Learn tricks faster

Below you can find some tips to learn tricks faster.



Be smart

When you're practising, don't make the same mistake over and over again.

Instead, think about what you're doing wrong and correct it.

More about this

Ask someone

If you're having trouble learning a new trick, ask someone who can already do it. They will be able to help you out.

I finally got my 360 flips down thanks to a tip from a friend to "lean into it".

Film yourself

Film yourself while practising. Sometimes it's easier to see mistakes on video.

Break it up

Break a trick up into smaller pieces, then learn the pieces seperately first.

For a noseslide, you can first practise to ollie onto the box, and to slide off at the end, without actually doing the slide inbetween.

Practise!

There's no magic trick to skateboarding, only practising a lot will get results in the end.

Skateboarding is not easy, but when you land that sweet trick it will all be worth it.

Good luck!
