50-50s are a grinding trick, which means the skater is sliding across a rail, ledge, or the coping on their trucks. In a 50-50 grind the skater uses both trucks to grind and 50% of their weight is distributed over each truck. This is a pretty basic beginner trick but it is a bit more complex than the rock to fakie or rock and roll. There are three steps to this trick which makes it a little more complicated than some of the other beginner ramp tricks. On ramps, the skater must first ride up the ramp, turn 90° onto the coping, and then drop back in. Timing is usually the most tricky part. On rails and ledges 50-50 grinds are one of the first tricks that skaters learn. It is all a matter of popping a high enough ollie and putting both trucks on to grind. Taking this trick step-by-step is the best way to get this trick down.
