For a Frontside Smith Grind you grind on your back truck while you push down the front truck sideways and downwards next to the ledge or rail. Although, Frontside Smith Grinds can be done on nearly every spot, this trick was invented by a vert skateboarder.
To be more precise, Mike Smith, passionated bowl rider, invented it. In the beginning, it was more a Smith Stall that evolved into a Grind over time. However, this trick has a good amount of style and is worth the hazzle it takes to learn it correctly.
