The tricks in this video include:

This looks cool. Since I am looking into starting rails I might try to buy this once I get more money!

At first I thought "15 minutes ...... even if it's interesting ...... can I really get entertained that long?".

Now I know I am going to watch the entire clip again and bookmark it permanently. SA videos have helped me in the past and I have given SA great comments at youtube. It's just that I am using a different account name there and SA might wonder who I am.

I have learned a lot from this promo video too. The idea of using a skate board is also fantastic. My only problem now is that I want to get one, but I don't have a yard or a garage. I live in an apartment and all that hopping is going to get my downstairs neighbor file me a complaint. But I will figure a way out.

I really love how compact the Balance Bar is. It's a small thing that I believe will make me a giant (I know I might be exaggerating) in the resort.

Does it mention anywhere how much the kit is?

Hey SA -- here's a suggestion for a new instructional vid. Tricks on side hits. They're different from what you do on park jumps for instance. There must be dozens of small tricks, from pretzels and sameways through alley-oops off banks and jumps off bumps. But concentrate on ad-libbed stuff.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Hi thanks dude for your comment we have a number of new tutorial videos coming out for this year from corked spins frontside and backside, rodeos and new buttery stuff which we might be able to cover some of these points, will let you know. Happy shredding dude
