I ride right foot forward, but when I try to turndown I'm turning the bars to my right, will this be a problem? Also I've been trying them off of stairs and ledges, as I have no ability to get to a skate park

no problem. thats how it should be. when you start turning try pedaling a 1/4 crank forward. basically just drop your front foot. hope this helps

I'm on the vital legit list!

Do you think I'll have a problem learning them off of a 2ft ledge to flat?

my fucking too man! I figured I just couldn't do them because I I couldn't get the motion of doing it to the left. I'll definitely try the 1/4 crank thing.

I ride right foot forward and i motowhip my front end to the left and spin to the left regularly, but when i turndown i motowhip to the right and crank my bars counterclockwise if that makes any sence.....its freestyle there are no rights and wrongs

Learn them flyout or over a box jump or a pyramid......my best guess would be if you learn them off a ledge then try them over a jump you stand a better chance looping out or eating shit hard on them.....just a suggestion

Ok thanks for the help, when I throw them when I'm first learning, should I be trying to get perfectly clicked, or not yet

Actually, I'm almost certain you won't be able to do them properly like that. Turndowns are a complex trick, and they don't work towards your front foot.

It might be a little harder but not impossible.
There are some pretty good tutorials on YouTube, they will probably help you more.

This is what I thought because I can't find a way to get clicked at all, but if I try it normal, it fears weird and not as fun

Are there any for how to turndown towards the front foot? And do you think it will look good still or really shity going that way?

I don't think ti will look as clean but it'll do.
And I don't think so, maybe AdamLZ did one while doing one opposite don't know.

All I can say is watch that. A few times he does Turndowns towards his Front Foot (In a quarterpipe air). They are quite far from clicked, and unfortunately I think that's as far as you can really get them.

Haha yeah, he is amazing. Troy Hayward is another really good little shredder, and I met him at my local skatepark's jam 2 weeks ago.

I'm thinking that Maybe if I like quarter crank when I do it, it will work the same way that they do when you ride left foot forward

Man I'd just try them and see how it works and correct yourself while learning them.
