Pretty much!

Just ride curbs for like a week straight and just do like manuals and 180's off them. You'll get your fakies and stuff on lock.


Learn turndowns and tables, you can't go wrong with those two.

They said wrong. They are fairly difficult.

I'd like to learn them myself, but i'm pretty sure i should re-learn no footers and no foot cans as a prerequisite.

No way. Backflips are the easiest trick in the book.
