If you’re confused on how somebody does a grind and lands in another grind on the same ledge, this should help clear it up!
How to Double Grind/Grind Combo
FOR THOSE WHO DON’T WANT A VIDEO GUIDE: So a select few simply depend on the momentum and angle being right (nosegrind or overcrook to nose, nosegrind to tail, etc). For others, there’s a mechanic you need to get used to.
When you land in a grind or slide, you naturally pop out to the side you came from. However, if you double tap LT or RT, you can tell the game to pop out the appropriate direction instead. This makes things like 5-0 to bluntslide possible.
There is currently no way to pop completely straight
Things to note:
You must double tap the triggers while grinding, so after the truck or board has begun contact with the rail or ledge
You still have to pop after double tapping, the double tap only tells the game “go this way next time I pop”
double tapping the trigger to the direction you’d naturally pop anyway does nothing for you, it doesn’t make you go “more” that way or anything
Once you tell the game to pop the alternate direction, that becomes the new “default” direction until you land your trick. For example, my 5-0 to blunt kickflip out required a double tap of LT to bring the 5-0 inside to rotate into a blunt. Then I had to double tap RT to bring the pop direction back to the original because the initial LT tap set it to “left”
The rest is all just experimentation and labbing it out! Note: most of these are hard to learn, but incredibly satisfying. Don’t get too discouraged if you find yourself eating ♥♥♥♥ constantly while figuring it out.
