    learn to ride really fast on all types of stuff, from shitty old asphalt to cobbles and cement,
    then get your ollies and nollies down, ollie high and be secure with it, at the same time, practice manuals.
    whats going to feel natural pretty soon is to do frontsides and backsides. shoveits are something that you
    work on constantly because they are so simple. but you will pretty soon want to do flips, its just they are not the important stuff, if you can frontside a three set and go fast and big doing it, and be confident landing that, thats worth sooo much more than kickflipping it or varial flipping it when youre not confident about the basics.

    this is how you will pretty soon be able to connect your shit to 50-50s, boardslides, k-grinds, and learn in a satisfying pace.

    practicing frontside heels when you cant even do basic shit is just not clever. its how i learned skateboarding, and i really regret not being more scientific about it. its not 100% necessary, and everyones different, but its something i been thinking about.
