Because riding a 2x4 plank of wood proves naturally challenging to most people, the Know Skateboarding application for your iPhone will help iron out the kinks in your kick-flip technique.
Know Projects has been developing how-to websites and applications for quite some time, and has finalized a collaboration with Element Skateboards to help would-be skaters shred the streets with finesse and attitude. The best members of Team Element, including Mark Appleyard, Levi Brown, Chad Tim Tim and Darrell Stanton, will guide you through each progressively difficult trick. Each video (captured in HD and programmed to allow slow-mo playback) will illustrate how to balance your weight and position your limbs in order to flawlessly land the trick in question.
For all the aspiring skaters, heed my advice: Never overestimate your ability, otherwise you might end up in a hospital. Good luck and try the app to improve those moves.
