Quite frankly, there is a lot of useless information out there. I looked everywhere for a decent guide. It wasn’t a fun search, and neither was the lack of progress I made. Sure I learned how to ollie, but how many great skateboarders do you see just doing ollies all over the place? Not many. I tried a lot of guides – some were ok, some were useless, some were good, but one stood out.
To get you started, we have included some skateboarding videos on this site. Visit our skateboarding tricks page for these videos.
Anyway, after a few months of miserable failure, I luckily happened to stumble on a guide that walked me through everything I’d been trying so hard to learn. After a few days I nailed a kickflip, which injected some much needed motivation which I used to propel me through the rest of the guide. Seriously, I was so over the moon with the insanely fast progress that I was making, I couldn’t stop practicing. It was pure awesome.
It doesn’t matter if you are struggling newbie or an intermediate rider who just can’t seem to nut out that next trick, you’ll get something out of this guide.
Here’s some of the things you will learn. The list is ridiculously long, but I’ll include a few.
- The quickest way to learn the ollie, and then get them insanely high
- How to tackle the kickflip, where most begineers get stuck
- The step that 99% of beginenrs miss in learning heelflips
- How to balance during a nose grind
All the way through to:
- The secret to coordinating the spin and flip for the varial flip
- How to unlock the difficult hardflip
- How to avoid falling out of the Smith Grind
Sound good? It should. If you’re done reading, head over to the guide now.
[Update: I removed all other product recommendations from this site because the feedback from this one has been light years beyond the rest.]
I was already sold. But on top of this, the author sometimes adds a bunch of extra goodies to the guide as a bit of a thank you. Check out this site to see if the bonuses are currently being offered.
The first bonus is the “Ultimate Skateboard Buying Guide”. This one will teach you all about the best decks, trucks, wheels, grip tape, hardware and other accessories. It’ll also teach you about the worst ones, making sure you don’t get ripped off by some guy at the skate shop. You’ll learn what kind of boards and gear is best for your style of skating.
The second bonus is called “How to Shoot a Killer Skate Video”. Wheter you just want to shoot some videos with your friends to show off or post on the internet, or for more professional style shots you can use for sponsorship bids, this guide has it covered. You’ll learn exactly what you need to do to make a ripper of a video.
Thirdly, and my favourite, is the “Professional Ramp Plans” book. This one is easily the most valuable of the lot, and the rarest. Click here to see if it is up for grabs at the moment. Once you’ve learned a ton of tricks, you’re going to want to take them to the next level. What better way then to build your own set of ramps and rails. In this book, you’ll find guidelines, hints, techniques and blueprints for all kinds of jumps and rails.
