Trick tip videos, despite their questionable educational value, can be quite fun to watch. Remember Jamal Smith’s Tornado spin video or Stefan Janoski’s 360 flip trick tip or Bam’s SS BS TS. Watching those it seems that trick tip videos were not meant to teach us anything at all. And that was the best part.
Trick tips used to be entertaining. The main point was to dork around with friends and show off a trick you are good at. Nowadays when every trick has been taught in multiple YouTube videos, who cares about trick tip videos anymore? Well, we do. But only about old local ones featuring our friends because remembering old stuff is kinda our thing here.
With that in mind, we gathered a collection of our favorite Latvian trick tip videos. For learning convenience, videos are placed in order from basic to pro. Yes, we have pro tricks here. So sit back and inject some skate knowledge in your heads from the best online instructors Latvian Skateboarding has ever seen.
