Hey, if you already mastered Ollie and are ready to learn another trick, try FS 50-50. FS 50-50 or 50-50 grind is one of the most basic tricks for skateboard riders. It is when both trucks are on the rail. FS 50-50 can be easily done on the backside or frontside, can be performed on a large surface by beginners or on a long rail by an expert rider. Advise when starting to learn FS 50-50 is choosing a ledge that is not too high. And remember to make sure that you are perfect on Ollie’s move.
Now, take your skateboard and start!

02 – Try to ride the board parallel to the obstacle when approaching. Imagine that you are poping an Ollie and then landing on the grinding edge with both your trucks at the same time.
03 – Now start the Ollie move, focusing on the obstacle to a level above it in the air.
04 – Ride your board when ollieing with your front foot. Be ready for the impact between trucks and the surface.
