Website design By BotEap.comWe are getting closer to the return of the Dew Tour, and I can’t wait! On June 25 you need to hurry up and get here so you can see all the crazy stunts that I haven’t even imagined yet! The tour begins in Boston and should bring us some of the best skateboarding, BMX and FMX the world has ever seen. The Dew Tour, like the X Games, is known for advancing the disciplines of skateboarding, BMX and FMX. The tour is 5 stops and is a contest for the entire season. You can’t win a contest and get the cup, you have to be consistent through all 5 stops to have a chance to win the crown. With that said, here are the top 5 green skateboarding tricks ever released in a contest, according to me. Website design By BotEap.comStarting at n. 5 are all the crazy kick shots that have been thrown lately. I never thought the kick flip would be a normal part of a vert routine, but every finalist at last year’s X Games had at least 2 flip tricks in their careers. From a regular kick flip to Danny Mayer’s Mc Twist kick flip, they’re here to stay in vert. The complexity of flipping the board over, catching it, and putting it back under your feet is obvious upon first viewing. Kick flips add a great deal of difficulty and excitement to any race.

While doing a 540, he grabs the board with his back hand in front of his front foot, spins the board, and tucks it back under his feet with his hand on the back of the board under his back foot. I had to watch the video of this hack several times to understand everything that is happening. I’ve heard a rumor that Shaun is working to add a throwback to this hack and I hope it’s true. Website design By BotEap.comAt # 3 is Danny Mayer’s Mc Twist kick flip. When Danny gets into this trick it looks like he’s not going to catch the cartwheel board as he rolls to the 540. He has to rotate the board when he kicks the flip so he’s actually doing a 180 kick flip to get the board to keep up. . the rotation of your body. This trick is so difficult that it has won some top trick contests for Mr. Mayer. Now to the heavy hitters! Website design By BotEap.comIn the N. 2 are all 720 that have landed. The video doesn’t show all the crazy variations that riders are doing today, but you get the point. PLG and Andy Macdonald perform different versions of the 720 in their regular vertical routines. It wasn’t too long ago that a 720 could win a best tricks contest on its own and now it has become a staple! Website design By BotEap.comThe number 1 shouldn’t surprise anyone who likes vert: the big 900. Tony Hawk started it all, but now at least 4 people have pulled off this great trick in competition. It’s hard to imagine Tony was so far ahead of everyone else, but he was. Website design By BotEap.comThat’s the list of the best vert tricks if you ask me, but now I’m asking you. What do you think are the best tricks ever thrown on a vertical ramp?
