Vertical skateboarding, also known as “vert skating,” emerged on the skating scene over 40 years ago, and was revolutionized by legends like Tony Hawk. Starting with basic skate tricks performed in empty swimming pools, this skating style eventually evolved into the high-flying and gravity-defying tricks seen all over skateparks, half-pipes, and mini-ramps today, with moves like the lipslide, backside ollie, and the Madonna. If you’re a more experienced skateboarder and are ready to take your tricks to the next level, you may be ready to try a bluntslide to backside 180.
