How to Crooked Grind on a Ledge

LA's favorite skate coach Coyote Rob shows us how in today's online skateboard class!

Approach your obstacle at a parallel angle with a good amount of speed.


Crouch and compress, ready to pop your ollie. Spot your entry point for the crooked grind as you approach.


As you get close to the obstacle, get ready to pop and ollie high enough to get over the grinding edge.


Pop your tail and use your shoulders to guide your front truck towards the grinding edge.


Control your ollie with your front foot and get ready to transfer all your weight to the nose when you land.


Land with all your weight on your front foot and lock your truck and wheel against the grinding edge. Lift your back foot up and hold the pose.


Hold yourself in position and control the grind with your back foot.


Keep grinding for as long as you can and spot your landing.


As you come to the end of your grind, prepare to nollie out and clear the end of the ledge.


Perform the motion of a nollie out of the crooked grind and control your descent with your feet.

Try to stay level.


Land with all four wheels down at once and bend your knees to absorb the impact.


Roll away at speed.
