Proper dweeb question but there it is lol.
In a trick description i’ve always been under the impression that stance remains the same all the way through the trick.
For example you’d never call a fakie flip nose grind a fakie flip switch 5-0.
I see it more and more now that people break this (such as in the Nyjah thread, no disrespect).
Perhaps i’m wrong and its interchangable but i dont ever want to see a Switch Nollie lol.
I think its a generational thing…feel like it sorta appeared a bit in the late 2000s with “Frontisde 180 switch Five O” which was always frontside ollie fakie nosegrind before.
Personally, I’m old school in that I think a trick is only switch if it is popped switch, but sometimes it can be tough to describe without flipping stance.
Like…Frontside 180 Switch K is a Howard Grind. But what do you call the backside version??? Backside Howard? No one does that.
So, that view of mine is updated…say whatever you like. So long as it gets the point across. It doesn’t matter. Frontside Indy the fuck outta everything. Whatever.
I grew up on Transworld magazine and they were very strict about trick names from what I remember. Unfortunately editorial guidelines aren’t a thing on Instagram really, and God knows what people call tricks on TikTok.
But I agree with the above - stance stays the same. Trick names are confusing enough as it is without changing stance halfway through the description
I think I noticed in the Nyjah section something I don’t think I’d seen before, and the only way I’d describe it is sw ollie to fakie fs crooks, revert out. It’s definitely tweaked out like a crook, but would that in proper vernacular be a sw 5-0?
