*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Slalom Cone Skating Forum Discussions about slalom cone skating, high-jump, and other freestyle trick skating. (Note that vert, street, and park skating discussions should be posted in our aggressive skating forum.)

Default How to keep momentum when using sideway-tricks?

Okay, so after viewing a few videos on tricks that require you to move sideways, I still don't quite understand the concept of going side ways. I can see that you're sort of pushing using the foot opposite of the direction you're going, but then that's about it.

After watching a Munobal trick video on the chap chap, and similar tricks that require you to move in a side ways direction, I haven't found out how to use it yet. Not to mention.. how on earth do you do the spread eagle trick that requires you to maneuver with your heels back to back in a straight line? Are there any ways of improving the flexibility of moving your feet more outwards?

Oh yah, what happens when you spread your legs too far, then you perform the splits when you know you aren't flexible enough to do? Has that ever happened to anyone on this forums? If so, do share your stories :0
