10 Easy Mini Ramp Tricks ANYONE Can Learn

Updated: Jul 28, 2019

I recently retraced my steps to when I first started skateboarding and created a list of 10 easy mini ramp tricks anyone can learn and organized them into an order that I feel is the easiest to learn them in. It can be tough for beginners to learn how to skateboard but if you start off with these mini ramp basics it will get you started off on the right foot.

Skateboarding can be an intimidating hobby to start due to the fear of injury and the high level of difficulty of learning a new trick. Something I've noticed from teaching skateboarding for over 15 years is that it is much easier for someone to start skateboarding on a mini ramp rather than trying to learn a flat ground trick such as an ollie or a kickflip.

Shifting your weight forward is essential for dropping in.

It can be tempting to want to hop on your board and jump right in to dropping in but I highly recommend learning to pump first and getting comfortable on your skateboard. Often people will attempt the drop in with a lack of comfort on the board ending in a bail where they usually slip back and fall. To prevent this from happening I created this list of 10 easy mini ramp tricks that will slowly build up your confidence .

1. Pumping

2. Bs & Fs Kickturns

3. Rock Fakie

4. Switch Rock

5. Fs & Bs Slash Grind

6. Fakie Tail Stall

7. Bs Rock n Roll

8. Drop In

9. Fly Out

10. Bs Axle Stall
