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.
