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”.

    funny about the slappy noseslides. I have always sucked at ollieng into noseslides (and crooked grinds), so instead I nollie into them or do them switch to make it easier.

    the slappy nosegrind is just the awkward stepbrother of the slappy crooks.
