Welcome to the Lush Longboards Learning Curve! This is our “how to longboard” resource, covering all kinds of longboard trick tips, slides and essential moves.
Featuring step-by-step guides and demonstrated by our team riders, this is the perfect place to learn how to slide, or perhaps help you figure out a technical longboard dance move that you’ve been struggling with.
There’s no need to work through these in a particular order, but once you start reading a few you’ll see that some tricks will be a lot easier if you’ve learnt others first. For example, a Beanplant is similar to a 180 No Comply with a grab added – so learn the 180 No Comply first and you’ll find the Beanplant much easier.
Likewise we recommend that you learn how to slide with a “glove down” before attempting any standup slides. Glove down slides are a lot safer for beginners, and will give you a feeling for getting your wheels sideways and controlling them once you’re there.
We’ve optimised this section of the website for faster loading times and smartphone sceens, so you can read through them anywhere, with no need for a lot of data usage or even a good mobile signal.
Each step is freeze-framed with a detailed description, making it super easy to break a trick down and deal with it step by step. No more waiting for videos to load, or trying to freeze-frame/rewind on your phone whilst wearing your slide gloves!
We’ll be covering everything from the very basics right up to race-level tips from the pros.
Featuring different Lush Team Riders, the focus is on making hard-won skate knowhow straightforward, accessible and clear to access. We’re putting pro-level skate tips in your pocket for you to learn anytime, anyplace.
We’re adding new tips and tricks all the time, so check back regularly to see what’s new. Please tell us what you’d like to see next!
