*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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 do I do the J-Turn?

Hi guys,
I'm stumped. I've been struggling with J-Turn for many months. I've been all over YouTube for it. I can do it, kinda but not when using the Crazy as an entry point. Is there any prerequisite you could recommend. Would one cone Fan Volt be one, please?

nay, i don't really recommend the fan volte as a prerequisite trick. i'd say to execute a good fan volte is much more difficult than a good j-turn, because of the momentum required if you want to spin more than once

for j-turn there really isn't any prerequisite trick. the advice i can offer you is to get comfortable with the position of the trick. keep yourself relatively straight without hunching over, and think of turning your shoulders.

next, the easiest, least appealing entry would be to roll forward with your legs crossed in the jturn position, turn into a circle and make the circle tight into a jturn. if you can do that already, alternatively you can try an easier entry such as the Sun -> jturn

Thumbs up

Yeah using my shoulders is making it easier now. Still do not as complete as I want but yeah it's better now when I use the shoulders.

I didn't know you could use the Sun entry for it. I'll have to look for that in a competition vid, I'd like to see that one day. Thanks.
