Happy Tooth and I got together and decided IT’S TIME more everyday normal people skate chains with us. We have only been skating chains for a year now. In this video learn some tips we have picked up ourselves along the way. So come dive deeper into the world of TINY and the Chain Gang haha. - Hawke Trackler.

From time-to-time your skating path might present an obstacle in your way. If you don’t feel like dodging you could give it a go and jump over the obstacle. Danny Aldridge explains how to jump in this episode of Danny’s Point. […] - PLAY.
In this episode of Danny’s Point we join Danny Aldridge on a beautiful day at the skatepark to learn the basics of grinding on inline skates. When you have mastered the basics of inline skating you might find yourself adventuring into the skate park or streets. Here you’ll see other skaters sliding across handrails or ledges. This movement is called grinding, and, done correctly, grinding makes you feel like you are floating.

For people that don’t want the banter, the actual tutorial starts at 5:00. I found out the hard way that I’m not nearly as good at X-grinds as I thought I was, haha. This one was fun to make, I had all my friends at the session with me. But it’s definitely hard to think critically about tricks whenever everyone at the session is messing with you.
I tried my best. As usual, the points I delivered don’t encompass the full scope of “X-grinds,” but I think it’s more than anything that’s been put out prior sooo… Good enough! I thought that I had gotten all of the versions of x-grinds on film, but as I went back and re-watched the footage, a lot of the ones that were landed weren’t good examples of the trick.
I want these videos to put the best foot forward (no pun intended), to really show what the trick should look like when done well. Since I had all the boys with me, we just started sessioning normally. A lot of the clips we had, we didn’t slide the whole ledge, we landed a little neutral, etc… So I thought to myself, “alright, no problem. There’s an easy looking ledge down the street, I can just ask Caleb to help me re-film it”. Well… As easy as that spot looks, there’s giant cracks on the ground, you can only approach it from one direction (the hard direction, for me) and it was an absolute disaster..
So I’m sticking with the box footage! Haha! But, all of that aside, as I say in the video, we can’t get it right all the time. So cut my actual physical ability some slack on this one, I’m just working with what I’ve got. I hope you are too! Thanks for watching. Love y’all. - Cody Sanders.
It is waaay too cold to be outside, but we’re out here. Also, it turns out that trying to record audio under a very loud overpass wasn’t the best idea, haha. This is a short one, not too many steps to this trick. I still think it’s important to go over though.
I stress the importance of non-dominant foot placement in the video. On average, I’ve noticed most backwards grinding pornstars are locked perfectly. They have to be locked perfectly or else you’ll stick. The forwards versions can be done pretty lazily. While doing the forwards versions, the back foot can be all over the top of the ledge, sliding all over the place with no clearly defined position.
I think consistency is important. I think if we’re going to spend this much time doing something, we should give it the respect of thought and effort. Thank you to Mick Casals for being the talent and to Anthony Medina for sending me a very sick sidewalk example. As I said at the beginning of the video, if you’ve watched any of the other ones, commented, sent any messages to me, etc.. Thank you. It may not seem like much, but I’m always so surprised to see the amount of love that is shown from our community. Y’all are rad. - Cody Sanders.
Huge thanks to Rob Scallon for teaching us how to do this amazing trick on rollerblades. We love these types of collaborations. Anything on wheels is our jam. Who do you want to see us collaborate with next? - Braille Skateboarding (Youtube).
