How to Do a Crooked Grind on a Skateboard

Learn how to do a crooked grind from professional skateboarders Bam Margera and Kerry Getz in this Howcast skateboarding video.


Bam: Now we're going to show you what a crooked grind is. A crooked grind is when you perch the rail backside, you ollie, and your truck goes into a crooked grind position and you pretty much just have to ollie and jam it right in there.

Kerry: You're grinding on this part of your truck, this part right here is what you're grinding on and the pressure is on your front heel, to kind of keep you locked in.

Bam: Basically like a nose grind only it's more of an angle like that.

Kerry: Again, the crooked grind is kind of like how I explained the five O, you kind of want to lean on your heel, to lock the wheel into the ledge or the rail, whatever you're grinding, to keep the pressure locked in and keep you're truck crooked, keep you locked onto that spot.

Bam: And that's how you do a crooked grind.
