Learning to Fish and Chip Jan 6, 2010

learning to fish and chip from ryan wooley on Vimeo.

Trick Track is a valuable resource for people who may not have a lot of local riders to practice with. For instance, this trick first popped up in SoCal about a year ago, but was in the “one-footed” phase. Now, people have started to do them “two-footed”. Questions arose and kids wanted to know how to do these…

To answer their questions, Ryan Wooley posted a video in the “360 forward slider thingy” thread showing people how it’s done. Really valuable resource. If web-edits were around back when street skateboarding and bmx first started, I wonder how that would have affected the sports?

Think about the first freestyle skaters to do a moving ollie and how that affected street skating for decades to come.

    that analogy is spot on. witnessing the growing pains of FGFS reminds me very much of skating in the late 80’s/early 90’s: new tricks done clumsily at first, becoming more refined w/time. the fading of skid variations mirrors skating’s phasing out of showboat/pose tricks (flatground handplants, jumpramp early grabs). it’s an exciting time. as with skating then, i’m really looking forward to where this will go.

    The first sort of variant of this that I remember seeing was in the footy we got from Mpls for Bootleg Sessions v.3. Watch the trailer at about the 0:49 mark…

    He just spins it once and doesn’t pedal through it to keep it going though. That clip was filmed in November or December of ’08…
