A cab or caballerial is a 360 fakie ollie, so a halfcab is a 180 fakie ollie.
If you can do regular 180’s, you won’t have many problems learning halfcabs.
1. Start riding fakie with your toes on the toeside of the tail.
2. Turn your shoulders in the direction opposite to your jump direction.
Crouch down a little and get ready to jump.
3. Pop the board and jump. If you pop on the toeside of the tail, the board will automatically turn 180 degrees.
Swing your arms to help you make the 180 rotation.
4. Use your front foot to guide the board.
5. Land and roll away.
Bigspin is a cool name for a 360 shove-it with a body varial in the same direction. It looks pretty awesome for a medium difficulty trick.
1. Start riding with your front foot on the front bolts and your back foot on the toeside of the tail.
2. Shove the board hard, mainly with your back foot. At the same time, jump in the same direction as the board.
3. Let the board spin 360 degrees and rotate 180 degrees in the same direction yourself.
4. Catch the board in the air just before you complete your rotation and land.
Since Alan “Ollie” Gelfand invented the ollie in 1978, it has been the single most important trick in skateboarding.
Almost every street or vert trick strongly relies on the ollie. Learn this one really well, this will be the foundation to build all the other tricks on. It can take some time to master the ollie, but it will make your life a lot easier.
1. Start with your feet positioned more or less like in the picture below.
2. Crouch down for the jump. Don’t go too deep or you won’t be able to pop & drag the board.
3. Jump up using your back foot. Snap the tail down hard and fast. Raise your front foot and don’t put pressure on the board with it while jumping.
4. Move your front foot towards the nose of the board to level it out. Take it easy, it’s a gentle drag, not a ninja kick.
At the same, raise your back foot.
5. Try to stay level and land with your 4 wheels at the same time. Bend your knees a little to absorb the impact of the jump.
