Cheater five


The cheater five is a hang five done with a wide stance and most of the weight back well behind the front trucks. It is a "trimming" position that is nice for high speed and stability. It differs from a "solid five" which means the feet are close together at the nose and is more of a balancing trick.

The skater has walked up and dropped into a cheater five. His hips are well back, keeping the weight on the middle of the board. The feeling is like sitting in a very low chair.

He stands up out of the position. From here he can half shuffle his back foot close to the front for a solid five. Or he can backpedal to a turning stance.

If you can get through these tricks, you may want to try some of the more difficult nose tricks in the Advanced Soup section.
