1. Practice reverse sliding
Backslide isn't technically a move, but it's one of the skills you should learn, as you'll need to apply backslide as you learn more advanced moves. This technique is basically just normal pedaling, but using the other foot to pedal forward. For example, if you normally skate with your left foot forward and your right foot, an underfoot slide is to bring your right foot forward and use your left foot instead. Master this skill and you can unlock a variety of moves based on it.

2. Drop-ins

This technique is not as complicated as dolphin jumping, but it is another skill that needs to be mastered on slides and bowls. When going down the board, you only need to fix the tail of the skateboard with your back foot on the slope or the top edge of the arc, and step on the front foot to make a "downboard" action, and the whole person slides down along the skateboard. It may seem terrifying at first, but this technique will help you build the confidence to move on to more difficult skills as you progress.

3. Rear wheel sliding / tilting wheel

Skipping the lone wheel, also known as sliding with the rear wheel, is like pulling the front wheel and driving the rear wheel when riding a bicycle. When practicing rear wheel skating, raise the nose of the board so that you are only using the rear two wheels when skating. Of course, when you first try, you don't need to "keep" for too long, but being able to slide a few meters in the back wheel is quite helpful for your balance skills. Try back-skating around the entire skatepark to build your balance base, and even incorporate some jump-type moves like hippie jumps.

4. The Kick Turn
This trick can make you more effective when doing sideboard steering, especially when you are coasting at a faster speed. To master the skills and secrets of turning with a board, first place the rear foot in the tail position of the board, and the body weight is also inclined to the rear foot. The front foot is placed on the board at the front wheel frame position. When you shift the center of gravity slightly to the rear foot, the head of the board should also rise. At this point, when the nose of the board is several tens of centimeters off the ground, you can steer left or right with the forefoot. If you want to learn this skill, you must first decompose the principle of this action one by one, it will be more helpful!

5. The Tic-Tac
The kicking technique is a continuous action consisting of several back and forth turns with a board. The small angle turns left and right back and forth form a forward momentum so that you can continue to move forward. A kick with a smaller cut angle can increase the power of the skateboard forward, and also allow you to ride faster. This is a cool skating trick, especially when you're cutting lines on the skatepark, and it's probably one of the best techniques for improving your balance and control.

6. Ollie

Once you've mastered the basic skills above, you can start experimenting with some more challenging moves. Many skateboarders consider the basic dolphin jump to be one of the most important introductory skills, since the other moves require a basic dolphin jump. The dolphin jump action is when you jump up, the skateboard is also pulled into the air with your feet. This continuous action starts with the body squatting slightly and the person jumping up while stepping on the tail of the board. When jumping, the skateboard will also be brought up by the action of stepping on the tail of the board. At this time, the scraper surface on the side of the forefoot will push the body of the board. It appears horizontal when taken into the air. Continue to practice this action, your dolphin jump will be able to successfully land.

7. 180-degree turn dolphin jump (180 Ollie)

Steering dolphin jumping is based on the basics of dolphin jumping, so before learning this trick, practice steady dolphin jumping first. Steering dolphin jumps can be practiced while traveling. When you jump up from the dolphin jumping position, turn the direction that the dolphin jump should have landed straight on to your opposite foot, either forward or backward. . Once you learn this trick, you'll be able to unlock more scary tricks.

8. The Boardslide

Once you've become proficient with dolphin jumps and board turns, it's time to learn to grind. Well, you'll need a pole or platform to practice this trick. When doing the body grinding move, turn the board ninety degrees and jump to the pole with the dolphin jumping action, so that the board can be placed on the pole in the middle position between the wheel frames, and then slide forward along the pole to the end. Then return to the ground. Using skateboard wax can also help with sliding (and protect your deck).

9. Rock to Fakie

When you're ready to show off your skills on a U-Board or Incline Board, backslide is a great move. To become proficient with this move, you must swing at a certain speed to the top edge of the bowl or U-board, and once you have reached the top edge, let your front wheel carrier go over the top edge so you have a balance on the top edge Actions. Then, slide down with the trend, but it will slide down the solitary face in a backward-slip state.
Once you've mastered these nine easy-to-follow skateboard tricks, you'll be able to challenge tougher tricks like heel flips or fakie beta flips. The more you practice, the better your board skills will naturally become. Just remember to warm up and stretch before you hit the court so you don't get strained or injured.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
