How to Perform "nose and Tail Rolls" Trick

A Nose and Tail Roll is done by using either your board’s nose or tail to spin 180 degrees and thus changing your stance. Doing this trick is one way of switching from riding fakie to regular and vice versa. It is similar to a Wheelie, though you add a 180-degree turn. Hence, you need to know how to do a Wheelie first and be comfortable doing it. In this section, learn how to perform Nose and Tail Rolls:

STEP 1: On a gentle slope, ride straight downhill on moderate speed. Since a Nose and Tail Roll involves doing a Wheelie, you will elevate the tail of the board first before turning 180 degrees.

STEP 2: Crouch slightly and shift your weight on your front foot. Lift the tail of your board. Once it gets airborne, make a 180-degree turn using the nose of the board as your pivot point.

STEP 3: Take note that the tail of your board is elevated while turning. Maintain your balance until you finish the 180-degree turn.

STEP 4: After the turn, notice that you have successfully switched your stance. Keep practicing until you become accustomed in doing this trick.

In doing a Nose or Tail Roll, it is essential to maintain your balance and have perfect timing. Do not elevate your board too much to avoid falling over. Make sure to practice doing this trick until you get comfortable with it.
