7 day Skateboard Mastery: Day 7 The Grind

A Smith grind is a trick where you grind on only your back trucks. The nose of your board leans to one side of the rail or ledge. The Smith grind can be done on any rail, ledge, or curb. It involves you ollieing up onto a rail or ledge, locking your back trucks into a grind, and then popping off and landing back on the ground. This is an advanced trick. Before attempting a Smith grind, be comfortable with basic tricks like the ollie. You should also be comfortable with both 50/50 and 5-0 grinds before trying to Smith grind.

1. Position yourself properly on the board. To get up on the rail or ledge for a Smith grind you will need to position your body to perform an ollie.

  • There are two types of Smith grinds: backside and frontside. However, the trick is always performed by grinding with only the back trucks on the rail or ledge. The difference between a backside and frontside is determined by which way you are facing when you grind on the rail. If you are facing the rail, that is a frontside Smith grind. If your back is to the rail, that is a backside.
  • This is a complicated trick and before attempting to do a Smith grind, you should be comfortable doing a 50/50 and 5-0 grind. The 50/50 grind is a basic grind that places both trucks on the rail. The 5-0 grind places one set of trucks on the rail, causing you to balance the other end of the board above it.
  • It's best to learn this trick on a flat bar or ledge. A rounded bar will be harder to balance on.

2. Shift your weight toward your back foot. As you push off and start rolling you will have to shift your weight toward your back foot as you prepare to ollie.

  • Try pressing on the board with just the ball of your front foot to keep the nose of the board down as you start moving.
  • You want both of your feet covering most of the width of your board. Meaning, you don’t want to have either foot hanging off the edge of your board much.
