How to Bigspin [Trick Tip]
By mysterydu at 2015-12-26 17:30

Before you bigspin, you should first know:
-Frontside shuvits
-Backside shuvits
-180 ollies (helpful)

The bigspin takes a similar foot placement as a frontside shuvit, but you will adjust your back foot to hit the tail at more of an angle. This will help you get the leverage necessary in order to spin the board.

There are three stages to understanding this trick:
1. Proper foot placement and scoop
2. Wind up your body to help the rotation
3. Keep your shoulders over your feet and trucks

The upper body will do a 180. Some people like to wind their upper body up to help them spin around.

[Trick Tip Tuesday] How to Frontside BigSpin
By mysterydu at 2015-09-15 12:55

For this Trick Tip Tuesday, Andrew and Lucia, the Angelina Jolie doppelganger, from GoSkate.com, teach you how to consistently land frontside bigspins.

The first step is getting the proper foot placement. You should have your feet in a similar position to the frontside shuvit except your backfoot should be positioned at slightly more of angle. (See the video for a visual.)

A proper frontside bigspin starts with leading your upper body in the turning.

If you are having trouble spinning the board all 360 degrees, you can try the bigspin off a curb or stairset. This will give you more time to spin.

Trick Tip Tuesday - 5-0 Grind to Fakie Everytime On a Ramp
By mysterydu at 2015-07-07 09:00

Rob Dunfey, from GoSkate.com, teaches you how to consistently land 5-0's to fakie on a ramp.

Before starting this trick, you should first feel comfortable with:
-axel stalls
-5-0 grinds

Start on a small quarter pipe or bank ramp.. preferably 3 feet or smaller.

Things to remember:
-Keep your weight in 5-0 position
-Don't push your board out too far in front of you
-Sometimes it is easier to pivot from a salad than a 5-0 grind
-Don't put too much weight on the wheel outside the coping
