Fs smith trick tip

Smith grinds are pretty difficult grinds where you grind on your back truck, with your front truck sliding next to the rail.

Make sure you can do 50-50's and 5-0's first.


(Video by Enjoi)

  1. 1

    Approach the rail at an angle with enough speed.


  2. 2

    Ollie towards the rail, just like a 5-0.


  3. 3

    Press the nose of the board down, next to the rail.

    The tricky part is that you should lean backwards and support on your back truck. Don't put any pressure on the front or you will faceplant... on a rail.


  4. 4

    Slide untill the end of the rail, then lift up the nose of the board and turn it back so you can simply ride off.









Tips

  • Round rails can be easier than square ones.

  • Focus on leaning back as soon as you hit the rail.

Feeble hangs over the other way, the front trucks actually go over the rail, when doing the smith grind the trucks never go over the rail
