A grind trick is something that where a part of the Skateboard meets something but keeps going normally the trucks but sometimes the deck.Grinds are a form of skateboarding trick where the skateboarder slides on the hangers of the trucks. Grinds are performed on any object that may fit between the space between the wheels where the truck meets.

The move likely originated in backyard pools, as the early skaters gained in skill and confidence with their high speed carves around the top of the pool walls and one day went that little bit too high. The trucks of the time, often being merely 'borrowed' rollerskate trucks, didn't allow much contact due to their inherent narrowness, but as skateboarding gained its own truck manufacturers who widened the hanger design, the possibilities for exploration became apparent, and all sorts of moves started popping up. Nowadays they are commonly performed on handrails or on the lips of objects such as benches, but any suitably hard, smooth edge will do.

Basic Grind TricksEdit

  • 50-50 (both Trucks are on it)
  • Boardslide (the bottom of the deck is used)
  • 5-0 (the manual of a grind)

Advance Grind TricksEdit

  • Nose Slide (the nose is on a 90 degree angle)
  • Tail Slide (Same as a Nose slide but the tail is used
  • Smith Grind(the back trucks are like a 50-50 but the front is over what your grind)
  • Crooked Grind (opposite of a Smith grind)

Pro Grind TricksEdit

  • Nose Grind (The front Trucks are in a nose manual position)
  • Tail Grind (The back trucks are in a manual postion very similar to a 5-0
  • Salad (This is like the 5-0 but the front truck is over the far side of the rail)
  • Over Crook Grind (The same as a Crooked grind but the Decks over the rail at an angle)
  • Feeble Grind (back truck grinds while the front truck hangs over the rail's far side)
  • Willy Grind (front truck sliding on the grinding surface while the back truck hangs down)
  • Darkslide (opposite of a boardslide where the grip tape is the one slided on)
