I consider myself very much a Street and Old School skateboarder but I would like to learn how to better myself in parks and on vertical ramps.
As I'm starting to take part in tournaments, what skills do I need to work on (for example balance and pumping to gain speed)?
Most of all, I want to know the ways in which I can improve my slides/grinds, stalls and airs in parks and verts. Also I would like to know when would be the best time to Pump on the ramps and pipes to gain the most speed?
To clear up any confusion, by vert I mean pipes like quarter and half pipes that have a ramp to vertical and over vert refers to ramps that bend backwards to almost make you go upside down. ramps such as full pipes.
