Rock to Fakie - The front truck is placed over the lip of the ramp and then the board is "rocked" slightly before coming back down fakie.
This is a basic trick that will let you change directions at the top of the ramp. This simple trick has a lot going on. You will be letting your wheels roll over the top of the coping and stalling there. Being careful not to get caught on the coping is the key to this trick. You really need to be able to get your wheels up. Rolling in fakie will also be a challenge.
Too keep from hanging up and smashing yourself you need to get the setup tricks down good.
You can pull this trick by letting the top wheels drag along the ramp and then roll of the coping and back in. This is bad style but if it helps you get the feel for the trick then try it out. Aim for getting those wheels up and out though. It keeps your speed and feel much better.
Practice your fakies, practice rolling up and doing little manuals at the top of the coping. Letting your wheels leave the ramps before you stop rolling. Then slaming them back down when you start rolling back. This will help you get the feel and sight of bringing the wheels back in after the stall.
