Mini Ramp Skaters

Discussion started by Domenica D'Ottavio 2 years ago

Hey all, Mini Ramp is primarily what I do, I've been learning street but I really like tricks in the mini. I want to learn more tricks, and was wondering if anyone in this group would post some photos or videos of them skating the mini ramp, or be willing to explain some maneuvers for me.

Im in the same boat here! I'd chat with you! I started skating by just figuring out how to stand on a skateboard. Of course, I look back now and I see how I was set up on a board that was way too small for me, so it was very difficult to learn. It took me about 3 months to teach myself how to backside kick turn, about 3 weeks to learn how to pump, and I only practiced on a 5 ft tall halfpipe. I practiced about once or twice a month for a year until I moved to somewhere that had a skatepark.

Just last summer I built a miniramp in my backyard. It's been tough trying to figure out how to skate, all on my own. I finally figured out how to kickturn Frontside last november! And I have 3 different variations of how to FS kickturn, sheech!

I taught myself rock to fakie and fakie rock recently, and I'm working on my rock and roll. I'm still working on getting an axle stall, but my slashes (5-0s as the youngins call them) are solid FS and BS when I kickturn, so I guess a stall should be coming up shortly if I can just punch up my pump up the transition!

Domenica, what's your story on miniramp skating, and how long have you been skating?

It'd be cool to get the groups to interact and stuff.
