Fakie Ollie Grab – Hard Tricks Heating Up
Note: First learn small fakie ollies on the tranny. Then learn fakie ollie grabs and gradually work your way up bigger and bigger until you can reach the coping.
When you’re doing fakie ollies near the coping, one way to do it (which is actually the way I do it) is to smack your back wheels off the coping and get your pop that way.
Your tail won’t even have to hit if you do it this way and if you throw your weight up and not back, you will float back down into the transition and not onto the platform of the ramp and it works out just fine.
1) Ride fakie to the coping
2) Smack the back wheels on that fine piece of steel pipe
3) Be sure to keep your momentum going up, not backwards
4) Suck your legs up
5) Grab your board
6) Let go
7) Float down
8) Ride away and give any onlookers a big thumbs up.

2) You approach the ramp with your front foot in your favorite heelflip position (whatever the heck that may be).
3) Once you get near the coping… you gotta smack the tail hard. I think the pop is one of the most important things in this trick. the more pop…. the closer it comes to your hand, thus being easier to grab. so give it a good smack.
4) Kick your front foot out like a regular heelflip. if the pop was good, that sucker should float up between your legs and near your hand.
5) Grab that bad boy and stick it under your feet, which ain’t as bad as it seems, believe me… you just have to go for it.
6) Once you’ve rolled away, be sure that trendy silver chain is showing and strut your stuff back to the top of the ramp and grab any props from the fellahs cause now you is proppa, dogg.

3) As you do this be sure to keep your body low and over the transition of the ramp as opposed to being up on top of the board (this causes you to straighten out your front leg). Right as you get up there begin to rotate your upper body like a backside kickturn to start the momentum to get back in.

5) All your weight will be on the back wheels as you perform the kickturn.
