Skateboarding trick

Redirected from Skateboarding tricks

A skateboarding trick is a maneuver performed while skateboarding (or other boardsports such as snowboarding and wakeboarding). The basic elements of the skateboarding trick are the varial, jump, flip, grab, slide (or grind), and stall, combined with twists of various multiples of 180 degrees. Tricks which require some kind of ramp, usually a halfpipe[?], are vert tricks; the rest can be performed on the flat or off of curbs and rails and are known as street tricks.

Competitive skateboarding and snowboarding is primarily judged on the difficulty and success of such tricks.

The body varial, is jumping into the air and rotating 180 degrees to land on the board facing the other direction.
