How to Do a 50-50 Skateboarding Ramp Trick

Learn how to do the ramp trick 50-50 from professional skateboarders Bam Margera and Kerry Getz in this Howcast skateboarding video.


Bam: So a 5050 is when you come up and both of your trucks land on the coping like this and you go back down. And you can do that front side or back side. So I guess a good idea would be first to learn how to do a kick turn which is just coming up and turning around. And then you could learn kick turns with a grind. That's pretty much a 5-0 grind. And then once you get those down then you just come up boom, both trucks. That's pretty much one of the basic tricks on a mini-ramp that you can do.

Kerry: Make sure you transfer your weight up to here and you get your balance up here to grind so that's pretty much a solid 5050 right there. So you can get back into the ramp.

Bam: So learn kick turns and then 5-0's and then you got your 5050. So that's how you do your 5050's and 5-0's and kick turns.
