Crossovers.

They look pretty cool, help you power out of corners and you can’t do your 27 in 5 without them.

But, they can also be damn tricky to master.

For any skaters out there working on crossovers…

  • DODGING A PILEUP WHILE TAKING A HIT FROM THE OPPOSING TEAM'S BLOCKER: *jump the apex with a triple lutz, stick the landing and skate off backwards flipping the double deuce*
  • STANDING AROUND ON SKATES BETWEEN DRILLS: *fall awkwardly on your ass and break EVERY BONE you've EVER HAD in the HISTORY of HAVING BONES. also you pee yourself a little.

Not doing anything tonight?  Come join the Jerzey Derby Brigade and Coach Richie for a skate clinic!
