Ohhh had to reread the mission, I thought you meant do a trick like someone who inspired you but now I see you meant do a trick that you learnt because of someone. You don’t have to do it like them, which is great because I can’t do any tricks like any of my favourites
One of my favourite tricks. I know @sk8arrog8 thinks these are illegal but they feel reaaaaally good. Saw Carroll do it in Goldfish, learnt it straight away, then Puleo did a nice one at Pier 7 in the FTC video (can’t find it on YouTube) which made me want to do them even more. Quim Cardona started doing it mid ledge which was inspiring but it took me longer to learn it like that. Anthony Correa did a dope one mid ledge in 411 15 too but I can’t find that one on YouTube either.
I really like how basic yet original this trick is, there’s something Gonzesque about the 180 out the hard way. Or maybe I thought that because I couldn’t emulate Gonz’s 180 in the hard way variations from Video Days, hahaha.
Hahaha I don’t think their are 100% illegal. I like them on rails or bigger obstacles but I’m just not a fan of them at the end of lines. They look like a bit of a cop out in that scenario! If they are don’t at the start of a line with speed, maybe like how Vincent Alvarez would do it, then I’m backing it!
I don’t think there is anything wrong with 180’s out of 50/50’s at all. Frontside pop shove its out of frontside 50/50 however…
Can’t remember seeing a Frontside shove it out of a backside 50/50 (mid ledge I guess)
Here’s another one, it’s old but better than nothing I suppose.
Saw Cromer do that trick, thought it was weird but probably fun to do, forgot about it. One evening months later having post skate beers at Stockwell I saw a French kid learn it on a parking block there. He made it look cool and I learnt it a few days later at home. Never seen anyone do that one apart from Cromer, that kid at Stocky and then Simon Jensen in his Welcome to Krooked clip years later. I’m sure people did it in the old H-Street vids.
