SkateBoard Trick Science

The Science behind Skateboard Tricks

How tricks are Possible

Doing tricks is a mixture of gravity,friction and centripetal force. This is a picture of Nyjah Huston Doing a 360 flip down a huge stair set. Gravity= A force that pulls objects toward the earth. Friction=the resistance that one surface or object encounters when moving over another. Centripetal force=the force that acts on a body moving in a circular path and is directed toward the center around which the body is moving.

Skating in the Mind

Skating is alot about a build up in the mind of confidence to land a trick.That is why if you have a bad fall on a rail or stair set it might take you a while to build up your confidence and do it again.

The Source to Tricks

The Source to all tricks is an Ollie.Without an Ollie you couldnt do alot of tricks.It is the source because you need to learn how to even out the board.Without evening out the board you couldnt get a good kickflip,Heelflip,Treyflip,Varial or many other tricks.
