Three Old School Tricks for Bonus Style

By November 13, 2012

Follow me on:

I've got three old school tricks for you - these tricks aren't actually all that tough, and add a good extra layer of style to your bag of tricks!

  • No Comply - The No Comply is an old school skateboarding trick, invented by Neil Blender (he was a pro skater in the 80's). No Complys are done usually on flat ground...
  • Slappy Grinds - A Slappy Grind (or "slappie") is any skateboard grind done without an ollie, where the skater rides up onto the ledge or rail directly. Slappy grinds are a great place for skaters to start if they don't already know how to do grinds...
  • Caveman - The Caveman is a pretty easy skate trick to learn, and perfect for beginners. You don't even need to know how to ollie!

If you know of some other good old school tricks to suggest, comment below!
