Foundation How to shifty flip in front of fans starring...

Image Description Here Abdias Rivera! This was shot at last years Pheonix Am and he was doing these in his runs every try. Image Description Here Heres the part that you really don't want to mess up. Picture the crowd in their underwear and imagine the fire hydrant being a small pebble. Pop your board. Image Description Here Stay focused and keep the board under you. But remember to flick the shit out of it. And pretend you're doing a frontside flip but like only a baby frontside flip because you only need to rotate it 90 degrees since its a shifty. Image Description Here Think light as a feather and rotate those hips. Image Description Here Once you get this high try not to just fall straight down onto the fire hydrant on your baby maker. Image Description Here Prepare to land and not fall. Also slowly start rotating it back to straight. Image Description Here Don't land 90 or else its just gonna be like a stupid flip or something. I don't even know what to call that. Image Description Here Land straight as a arrow and roll away screaming Yes Yes Yes. Then throw your hands up and start the YMCA celebration dance and hope the crowd follows...

Foundation how to tail drop starring Gareth Stehr

Image Description Here I found this sequence of Gareth that hadn't been used for anything so I figured what better way than to post a instructional trick tip. These are my words not his. I'm just using him as my stunt dummy. Step 1: Climb onto the highest possible structure you can. Hopefully it's high enough where you can't even see the bottom where you're supposed to land. Image Description Here Step 2: Get in tail drop posistion or dump truck or nosepick or handstand or criss cross applesauce or whatever you feel comfortable jumping from onto a skateboard. Image Description Here Step 3: This is actually part of step 2 but it's so important that I'm highlighting it and including it in it's own step. Point to your friend at the bottom and say "this is for chicks" or "get money" or "pirate life" or "gangster life" or whatever you feel comfortable getting into at that moment in time. Image Description Here Step 4: Go for it. Image Description Here Step 5: Don't think about falling. Think about landing. Think happy thoughts... Image Description Here Step 6: Be very thankful that you didn't completely mess this up! Suck up the impact and party down onto safe grounds to celebrate. Image Description Here Step 7: Make sure all your friends filmed it. Go straight home and edit it to a sweet song and send it in for sponsorship opportunities.
