Skateboard Video Vault: Willy Grind

The Willy Grind looks like a backwards smith grind. This trick is generally undesirable because it looks like an accident. Most skaters do this when they’re learning how to 5050 or axle stall and they miss their back truck.  Basically what happens is the skater hooks their front truck on the coping and the back truck just hangs off.  There are quite a few skaters who get creative with this trick and actually make it really cool.
