   THE WAVES

Routines for a 100 yard hill

The Waves are the routines that combine turns and tricks, from the top of the hill to the bottom. Pictures and notes explain the maneuvers that make up a complete ride. Good practice for surfers. Good discipline for skaters who want to put moves together into a sequence that has a beginning, middle, and end.

Wave 1 - Backside turn, nose ride, kickout.
Wave 2 - Frontside turn and cutback, walk, nose ride, kickout.
Wave 3 - Nose ride and stall, back pedal, kickout.
