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

    Brian Tucci: My name is Brian Tucci. We are at State of Confusion Skate Park. I am going to show you the Axle Stall. Before I show you the axle stall, I want to basically show you the mechanics of how it actually works. You are going to be coming up the ramp basically, with enough speed to reach the lip. As you are about to reach the lip, you are going to want to lift your front truck up just a little bit, continue to ride up and as you get to the top, you are going to let your back wheel hit the coping and you are going to pivot on your truck. As you come around, you are going to lean back with your heel edge and send in yourself over the coping and put your truck down. Then from there it's pretty. It's just like your drop-in. So you are just going to turn back in a little bit and roll away, pretty simple. So I am going to run through this skill a number of times just so you can really get the feel of the motion of rocking back on to your heel edge and leveling your board off to axle. Now here is another view from another angle. So that was the axle stall. Now we are going to move on to the Grind.
