Trick Tip
Axle Stall & BS 50-50

Axle Stall means that you lock in with both of your trucks on the coping of a quarter pipe without grinding and leave the quarter pipe in your normal riding position.

If you want to do a BS 50-50 in a quarter just speed up a bit so your trucks slide along the coping. Before working on both tricks you should practice Backside Kick Turns to get a feeling for the movement.

1. When you approach the quarter pipe, put your back foot in the middle of your tail slightly closer to the bolts of your back truck, while your front foot should be placed between the middle of your board and the bolts of your front truck.

2. As your front truck goes above the coping and your back truck is almost at the coping, press down on your tail slightly and turn your hips 90 degrees to lock into the Axle Stall.

3. Now both trucks should be on top of the coping. To have a good balance, you should lean your weight back to really stand on top of the quarter pipe and have your legs slightly bent.

4. To come out of the Axle stall, press down on your tail slightly, turn your hips forward towards the bottom of the ramp, lean forward and leave the coping forward.

5. When you have Axle Stalls on lock, it might be time to step it up a bit.
 For a Backside 50-50 Grind you should approach the quarter with a little bit more speed and in a slight angle.

Locking into the 50-50 is similar to the Axle Stall but instead of just standing still on the coping you now begin to grind because to the angle. Leaving the 50-50 Grind is the same as the Axle Stall.
