Hey wussup, im yourfriendthepro's homeboy, and i gotta tell u bout this bad ass underground sport: tricking. Aight, so tricking is a blend of martial arts, gymnastics, and break dance. It hasnt been around that long, but its gettin popular.
Ok, so where is tricking? Tricking is most popular on the west coast of the US, like cali, but its also found across the US, france, germany, korea, and other places.
Where are the trickers? Well, the really good trickers can be seen as stunt men in martial arts and action films, some trickers do circus acts, and other entertainment related jobs.
How do you learn to trick? TEACH YOURSELF! Thats what makes tricking so bad ass and unique, you teach yourself. But nowadays tricking classes have started, so there is always that option.
How do you teach yourself? By watching online tutorials, they can be found on youtube, and other tricking sites such as club540.com, trickstutorials.com, tricknation.com, 24htrickster.com, tricksession.com, and other tricking sites.
How long does it take to get good? That simply relies on how hard you practice, the average tricker becomes really good around 3 years of tricking.
Aight, this is yourfriendthepro. Tricking is the most progressive, insane, fun, interesting, addicting, and SICK sport I have ever seen. (haha, other than skiing haha). The other thing that I really thought I should share, is that it is crazy how much it helps you wit skiing. I mean, this kid, and trust me some trickers can go even bigger, can land a fucking 1080 on flat ground without even running into it. Although tricking has different terminology, they throw corks, bios, mistys, kangs, lincolns, and other crazy flips...as well as fronts and backs...like its no problem. Its like parkour, but 500000x better. If i had a quarter for everytime i have seen a thread about, "what i can do in the summer to improve my skiing", id have a shit ton of quarters. Other than summer setups THIS IS THE ANSWER! skiing is progressing at a crazy rate, and the kids who learn this shit will be able to roll ahead of the freestyle crowd with style, ease, and steeze. Please, check this shit out, dont look past it. This shit is fuckin legit, and if you can grow some balls, you can learn in no time. Why film gay (im sorry, some are actually pretty sick) trampoline and divingboard edits, when you can be progressing at the speed of light just by learning some tricking moves. One more thing, we need to bring some phresh style to this shit and I feel like were just the crowd to do it.
Heres a short edit I put together. hope you enjoy. Keep in mind that this kid broke his toe like an hour earlier. O and sorry bout the filming, shot that shit on a cellphone bitches.
Message me with questions about tricking and check out the sites mentioned earlier, especially club540. TRICKING IS LEGIT!
As another afterthought, i have also created a tricking cult, titled: TRICKING CULT.
So join up and learn how to trick!!!!!!!
