This maneuver entails the back truck grinding an edge or rail, while the front truck hangs over the near side of the object,leaving the edge of the deck to rub the lip/edge. This trick was named after its inventor Mike Smith. It is considered by many to be the most difficult basic grind trick.The backside version was originated by deaf Florida powerhouse Monty Nolder. thumb|300px|right
1-Aporach the rail or whatever straight on this helps to get on to it.
2-Ollie on to it and try to get the front of your board over the edge of it so the the front wheel is on what your grinding.
3-to get of just wait till you get to the end of what your grinding or just pop out of it thumb|300px|left
