WHAT IS DROPPING IN?

Dropping in = skating down a ramp, starting with your wheels hovering over the drop.

Knowing how to drop in is essential if you want to mess around at the skatepark. The technique for doing this trick is pretty simple. Where it gets complicated is that you have to be ready to push your limits and get over your fears

 

BASIC POSITION

Firstly, block your back wheels against the coping. Place the tail flat on the ramp's platform, with your front foot on the ground next to you and your back foot on the tail.

DROPPING IN 

Place your front foot over the bolts while keeping your back foot on the board. Transfer your weight onto your front leg while keeping your shoulders parallel to your board.

Tip: grab the NOSE as you drop in.
