A young Kevin Kowalski guides us through a how-to/trick tutorial on the Tailblock.
There are a few different variations of this trick and they are all moderately difficult.
The hardest part about this trick is that you have to balance your whole body weight on the tail of your skateboard.
Losing your balance is not uncommon and can lead to many epic faceplants.
Today Kevin is teaching a trick that is far older than he is, but he’s sure got it mastered.
Tailblocks were known as an old-school trick that originated in the late 70’s to early 80’s.
It was a classic back then and sort of died out but has made a strong come back in contemporary skateboarding.
Be sure to get out there and put these teachings to the test!
