Introduction: Learn to "shovel" on a Ripstick!

Picture of Learn to "shovel" on a  Ripstick!

I invented a trick i call the Shovel because you push your ripstick out in front of you then stomp it like when using a shovel.

  It is a very fun and easy way to make a  moving mount on your ripstick it should only take you an hour or two to master.

it can be done in many variations for instance you could do a  tweaked grab and put a leg out or in , you could do 360 or 540 spin

Step 1: How the Trick Is Preformed

If your goofy just follow my pictures if you're regular you'll spin the other way and use your left hand to grab the deck.

goofy ftw

heck ya!

i know a bunch of people who dance (competitively) and they are all right handed and goofy i think there might be a correlation with dance and goofyness. its funny. goofy is so much better then regular.

Yeah I'm not any good at skating. All I can do is olie and maybe pop shuv it. I'm a bit more impressive at ripsticking tho. Still working on mastering my 180* tail -180* nose

yeah not the best skater either but i snowboard crazy good and ripstick better then most skateboarding is a bit over rated

You know what's funner (yes "funner") than snow boarding? ,Ski biking.

ive always wanted to make one of those

they're great ,i cant wait to pull mine out this year.

yeah the funny part is i have a destroyable bike and skis at my house i should really get on that

yeah that's all you need and a 2 by 4 and some screws a bolt and some nuts 'n' washers.

I'm probably gonna build anew one this year or, just take the skiis off the old one and put them on a bigger frame.

skii bikes handle incredibly well even on an iced up sledding hill they've got considerable handling, if you come up with a brake mech, tell me.

I've tried a small tube that goes through the back skii that can be pulled down when a brake peddle is pressed. near had enough snow to test it and the cord ripped off.

this is soo cool! maybe could you make more instructables with ripstick tricks? that would be GREET!! :D

I have one other that i may have invented but even if I didn't i can still show others how. I still need to perfect it it's insanely hard to do.
