I think he means switch..?

Jun 23, 2003 Jordan_Thompson

Switch & Fakie are the same (I think). The picture is of me... if you didn't know...

switch and fakie are different. fakie means going backwards like if u were rolling or somthin. switch is switch that simple. but on another note cool grind.

Jun 23, 2003 Smokey

Well since Jordan skateboards he probably got confused with all the inline terms. Fakie in skateboarding is the same as switch in inline terms.

fakie/switch who cares man, thats friggin' sweet man.

Jun 23, 2003 GreenBeret

how is fakie in skate boarding switch in inline? fakie means goin backwards. there is no switch in inline other than grinding and i dunno is spinning has a switch.

Thought he had something wrong there, but nice pic anyway.

Not bad, not bad

GreenBeret, you just answered your own question.

GreenBeret, he said 'Fakie in skateboarding is the same as switch in inline terms', not that fakie in blading is the same as in boarding

Ok, how about this. Fakie and switch are completly different in the sports of skateboarding and inline. Fakie in inline is riding backwards, fakie in skateboarding is riding switch while being in a nollie position. I have no idea if there is switch in inline, but my guess(so dont hate me) is grinding with your feet in the opposite position that you are used to, while in skateboarding it is different because switch is a stance and you can be switch all the time not just during a grind.

Just for the record, for anyone who agrees with Jordan_Thompson's first comment here,

Fakie and Switch are NOT the same thing

Screw the caption, this is a sick grind.

i'm gonna settle the first few comment's on this debate on Fakie and Switch

Fakie (Skateboarding):

When you pop off the nose when riding switch

Switch (Skateboarding):

When you ride the other way.

Fakie (In-lining):

When you ride backwards into the trick

Switch (In-lining):

When you grind the other way
