I just learned this trick the other day and I’m pretty sure it’s NBD. The art of naming new skate tricks has been lost in recent decades, so this is my attempt to rekindle that flame of creativity. Please go to @ridechannel on Facebook (link in my profile) and help me name this trick. Submit your idea there… NOT here. The winning name gets a complete from @birdhouseskateboards. And yes, I realize it could possibly be explained using existing terminology, but that’s no fun. Thanks for the help!
My used board will be auctioned off after our demo in Oslo tomorrow night. It includes a private skate lesson and/or demo for 20 people at a later date. You can bid now via @christiesinc (link in my bio) Proceeds go to @gumball3000 foundation & @tonyhawkfoundation. My favorite part is this official disclaimer: "Skateboard has wear consistent with professional use” (aka many, many bails)
Fun fact: the term "Stale Fish" comes from a lunch I had in Sweden in 1985. I was keeping a cryptic journal during our 5-week stay at Eurocana Skate Camp. Someone read it and asked if "stale fish" referred to the "grab behind the back foot" that I was doing at the time (as was Gonz). It was actually my description of our food that day, but I agreed with him since that grab didn't have a name yet. This sea bass was not stale, for the record. It was delicious. Eat them up, yum.
