see that's the shit I hate about skating, people are never willing to embrace different shit. Yeah, he wasn't backside flipping stair sets or doing flip trick-grind-180 out on ledges and shit, but that shit was still official. There's no rulebook for skating man, he does it how he does it and I guarantee that nobody in skateboarding could recreate that part

edit: and this is coming from a dude who used to think Mike V's style was lame as fuck, but as RUBYRHOD was saying, dude's committed to the evolution of his style and it definitely shows

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

Jul 27, 2009 @ 16:36
hey are varial kickflips and tre flips just the same thing ? they look so similiar to me
Jul 27, 2009 @ 16:40
Nah a tre flip is a 360 kickflip and a varial flip is a 180 kickflip.

theres newer styles of skating that can still be different and good mike valley has just already put out alls he's got now hes just a skater who skates cuz he likes it and goes around the world with his fuel tv show and skating with kids who are new to it or just like it.

Dude is sick. I read about him in some article...I forgot what mag though.
Jul 27, 2009 @ 23:56
word. richie jackson is that dude, but ZA i can see what you are saying, but i don't think the amount of tricks he did was enough for a battle commander, half of the shit he did was kinda lame too, compare it to a bangin part, then too all the other battle commanders, it doesn't look right

anybody got any tips on no complys? i fuck up and do a shove it no comply everytime
Jul 28, 2009 @ 01:29
^ yeah the thing about no comply's are..dont do them. haha jp nah its somthing i cant do either but not my style of trick
Jul 28, 2009 @ 01:37
^Its "just" an ollie with one foot right? If that makes since. I never thought about no complys until like a week ago, I have no urges to try em yet though.
Jul 28, 2009 @ 16:13
there pretty easy actually i ended up messing around with them earlier you just need to take ur front foot off and pop your tail with ur back and make sure you jump while ur doing it
Jul 28, 2009 @ 19:55
^Word word, in my mind, keep thinking it wasn't as complicated as some ppl make it seem, but again, I still have yet to really try it.
Jul 28, 2009 @ 20:52
that mike vallely shit was ill. dude was on some steroid shit
Jul 30, 2009 @ 00:52
well the reason i wanna learn em is cuz i just started like a month ago lmfao. so anything that doesnt seem out of my range is something im willing to try. i can shove it, fakie shove it, 180 and thats about it. any suggestions? fanks
Jul 30, 2009 @ 01:49
^In a month, sheez your doing pretty good. Start actually popping with them shuvs though. Practice Ollie ollie ollie. Then kickflips, heels, etc.

damn, I've been skating for like 6 months and all I can do is ollie regular and fakie. But my ollies is beastly though so it's cool lol

Jul 30, 2009 @ 17:47
word start practicing and getting your pop higher and be extremely comfotable with your ollie, you can also try nollie shuv's

Jul 30, 2009 @ 23:26
i heard getting higher ollies has alot to do with how high you jump when you ollie? true?
Jul 31, 2009 @ 19:01
anyone wanna help out? whenever i do kickflips, my foot is pointed on a 45 degree angle just right under the bottom left screw. when i pop and flick, board seems to allude me and i can never get my back foot on the board. anyone have any advice?

yeah that's the plan. I can pretty consistently ollie off curbs and over bottles and lines and shit like that so I figure, whenever I do start working on flip tricks full time, I'll learn it way faster since my ollie will be so stable

^May as well start that shit now lol.

Pretty much. How how you jump, how comfortable you are, confidence, and technique/skill.
