Bobby Puleo: Backside Flip
______________________________________________________________________

I have been skateboarding for 5 years and I love it.  It has got to be one of the most difficult
sport on earth, but also one of the most rewarding.  Nothing else feels like stomping a fat trick on a skateboard, nothing!  But to be good at skating, I mean real good, you have to live, eat, and sleep skateboarding.  Most people do not have the willpower or drive to do this, and take the constant harassment of the cops.  I live in San Luis Obispo, and cops always harass me for skating.  We
have a park but it is barely ever open, and it is illegal to skate on public property.  Skating
is definitely a fringe sport because barely anyone can appreciate it.  For those who can, I give
you my video page!!!!!  Be prepared to be amazed!

"How To"
I know that a lot of people reading this have these tricks dialed, but some might need some help.  These tricks come along with audio voice overs of the skaters explaining the tricks, but they mostly explain the obvious.  Oh, well!


Ollie The first trick you need to learn!
Kickflip A basic trick that all skaters need to know.
360 Flip Arguably the tightest looking flip trick.
Backside flip A stylish trick that is not too hard.
Frontside flip More difficult than a backside flip.
Tony Hawk Line Now that you have some basics, try this line.

it up!  For you impatient fools I have preview clips below!
