Much like Bigfoot, Chupacabra, and the Loch Ness monster there has been a lot of speculation around the office about whether or not this trick is real - or if it is a product of some careful video manipulation. (Yes, we often talk about very important, relevant things around the office... what?) Is this legit, or is it just a couple of guys in the woods with a camera and a gorilla costume? ...I mean skateboard. What do you think?

Trickipedia is not a Trick Tips section, but that doesn't mean you're not going to learn. Trickipedia is the general education page for skateboarding tricks started by the Berrics so that future generations understand the difference between frontside and backside and that there is no such thing as switch nollie half cabs. Each week one of Skateboarding's best will help fill Trickipedia's pages until it is the most comprehensive reference work on the planet. This week Oscar Meza adds Kickflip Crooked Grinds to the mix. If you have any suggestions of who you would like to see do certain tricks in the future feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Theotis is one of my favorite people to film and hang out with in skateboarding. He always had a great attitude and “thanked” me for filming his tricks after landing them, which I thought was funny because he was the one doing the hard part. I think that I got more hugs from him while working on his TWS part than I did from my wife that year. -Chris Ray
