    -One footers over 1/4. I can complete them but I need to get it down smoother because its only looks good 1 in 5 tries.

    -180 air. I can complete the 180 but I suck at rolling out of fakie, working it on a wedge/box.

    I am having issues with doing fufanus(spelling???) on qp's. The wierd thing is that I can do them on Bank to sub box's, and on tables(when I put a kicker going up to it, of course). But for some reason I can't get em on qp's.

    Also I am trying to be more consistant with my manual to 180's. I can maybe get 1 out of 5, if I only try them on flat ground. But I can't do them off ledges, or if i'm not going the exact right speed.

    for the last two weeks, i've been practicing farside 50-50s. i usually get on and whip out too much and fall.
    I've been grinding up a few small rails. I was trying x-up crooked grinds on this tiny flatbar at the banks.I fell about ten times yesterday trying to 180 on a rail, and 180 off it.


    bmichaelx, look for a curved ledge to do the manual 180 on, the turning will help your spin.

    Can't say I've heard of a farside grind before. Care to explain?

    its when you go up to the rail on the opposite side of where your grinding and you hop completly over the rail to land on your grind side

    When I try them on the ground I manual and start to turn then, when I go for the 180 i'll get full rotation most of the time, but I won't be able ro roll out of it. I know roll backs well enough to do it, but I land so sloppy I don't have enogh speed to do the roll back, but when I try and go faster I mess up on hopping out of the manual for the 180. I KNOW, i'll manual towards a bank and 180 down it so it'll keep my speed up for the roll back.

    You're not taking your apology too seriously.
