    Skateboarder Brian Tucci demonstrates how to do a disaster on a skateboard.

    Brian Tucci: Hi, my name is brain Tucci. We are here at State of Confusions Skate Park and I am showing you intermediate skateboard skills. The next skill I am going to show you is a Disaster. The disaster is a combination of an Air and a Stall. So basically, what you are going to do is you are going to come up the ramp, just like you would an axle stall, you are going to go with a little bit more speed and Ollie at the top of the ramp. As you Ollie, you are going to throw your board over the deck and land on the center of your board with your front wheels still in the ramp and your back wheels on the deck and then you are rolling. I am going to show you this trick a couple of times in slow motion so you get a feel of as how it looks. The trick can be done front side or back side. That's basically how you do a disaster. The next skateboarding skill we are going to learn is the Kickflip.
