Drop In

Drop In means to enter a quarter from the top coping. This is the most important thing to learn if you want to ride transitions. Therefore, it’s the foundation of every other trick you can do in a mini ramp or a quarter.

Nevertheless, it takes some guts at first to head into a transition and lean forward with your board. But the fear will go away fast and after a few tries you won’t even think about it as a trick. Once you feel comfortable doing Drop Ins on a quarter pipe try to drop in on something a bit higher and see how high you can go.

1. To drop into a quarter pipe, place your tail on the coping and put your back foot on it.

2. Now stand with all your weight on the tail while your front foot is positioned on the bolts of your front truck with no weight on it.

3. While dropping in, it is very important to shift your weight on the front truck and to lean your body forward.

At the beginning, this may take some effort because it can feel a bit scary but this is the only way to avoid falling backwards.

4. While rolling out keep your body centered and don’t lean too much forward to avoid falling over your nose.

5. Once you have rolled away from the Drop In you should repeat it several times and the fear will go away.
