  • A Caveman is into grind, it is also called caveman into flat. It only is a bomb drop when performed into a bank. J-Ros 17:27, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Trick suggestions[edit]

We're going to keep all trick suggestions to this section before putting them in. Make sure to not only describe the trick but CITE SOURCES as well. --Liface 09:57, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm with you on this one. I'm going to be very aggressive at keeping the crap out of these articles. I'm a very experienced skateboarder and I feel I can call bullshit on stuff that's way too out there. For tricks that are common and you can just pick up any skateboard mag to see one and see the name, we don't have to add anything, but ANY UNSOURCED ADDITIONS WILL BE DELETED. I've had enough of people playing a couple video games and telling you about all the bull that they've supposedly "seen" and then adding it to these articles. ENOUGH ALREADY.

In this video, Eric Koston used to refer to crooked grinds as "pointer grinds." Should we add this to the article? AlexWangombe (talk) 21:19, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Only if you add proof (ie. source, reference, and/or external links)--Panyé El Skat-é-board-ér 13:39, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
