Manual trick tip

The manual or wheely is a balance trick where you ride on your back wheels for as long as possible.

Manuals are often used in combo's, but a long manual can turn some heads on its own.


(Video by bearskater)

  1. 1

    Start pushing to get lots of speed. The faster you go, the longer your manual will be.

    Your front foot should be near the front bolts at a 30 degree angle. Put your back foot on the tip of the tail.



  2. 2

    Slightly bend your front leg to lift the nose. Don't stamp the tail down, take it easy.



  3. 3

    Balance on your back wheels for as long as possible without letting the front wheels or your tail touch the ground.

    Bend or stretch your leg slightly to adjust.

    Your arms can help you keep balance, but swinging them wildly might look a little weird.



  4. 4

    Get back on four wheels while you're still riding.


Tips

  • tip

    Try going downhill for a monstrous manual.

  • tip

    You don't have to lean back, your center of gravity will automatically center over your back wheels when you bend your front leg.

I'd love to be able to do this... But My Board has excessively fast wheels and bearings so whenever I lean back the board flies off somewhere.:( :( :(

you shouldn't be leaning back. bend your legs, and bend the front one more to raise the front truck off the ground. keep your body pretty straight up.
