1. Yo Flips
What started as an original style to do a 360 flip just exploded into the worst looking thing ever. The front foot catch isn’t even the problem here, it’s how that backfoot sprawls out, so you look like you are doing some magically gay karate kick. The worst types of people do this too. The dudes who are all worried about “steez” that go buy an overpriced Supreme hat and have 10 pairs of limited edition Supras at home.

2. Kickflip Sexchange
Anyone doing this trick over the age of 10 should just quit skating. It’s really that simple.

3. Nightmare flips
True story: Went to a crusty skatepark and had to deal with one of those kids who starts doing all these Youtube style tricks with horrible names, shit like: disco flips, dolphin flips…etc. As soon as he got to “nightmare flip” which is apparently a double varial flip, I just kept thinking, “WHY GOD WHY?!?” Kid should have been a rollerblader.

4. Slappy Nose Slides
You know the dudes that can’t really do a noseslide at all, so they put their front foot up all the way to the tip of the nose and tick tack onto the ledge? Yeah – I hope they die.

5. Willy Grinds
This “trick” shouldn’t have any other name except “I wish I could 50-50”.

    The real cancer of skateboarding is you. Your trashing on people because they don’t like doing the same tricks as you? According to your logic a nightmare flip Willy grind wouldn’t be sick and. Please take the time to buy a rope and hang yourself you judgemental fuck.

    Telling people what tricks to not do is dumb, only kooks do that, just makes the writer look like some lame ass steeze queen. The illustration of some frustrated nerd behind a computer, is probably what the author looks like, some jerk off who couldn’t hope to do half of the tricks he talks ish about. Reminds me of this kid, who is horrible at skating, saw me do a pop shuv 50-50 180 out and said: “why would you do such a dumb trick” my response was, “you suck, you stand around holding your skateboard and judging people who are just having fun, what does it matter what you think” I can just imagine everyone having fun at a skatepark as this crusty ass James Lee, sits in some corner, just hating life with his punk ass. Sorry bro, you’re a kook.

    What’s wrong with someone doing whatever they want on a skateboard? i thought skateboarding started out as a way to express yourself freely and to not be bound to the rules like other sports such as football etc. If someone isn’t hurting anyone then shouldn’t that be fine? I don’t know. I just think there’s too much negativity in the world and that includes the skateboarding world now. We’re a community. We should treat each other with dignity and respect.
