Trick tip: Learn how do Ollies and Frontside 180 Ollies to make this trick easier. Also practise Frontside Turns on a quarter pipe.

Step 1: As you come up to the quarter pipe, have your back foot on the end of the kick and front foot placed to be prepared for an Ollie.

Step 2: As you make your way to the top of ramp, twist your shoulders as if you were doing a Frontside 180 and Ollie simultaneously.

Step 3: Once you take off, you want to look where you are going to land and make sure your board is nicely under your feet.

Step 4: Prepare for the landing and attempt to have your feet land over the bolts of your board.

If anyone lands this trick, uploads the video and hashtags #esperancetide, we’ll give you $25!
