First and foremost, the River Glides and the River Rapids were the first two products to be released by River Wheel Co just a few short years ago. Ever since their initial release, the entire freestyle scooter community has been hooked on both the company and their wheels. The River Glides come in a cool blue on blue colorway and are as smooth as the are fast. They are essentially the ultimate skate park cruising wheels, while the River Rapids come in a bright orange colorway and are a little bit more durable and heavy duty, which makes them ideal for street riding. Both of these wheels are currently available at Pro Scooter Shop! The River Glides are currently available for $79.99 per pair, while the River Rapids are $43.99 per wheel!

Aside from the phenomenal River Glides and River Rapids, River Wheel Co also has an entire signature collection of products for you to consider before making your next scooter wheel purchase.

Intermediate-Level Tricks | Pro Scooter Shop

In our Pro Scooter Shop "Basic Tricks" article that we posted a while ago, we broke down the fundamentals of some of the more simple scooter tricks, which laid the groundwork for learning some more advanced tricks down the road. Well... now we are here to introduce some of those more advanced, intermediate level tricks that you guys have most likely been yearning to learn how to do. However, before we get too far ahead of ourselves, it is important to keep in mind that these tricks are much more difficult than the more basic scooter tricks that you have probably attempted to learn in the past. They require both patience and practice, but if you are determined enough than you should be able to learn them all with ease.

The first intermediate-level trick that we are going to discuss is the infamous double tail whip. The double tail whip is an interesting trick because there is quite a mental block that you need to overcome before you can learn how to do it. The concept of having a rather thick piece of metal spinning rapidly under your feet multiple times can be frightening, especially when you are first attempting double tail whips. However, once you overcome that, you will quickly begin to realize that all the double tail whip really requires is a little bit harder of a kicking of the feet and an extra flick of the wrist in order to get the second tail whip around and then you will have it down. Just remember to jump high, kick hard and keep rotating those wrists until the second tail whip rotates all the way around, and then spot the deck and land the trick.

The second intermediate level trick that we are going to discuss is the 180 bar spin. Once you have mastered the art of both bar spinning and 180ing then it is time to combine those two into one fluid motion. 180 bar spins can be tricky simply because of that fact that you are spinning your entire body and changing direction completely, while still having to figure out some way to throw a bar spin in there somewhere. Multi-tasking can be difficult, especially when in mid-air, but the secret to learning how to do these guys well is not to think about the 180. Initiate your spin when you take off, but once you are in the air, it is important to direct all of your focus towards the bar spin because the rotation of the 180 will take care of itself. Once you complete your bar spin, you will land back on the ground in fakie, and from there, all that is left to do is half cab.

Hopefully these Pro Scooter Shop trick tips were at least somewhat helpful. Make sure to stay tuned right here at Pro Scooter Shop for more intermediate level trick tips and break downs, as well as, some more advanced ones too.
