Skimboard Trick - Flat 1

Postby Lonny » Wed Aug 27, 2008 12:12 am

Here is a trick that I jokingly call the Flat1. Essentially it is an ollie to blind with a 180 handlepass at the same time. Lastly, I add a transition in the end. Enjoy.

Here it is in Slow Motion:

Huh so you hold the bar upside down for an instant then give it a half spin back. Is that so you can grab the bar overhand?

Hey Brass,

Welcome to Lose the Straps!

It might have helped if the sequence had started a bit ealier so you can see how the trick starts, but as you are riding you unhook and initiate an ollie to land to blind. Once you land the ollie to blind you finish the 180 by doing a surface handle pass. I added a transition to the trick by continuing to gybe the board with a kiteloop and go out of the trick going the other direction riding toe-side.

It might help to understand or visualize the trick if you watch the skimboarding video. Check out the trick at time 2:07 and 3:43 it is the same trick except I dont unhook first and ollie to blind. However, everything else is pretty much the same you can see it with the kite in full motion.
