Grinds and stalls are done on a curb, rail or bench. Verts are done on a ramp. If you are just beginning, try some ground tricks before moving onto the others.

Ground Tricks

BEGINNER

Switching

The whole point of this move is to change the position of your feet. For this move, you want to change the position of your feet. While you are skating, move your back foot forward while at the same time, you are moving your front foot back.

Shuffling

This trick is similar to switching, but you stay in the same place the whole time. You want to move your back foot forward while you move your front foot back.

Skating Backwards

While you are standing stationary, use your forward foot and step back. Step back with your now forward foot and go into a basic skate position. You will push yourself backward. You will be going heeling like normal, only going backwards.

Propulsion Switch

Get some speed before you start this trick. This moves looks like you are quickly switching, one switch after another. While you are skating, move your back foot forward while at the same time, you are moving your front foot back. After one switch you automatically go into the next switch.

Fish tail

Heely like normally, but shift your weight from one side to the other while you are moving your feet to the opposite side. You should be going in a sideways zig zag pattern.

180

Start by skating normally. Angle your feet in the direction you are going to spin in. While you are turning, switch your feet. You will now be Heelying on your front foot and your back foot will be in the front. Skate backwards.

Revert

This is the opposite of a 180. Facing backwards. With your front foot, push off and skate backwards. With your back foot, twist your foot until you have turned around, switch your feet, so your back foot now becomes your front foot and your front foot becomes your back foot.

INTERMEDIATE

Toe Jam

Skate normally, with your back foot, lean forward until you are stopped by the rubber on the toe. This stalls your skating. Move your forward foot backwards. Pivot on your back foot until your front foot is in the opposite direction, and then push off the back foot until you are skating in the opposite direction from the direction you were previously going.

Crabwalk

Heely normally. Rotate your body and front foot like you are doing a turn. Move your front foot to your side until you are facing to the sideways. Your toes should be facing out and your feet will be parallel with your heels facing each other. Your knees should be bent.

Pipeline

This move is very similar to the crabwalk. While you are skating normally, rotate your body and front foot like you are doing a turn. Move your front foot to your side until you are facing sideways. Your toes should be facing outwards and your feet will be parallel with your heels facing each other. Your knees should be straight.

360

Rotate your foot like you are going to turn. Keep turning around, you back foot will follow the front foot, until it becomes the front foot and your feet switch. Keep turning and the back foot will become the front foot again and you will be skating in the direction you came from.

Powerslide

This trick looks similar to a 360, but it has a slide afterwards. Rotate your front foot to the side, then move the front foot to the back so you turn around and your back foot becomes the front. Put your toes down to stop yourself and finish off the slide. A way to put a cool twist on it is by changing the angle of your back foot which can cause you to spin out.

Manual

With this trick you show off your balancing skills. While you are skating, lift one foot off the ground. You will be only skating on one wheel and the other will be in the air.

Sonic Stop

Skate normally. Bring your back foot forward until your feet are parallel. Lean back and use your brake pads on the back of the Heelys to come to a complete stop.

Manual Heel Stop

This is the combination of the manual and the sonic stop. While riding on one wheel only with the other foot raised in the air, lean backwards and use the brake pad to come to a complete stop.

Can Opener

Reverse Manual

First do a 360, but as you come out of it, put each foot down with the toes outward and heels facing each other like a crabwalk or pipeline. This could also be done with a footy 360 first and then the crabwalk or pipeline.
