    Uhhh is this considered a trick?

    I don't really flatland or street so I don't know much of anything about those tricks, instead I ride dirt and race. My lil bro asked me the other day if what he was doing on his homemade rail was really a trick or something studpid and i couldnt really tell him if it was a bigginers trick or just a goof off trick. He rides up next to his 14 in tall rail and endos while still going forward and lands his back peg only on the rail with his front tire still on the ground. Actually his front tire never leaves the ground. Is this a trick and if so what would u call it?

    Hmm its kind of a spoof of a Smith Grind, except in the real trick the rail would be higher up on a ledge or something and you would have to hop to get up onto it, then do exactly what you are doing on the ground, but on the ledge or whatever is next to the rail.

    you don't have to see something in a magazine or in a video for it to be a trick.

    anything can be a trick.
    if your not riding in a strait line your probably doing a trick.

    it may not be hard, cool or very interesting to others but it's a trick none the less.

    I have been doing that specific stunt for years. why?
    it's fun and goofy and makes me smile.

    that's the whole point to riding, isn't it?
