TRICKTIONARY

The online tricking resource covering tricks, transitions, stances, terminology, and tricking theory!

Tricks are broken down into 6 main categories based on flip axis. These categories are broken down into two sub categories of “flips” (under 360° rotation) and “twists” (360° or more). These are further sorted by the feet positioning that the tricks takeoff in.

PURPOSE

The sport and art of tricking has grown so much from it’s roots – we want to facilitate that growth and help educate the current and future generation of trickers. The format of this site might be a bit daunting to a new user, but it’s comprehensiveness is necessary; it reflects the diverse and complicated nature of tricking.

If you are new to tricking, check out our Comprehensive Beginner’s Guide to Tricking and our Top 10 Fundamental Tricks List.

Special shout out to Brian Skinner’s Trick Theory and Dan Perez’s Aeriformmat – the majority of the information and trick theory came from these websites.

NOTE

This is a constantly evolving project, please be patient with us if you encounter any issues, bugs, or broken links. The site is constantly being updated. So keep an eye out and keep coming back to see the new additions!

Also, tricking terminology is a melting pot of technical terms and silly nicknames. The terminology is constantly evolving and is still full of inconsistencies. 

TRANSITIONS

Transitions are simply how you step from one trick to another. Mastery of transitions is essential to spicing up your individual style and complexity of combos. “Transition” is sometimes used to refer to setup moves which help build momentum (ie. cartwheel, touchdown raiz, scoot), but these are not the transitions we are talking about here – those are tricks in and of themselves.
