For the majority of us mere mortals, tricks like the double backside rodeo, backside 900 off the heels and the cab 1440 are in a completely different realm of skill to the one that we’re in. Not that we’re hating, we imagine sending a double backside rodeo over a Nike swoosh the size of a small African country à la Peetu Piiroinen would be scary as fuck, but mega fun; but quite frankly, we value our lives and know our limits.
There’s the old saying that the best rider on the mountain is the one having the most fun. Whilst we agree with that statement to a certain extent, there’s nothing quite like the feeling that you’re gonna have to go buy yourself a new set of pants before trying a new trick. It’s the feeling we all dread, but love with the same zest; it’s why we ride.
That said, we understand that not everyone wants to be touching cloth 24/7, so in that vein, we’ve had a good ol’ brainstorm here at Onboard HQ to come up with what we would consider to be 12 simple, but super fun tricks to do in the park no matter your ability level.
