Foot on the coping, but the jump is pretty small. I want to get this trick huge like Steve Steadham or the late Jeff Phillips. I think this trick is called a "boneless" or "boneless one". What's the difference? If anyone knows the difference feel free to advise.
This summer I got hand plants down low but I have been working them up the the coping. I didn't land this one, but I will soon. My ramp is about six feet tall, almost to vert. I am a long way from getting this trick on an eleven foot vert ramp but that is the goal.

working on it
Everyone wants to get better. We want more tricks in our bag. Sometimes skaters get frustraited with doing the same tricks over and over. We have to do the same tricks over and over. why? Because its not just about landing the trick... it's about style... art! You can land a trick, then you can get it consistent but it might take years to get it styled. Right now I am working on style... and getting things bigger and higher. Here we document the state of my less styled tricks. Hopefully future posts will show a big improvement.
