Boneless - An indy grab front foot plant. This trick can be done on flat land, off a launch or on a quarterpipe.
You can learn this trick even before you learn to ollie. It is a good way to get the board up and into the air and jump on it.
This trick looks kind of like a slow motion ollie where you grab the deck and step off. That is essentially what you are doing. You grab your board and take off your foot and plant it. Then jump with your body and board off the ground with one foot.
Here is how to do a boneless:
Don’t worry too much if you can’t get the board off the ground very high or if you are not able to jump with the planted foot. This will come with timing and practice. After a while you will be able to quickly pop this trick and add things link a frontside 180, 360 or finger flips.
Try crouching and grabbing the board then letting go and standing up again. This will be tough until you develop the strength to do it. Try stepping off with the front foot and placing it back on again. This will be a weird off balance feeling. Try and get used to getting down and shifting your weight from your feet to your hands and back and forth.
When you really get this trick you can do it on a curb or at the top of a ramp on the coping. This will take real timing and commitment. To pull your foot off and place it in a certain spot is a real skill and will definitely get you cheers from ther skaters when you pull it well.
