I was just comparing your guide and the one on the A-Z skateboarding tricks website for the bs/fs, and they differ a little bit. Here is the link the other guide:

http://www.dxinteractive.com/skatetr...dbackside.html
Everything is the same for bs and fs, EXCEPT for fakie, they have them switched around.

At the end of your guide, it says:

"Ok so now you know all you need to know about B/S and frontside, the same rules apply to when doing fakie, switch and nollie. So If you can see what is in front of you for the first 90-180 degrees and you are doing a Fakie 180 you know you are doing a Fakie F/S 180, or a F/S Half-Cab. If you are doing a nollie 360 and for the first 90 degrees your back is facing the direction you are going and you cannot see what is in front of you then you know you are doing a Nollie B/S 360."

In a world where nobody knows whats bs and fs, that just made it a little more confusing. Could you help?

Thanks alot...it is so clear to me now. I already had the grinds part of it without a probelm, but I couldn't understand why a f/s pop shuvit went kinda behind me and a b/s went in front. I get it now!! What about for a 50-50, when you line yourself up and ollie straight onto it??

Roboman's site is right. You face backward half way through a frontside half cab and forward halfway through a backside half cab. With nollie, switch, and regular, it's the other way.

areg, for goofy skaters, clockwise is frontside, counterclockwise is backside

^ I agree. This tip really needs fixing... I mean even just watching KOTR clears that up.

Haha you use that reference so much. I could re-write that section if someone is willing to edit it in?

ok... it depends which way the front of your body faces when doing spins with any kind of trick. For fs, you ollie and the front of your body is facing the direction you are going, for instance, riding down a street and you do a 180 and turn so that your stomach is facing forwards... that is fs. it doesn't matter what stance you ride in, it's just the way your body faces. Got it?
