    For some reason I'm scared shitless of rotating that 180 out of the rock. Every time I've tried it I bail out and I can't commit for the life of me. Now that I actually have 180's on flat I might be able to give it a shot, but even thinking about it gives me the creeps lol. The rock to fakie was the trick that got me back in to skateboarding actually. We got a shitty "temp park" with a qp, and my buddy was trying to do it. One day I just felt like it was do-able even though I hadn't been skating for years. Ended up pulling them off, and I'd have to say they're my most consistent transition trick. I can even double grab, nosegrab and tailgrab while doing it. I feel so much more natural just popping up over the ramp and getting back down fakie, only gotta watch the speed/possible hang ups. Now that I think of it any trick I can do on transition I do to fakie. Makes the learning curve pretty steep but whenever I get something I feel a great deal of accomplishment.

    I wish I could front rock well. I can deck regular rock n rolls okay depending on the ramp, but front rocks are so scary to me.

    to be honest i think it looks and feels alot better when its rocked in the center of the board as opposed to back trucks right up to the coping

    I'm with Whitetrash. Rocknrolls aren't so bad to me. If I don't feel good about one, I can easily feel it hitting the lip coming back or bail if I feel unbalanced. With rock-to-fakies, I could be feeling alright about it, and then BAM I slam from hanging up.

    ^^ Alright, that makes sense, and that does look good! My initial visual was that Bam clip which looked pretty terrible, but it definitely doesn't have to be fully decked to be a good one. I appreciate a decked one, but you can't really slide it or anything.


    I'm gonna try some rock n rolls tonight.

    try whats essentially a layback fs rock n roll slide? not sure all i know is i go up on an angle, drop my hand and slide the fuck out of it and slide it back in. quite an easy one that catches people off guard and makes a good screech when you bring it back in.

    Your bushings are probably not broken in enough, and when you re applied that 1 truck it is now off balanced from the bottom. Loosen up both of your trucks to the same feeling then slowly tighten from there to your liking.

    I wouldn't own a skateboard with out all the proper tools to repair, the right tool for the right job will save lives.

    But you have a dad so have him fix all your shit, he will have the simple tool selection needed to do the trucks if he fixed your top truck in the first place. It will just be like 1 minute, loosen up bottom truck to the top truck. Ride in a circle from left to right then right to left and tighten your trucks up until you need it.

    Hell your skateboard could only ride in a straight line if you want
