Fs 50-50 trick tip

The 50-50 is the basic grind where you slide on a rail or curb with both your trucks. If your ollies are good, learning how to 50-50 should be pretty easy.


(Video by randomdonkey)

  1. 1

    Approach the rail at a 20 degree angle in the ollie position.



  2. 2

    When you're close enough, ollie onto the rail with both your trucks.






  3. 3

    If you're going fast enough, you'll grind over the rail. Keeping your balance should be easy, unless it's a round rail.



  4. 4

    When you're nearing the end, lift your nose a little bit and just ride off.





Tips

  • Aim for the middle of the rail, and as you get better you can make longer grinds.

  • Wax is always a good idea, especially on curbs.

If you don't feel comfortable with actual 50-50s, you could try a slappy 50-50 with whatever you could ride onto. Curbs, the sides of slopes, the sides of quarterpipes, the sides of funboxes, the coping on slopes and miniramps, and whatever else you can do.
