All about Tricking

Tricks

All trickers should know perfectly if not the whole list of existing tricks, at least most of them.

Types of tricks

The types of tricks can be divided into three different categories:

  • Kicks
  • Flips
  • Twist

Besides of these three groups, then the tricks can be combined into new movements. You can see an example of this on the following table:

Setups and transitions

Besides of tricks, there are some other movements that every tricker must know. These are vital to continue progressing on Tricking and they help on linking different tricks:

Setups: As their name indicates, these are the movements that start a trick. They are:

  • Cheat
  • Pop
  • Scoot
  • B-Step
  • J-Step
  • Axe

Transitions: Transitions are those movements that allow trickers to link two or more tricks. They are not considered tricks as they are mainly used to stabilize and help trickers to progress to a new trick. They are:

  • Back Sweep
  • Carry-Through
  • Cartwheel
  • Front Sweep
  • Hook Kick
  • J-Step
  • Missleg
  • Reverse Swing
  • Round-Off
  • Scoot
  • Scoot Hyper
  • Slide-In
  • Swing-Through
  • Wrap-Through

Combos

Combos are made when a tricker finishes a trick and immediately starts a new trick. In order to be able of doing good combos, a tricker must be aware not only of the different tricks but of the different setups and transitions.

Tricks by difficulty

The difficulty in Tricking is very relative, as it totally depends on the tricker’s abilities.

Even though, Club540 has created a list of tricks that are classified by their difficulty after being analysed and reviewed by thousands of trickers. New tricks are added regularly and the list is now organized on the following way:

  1. Absolute Novice Tricks
