like landing it because of fear.

Nollies and fakies seem wierd down stairs but it is all mental. There is no difference between a 12 set and an 8 set. The difference is all in your head.

After you learn ollies down stairs, you can start with basic flip tricks. Bend your knees and once you got small stairs down move on to the bigger sets.

If you fall that is because you were afraid.

Big drop street skating isn't hard. It's all mental.

The longer you stand there and think about it, the scarier it will seem.
