1 Hour to Teach Him the Trick that took me YEARS to Learn

published on July 17, 2020

The notorious curb nudge it's not that hard to do it's just extremely tricky now's the time I want to see your full effort I want to see you get up onto this curve what's up everyone I hope quarantines not been too rough on you I just had a kidney stone so that

Was like nine days of hell but I also still have a job so I can't really complain coz this is a really really bad time for a lot of people simply just trying to make ends meet it's also a really bad time for mental

Health you know our sanity is so fragile and yet it's all too easy to lose track of what keeps us sane and personally I think the best way to keep yourself in check is by simply going outside just go do something like a walk or a bike ride

Or my personal favorite one wheeling in actual activity that requires social distancing you see there's nothing inherently dangerous with simply being outside it's getting close to people or touching things that's the actual danger

As long as you can mitigate those risks you can actually go about in public safely I mean it's why we're still allowed to go to grocery stores as long as we maintain social distancing so in this video I'm gonna try to safely teach

My friends how to do one of the most requested one wheel tricks out there it's called a curb nudge and it's when you're able to actually get your one wheel up a curb for like the street to the sidewalk it seems to defy physics

But it's actually very doable I'm gonna see if I can get my friends to learn how to do it enjoy watching what I'm sure will be a lot of flailing and failing the notorious curb nudge it's not that hard to do it's just extremely tricky

Because there are three things you got to do in very rapid succession and if you don't do them in the correct order it just doesn't happen and the first one is my favorite the skid stop so it's just like extreme breaking the

Second thing you're gonna need to practice is just practice getting your nose up onto a curb without even trying to go up it and the last thing the foot motion so you're jumping off of your back foot and then your front foot here

On the curb is just sliding forward so those are the three main things we need to practice and then we can actually try working on the actual nut job let's go ahead and get the circle here and I want to see you guys ask it stops

right you have to fully take your foot off the front pad or else you keep going forward and he walks away these guys basically get the general idea now it's just a matter of practice you take what

You're learning right now and you just got to just do it over and over again until you start really feeling it I'm actually really impressed with how fast Jake's picking it up too he just got his one wheel over the weekend so now that

We've kind of gone over the skid aspect of it you want to practice actually getting the nose of your one wheel up onto a curb you're not trying to climb it yet you're just kind of getting comfortable with that sort of motion

It's a very delicate mechanic here because you have to actually slide into the curb pressing your front foot down to accelerate the wheel up the curb before you actually make contact because if your wheel makes contact with the

Curb before you've actually started trying to step up you're just going to bounce off of it you're going to go onto the curb and the wheels gonna stay on the street and then once you kind of get used to that they start trying to

Practice the skid stop into the curb alright you pack so we're slowly starting to combine these few elements together the next step is actually the flick of the foot and arguably that's the hardest part

The reason for the skid stop is because you're actually jumping off of that back foot and so once you're about to actually hit the curb your front foot slides into it and as your back foot is completely weightless on the back part

Of the foot pad the board just kind of climbs up it's like you're trying to stab the sidewalk with your toes that's what will keep the one-wheel going forward I guess now's the time I want to see your full effort I want to see you

Get up onto this pair Dean you're being too aggressive Jake Niko you're not being aggressive enough so you want the nose to hit the curb before the tire does yes Jake is surprisingly but closest one so

Far and he just got his one wheel yesterday in martial arts people who have learned less actually can learn new skills faster because somebody who's been in this case one wheeling for a long time they've developed really hard

Patterns and for like new people like me and Jake it's just like this is all new so it's just kind of like the learning comes a little bit easier well forget Ricky trick I will be incredibly surprised if anyone gets this it took me

An entire day of practicing before I finally got it you definitely you definitely got it Jake you just got to practice it down I recommend trying to start skidding way sooner

Wow did it's really hard to overstate how important it is to really just jump off of your back foot with all your mind and just stabbing that front foot forward

Way sooner than you expect to pop my nose Oh

Do it again ready go this is a forward motion is really for your upper body so that you can pop and move the board forward but you don't actually want the board to be moving

That much when it contacts the D curve you want there to be just enough pressure so that that your your body's forward momentum digs into the nose and then brings up the behind with it the final rule is do everything possible

You can do to not fall once your feet are back on the board that would have taken me weight be longer had it not been for your teaching sensei like I want to give you a hug but I won't I'm knowledge Italy impressed

I even hosted a one wheel herb clinic with the Los Angeles one wheel group here like 20 people showed up and not a single one of them got it this poor dummy like maybe like less than 10 miles on it wise wise professor Ren broke it

Down in steps that were easy to understand easy to follow and easy to do to get it now I would recommend having float plates when you do this Jeff McArthur from the flow life actually makes them we're also distributed on

Crafts and ride to amazing sites to get all the one-wheel accessories you might possibly want but I highly recommend picking up a pair of float plates they will protect your board from this kind of damage so now I'm gonna try something

A little different I'm gonna dedicate a different patreon name to a different curb for every name glitch cube Allen Almanza no tech an ad in spy Phillip Oxford Paris red Jeep ajik CJ lemonade Jordan Matisse but Kirk Sunil s Robin

Chao Dre Dwyer thank you to everyone who supports us on patreon we've also got a website up and running if you are interested in that sort of thing the hope you continue to stay safe out there it's a crazy time they're still probably

Gonna be some people who think we shouldn't be here at all and I mean they've kind of got a point but I do think that we are trying really hard to mitigate risk we are not touching each other we're not coming

Close to each other wearing masks and staying outside of each other's bubbles that's the really key thing here we're not really being dangerous just be responsible
