We’re going to talk about another street skating
technique which is how to do a hands free power slide on the bank. Doing the slides
an easy way to turn around and get yourself setup to roll back down on the bank. This
maneuver while it’s not that advanced of a trick, it’s still a maneuver that is important
to learn in order to navigate skate park successful. You are going to roll up to the bank with
your body already beginning to twist around in a 180 degrees. Feel the tension in your
hips and on the bottom of your legs. Then you want to use your back foot to scoop the
back wheels to slide across the concrete while the front one is also pivot. Your weight will
then carry you back down the ramp, let’s see it in action. Notice that my body was already
twisted before approaching the ramp this gives the tension of your legs setup. When you get
to the top of the ramp, you can easily shift your back foot, squeak your wheels and roll
away smooth, let’s see it again.
Remember the key to this trick is sliding your back wheels not sliding in front. Approach
twist back wheel slide and roll away.
