Trick Tip
5-0

5-0 Grind is the term for grinding on a ledge using only your back truck.

You can do 5-0’s either Frontside or Backside depending whether the obstacle is in front of you or behind you. Frontside 5-0’s are a bit easier to learn because you have the obstacle in front of you.

1. No matter which 5-0 you want to do, try to approach the ledge almost parallel while you put your feet in an Ollie position and Ollie up onto the ledge.

2. Then try to aim the edge of the ledge with your back truck and shift your weight onto your tail.

3. Try to land smoothly on the ledge to avoid putting on too much weight and sticking.

4. Even though you have to put all your body weight on the tail, try not to lean back too much otherwise you might slip out.

5. At the end of the ledge you can leave the grind very easily because your weight is already shifted on your back truck.

The feeling of the 5-0 position is similar to an Ollie to Manual.
