Skateboard Video Vault: Madonna

The Madonna

The Madonna is a front side judo kick to tail. It’s basically the combination of a lien to tail and a judo kick with a nose grab. This trick looks really cool because the skater extends their front leg really far while in the air and it looks like they’re doing the splits. Landing back on the coping and going back in is the most difficult part of this trick. It requires 100% commitment. If the skater is over the board enough it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. They just have to get comfortable throwing their body back on the board. This is a trick people normally do in vert and pool skating.
