Manual in Skateboarding

Edited by Spencer Fitzgerald, Crystal, Eng

Hi, welcome to VisiHow. I'm Spencer Fitzgerald and I will be teaching you how to manual. A manual is when you balance on your back trucks and your front trucks do not touch the ground.

Steps

  1. 1
    When doing a manual, use your arms to even out your weight

  2. 2
    Use your back foot and push down onto the tail so your front trucks do not touch the ground
    .
    It's fairly easy to get the hang of. Practice on flat ground between parking lot spaces.

  3. 3
    Once you get the hang of that, throw in an ollie and do it
    .
    Once you ollie, lean back on the tail so only the back trucks will land onto the ground.
