Skateboard Video Vault: Body Varial

A Body Varial is a 180 degree spin where the skater’s body spins and the skateboard does not.  It is a pretty funny trick and has recently become trendy on the internet.  Usually skaters do Body Varials within a combination of tricks or at the tail end of their tricks to add an extra degree of complexity.   Body Varials can be done backside, frontside, and while riding fakie.  This isn’t considered a hard trick.  The trickiest part is doing it blindside and trusting yourself to land back on the board.  When learning this trick it is best to start off in the grass and then taking to the sidewalk.  As always, just have fun with it!
