Nice angle + nice grind=Great pic.

Jun 20, 2003 broox

notice the wrap on my right leg. this is a week after i sprained my ankle really bad (i know some of you have seen the video of that)... it was the only grind i could do that day because it didn't put any pressure on it.

Jun 20, 2003 Mart

This is where I say 'ooh, nice backside wheelbarrow', and Fordy goes off on some spiel about topsides...

Jun 20, 2003 Nick

LOL... I thought that was a sock, I never heard about your ankle.

Jun 20, 2003 GreenBeret

cool picture...those shoes look nice.

Jun 20, 2003 aaron

at first i though someone was doing a rough mizsuo on skates... guess not btw mart, if you wanna get technical this trick is neither backside nor is it topside... it would be a rough mizsuo, with no additional names added

Jun 20, 2003 GreenBeret

yea rough mizou. but there's no way u can topside on soaps. u dont have a frame to grind on.

Jun 20, 2003 broox

it's just a wheelbarrow, yo. i'm moving in the direction that my front foot is pointing.

Jun 21, 2003 aaron

mizsuo on soaps where your trail foot is in backside position is just a "mizsuo"... a mizsuo on soaps where your trail foot is in frontside position is a "sweatstance". an alley-oop mizsuo where your leading foot is in backside position is just an "alley-oop mizsuo". an alley-oop mizsuo on soaps wheres your leading foot is in frontside position is a "kindgrind"

Jun 21, 2003 aaron

grinding on the heel adds the term "rough" to it... for example this would be a rough mizsuo... a wheelbarrow is actually a rollerblading term, its like this only the front foot is rolling on the heel wheel rather than grinding... but on both soaps and rollerblades a mizsuo with the souling foot on the heel is called a "rough mizsuo" or just a "rough grind"

Jun 21, 2003 broox

well, i dont really want to get too technical with soaps... i jsut call it a wheelbarrow cause that's what you would be doing if you were on skates... but then i guess all sole tricks on soaps would be on the wheels, so whatever. i should have just titled it, "grinding with the t-bones"

Jun 21, 2003 Mart

Yeah, I know it's a rough mizuo. But I was talking to Fordy once about backside mizuos and he said they'd be topside mizuos, thus sweatstances. He also went off on something about farside, but I have no idea what that is

Jun 21, 2003 GreenBeret

yea wheelbarrows on skates are like an old school trick. they look funny.

Jun 21, 2003 broox

i have some video of my friend zach doing one accross a bench... i think it looks pretty dope. it might be the insanely good angle that i got, though.

Jun 21, 2003 fordy

blah blah blah topside dude i wasn't going to say that anyway. And in theory you are topsiding on soaps but obviously you can't. I dont know if i can explain this in text, but if you think about it if an x plate goes down the middle of a shoe, even though there is no distinguishable area between the left and right hand side, if you compare it to where the frame position would be on a pair of skates then i was told that this could be considered ' farside' as in effect you would be jumping over the rail IF you would have frames. But this doesn't make a lot of sense because they are not skates...and so i'll stop trying to explain things to mart that are bullshit in the future... Nice Pic though

Jun 21, 2003 fordy

and no mart, my argument was that they were plain Mizuos...not backside Mizuos...remember? i said that the way you did your ally-oop's was the same way as a kindgrind which i said could be considered topside...for the reason i just tried to explain. but meh, forget it

Jun 22, 2003 fordy

yeah i do know the difference aaron...

Jun 23, 2003 Louis

Skate/soap jargon aside, thats fucking sweet

Word up.

Apr 23, 2006 Louis

this was cool until i noticed the microscooter in the background...... i prefer the next photo...

Apr 23, 2006 Surfaced

Jack... use words. This isn't AIM.

Sweet grind, Derek.

Jul 12, 2006 AnthoFlex

Ummm....whats a topside?....i read all of the comments and Mart, GreenBeret, and Aaron all mentioned it...what does it look like?

Jul 13, 2006 zeek309

topsides can only be done on skates. to do a topside soul its basically like doing a normal soul but you are jumping to the other side of the rail. example: http://extreme.sapo.pt/gfx/199732.gif this guy jumped on that rail from the right side.

Jul 13, 2006 AnthoFlex

Damn.....thats a nice freaking sk8park

Jan 8, 2007 snikas

what kinda grind is this. im not sure

Jan 11, 2007 snikas

oh never mind. i got it.

Jan 11, 2007 broox

this isn't a skatepark btw. it's just some ledge on the western illinois university campus

Jan 11, 2007 AnthoFlex

I know...i was talking about zeek309's comment....it had a link to show a dude in a skatepark doing a Topside.....Its about 4 comments above urs Broox

Feb 27, 2007 kobansora

That is a nice ass grind.


Feb 27, 2007 RamenRadio

T-Bones, I miss you

Mar 10, 2007 AnthoFlex

Topsides? Farsides? wtf,

Thats why Sk8ing has the best names. Blading has all this complictaed shit that noone understands

In sk8ing, the tricks are exactly how they sound

Mar 11, 2007 SonicSoaper

Except for the stalefish. It doesn't even look like a fish.

Mar 11, 2007 AnthoFlex

yes it does, it looks like a dried up fish

hence the name: Stalefish

Mar 11, 2007 SonicSoaper

Seriously? Then about boneless?

Mar 11, 2007 AnthoFlex

one of your limbs is planted on the floor.

So bone-less

Mar 11, 2007 sam

How about a melon?

Mar 11, 2007 AnthoFlex

Dunno, u got me there haha

Mar 12, 2007 SonicSoaper

See? Not all of them look how they sound.

Mar 12, 2007 mets603412

nice grind

Jun 3, 2007 Locke

When I saw the thumbnail of this I thought it was a shot of somebody heeling. The first thought in my mind was 'WTF, NOES!!'

But it's a grind, so 's all good.

I am going to have to correct the stalefish grab definition.

"Named by Tony Hawk, in honour of the quality of food at the Swedish Skate Camp where it was invented "

Jun 22, 2007 AnthoFlex

I tried doing a wheelbarrow with my Broadsides on a ledge and i couldnt do it. I could only do it if my front foot was at an angle. Ifi tried to do it like this, i would stall COMPLETELY. Its impossible to use Sole plates on ledges like this pic up here.

Derek, you sure you slid on that ledge? Because i tried it and theres no way you can stay on a ledge like that on sole plates (i'm talking about that front foot). Or are the Sole plates of the t-bones and Broadsides different?

Jun 22, 2007 zeek309

i was there while he was doing these and yes he was sticking them. i think on these shoes if you get all the way back on the heel of the grind plate its not as deep into the sole of the shoe so you can get more of the grind plate onto the ledge.

Jun 23, 2007 AnthoFlex

Thats probably it, i dunt have T-bones so i dunno.

Good call Zach

Jun 23, 2007 SonicSoaper

Well Renny I'm sure you've seen the sole plate on the T-Bones. They're different than the Slipknot in theback because of the way the T-Bone slant.

Jul 18, 2007 AnthoFlex

i got to use Travis' T-bones on Sunday and i have to say...

Wheelbarrows on Ledges with Broadsides and T-bones are two totally different stories

Nov 23, 2009 jackswhack

i want these shoes where can i buy them

Mar 2, 2010 Brad

I hate how T-Bones only had half a sole plate. Other than this trick, what's the point in them? Other than them being good looking shoes :)
