Hi, my name is Andrew Curry from And today, I'm going to show you how to do a historical skateboard trick, the Smith Grind. The Smith Grind is a trick you can do either on transition, or street.

You want to Ollie up onto a curb, or you can do it on a ramp, but I'll teach you how to do it onto a ledge today. You want to Ollie up onto the ledge, and set your front truck below the back truck. It's not like a 50-50, where both trucks are grinding at the same time. Your back truck is going to be the only one grinding, and the ledge is going to be riding against the rail of your skateboard.
