this guy has balance like no other. seriously.

Nov 18, 2003 pushead

heh, it looks like he could almost be trying to do a UFO. This is from that soap shoe demo video right?

Nov 18, 2003 ElSpanko

doesn't look like much balance to me

Nov 18, 2003 zeek309

watch the soap demo video!

Nov 19, 2003 Smokey

I beg to differ, Derek :P But this was a good grind anyhow.

Nov 19, 2003 broox

this is called style... he slid the whole rail, with a 360 out.

Looked more like a 270 on the video, unless this is a different grind

where can i find the video?

Nov 19, 2003 ticktock

That guy's got some style

Nov 19, 2003 Smokey

Actually it looks more like a 450... But I probably need new eyeballs.

Nov 19, 2003 broox

well, whatever... he spun a lot... and it looked cool, ha.

balance and style are two different things, he may have good balance, but from this pic the style is kinda lacking, his arms are flailing, from what i see a more stable/stylish grind is one where you can hold yourself fairly steady over the rail and not require wobbling around... of course i'm speaking from an inline perspective, and apparently soap shoes (despite being derived from inline) supposedly as it's own style and trick codes nowadays (ie. "cheesegraters are cool")

So? Snowboarding and skateboarding are almost identical yet some tricks are deemed 'cooler' in snowboarding that in skateboarding and vice versa

His balance and style are not appparent to me. They both look straight up wack to me. And is a 270, 360 or 450 out hard? If so it's news to me.

omg trogdor. if strong bad ever met you, i bet he would freaking rape you. you couldnt do this grind in your whole life. stop using the sacred dragons name you flamer. this grind is great.

Apr 15, 2007 sam

You don't even have to go to the video to tell that he had perfect balence. Nice grind.
