There's always something new to learn and practice. Whether you're looking to impress your friends or simply challenge yourself, these tricks are sure to add some excitement to your Onewheeling adventures. So, let's dive in and explore the world of Onewheeling tricks!

"Riding Switch"

Riding switch in Onewheel refers to riding the board with the opposite foot forward than usual. In other words, if you typically ride with your left foot forward, riding switch would mean riding with your right foot forward. Riding switch can be challenging at first, as it requires using muscles and movements that you may not be used to. However, it can be a useful skill to develop as it allows you to ride in both directions and can improve your overall balance and control on the board, which is the first stepping stone to learning a majority of Onewheel tricks.

"Curb Nudge"

A "curb nudge" is a useful Onewheeling technique where you use the edge of your board to nudge up and over a curb. To perform a curb nudge, you approach the curb slowly and angle the front footpad up and towards the curb while keeping the back footpad level. This will cause the edge of your board to make contact with the curb, and with a little momentum and de-weighting, you can pop your board up and over the curb. Curb nudges take practice to master, but they're a great way to expand your Onewheeling skills and make your ride smoother and more efficient.


"Bonking" refers to a trick where you jump with your Onewheel and hit an object (such as a pocket rock, branch, or curb) with the underside of your board, then land back on the board. It's a fun and challenging trick that requires good timing, balance, and control. To perform a bonk, you first approach the object you want to hit at a slow speed. Then, as you reach the object, you pop the front of your board up. de-weight your back foot, and hit the wheel against the object, using the momentum to launch yourself up into the air. Once you're in the air, you tuck your knees up and prepare to land back on the board. Bonking can be a bit tricky to master, as it requires good timing and coordination. It's important to start slow and practice on smaller objects before attempting bigger ones.

"Curb Slide, aka 'Slippies'"

A "curb slide" in Onewheel riding is a maneuver where the rider approaches a curb and slides their board across - just like a grind in skateboarding.  This can be done while riding at a slow or moderate speed, with the help of waxing the actual street curb, or using a trick curb, which is used specifically for this trick. It does take some time to master, but it is well worth it!  It's important to note that performing curb slides can cause damage to the board over time, so it's recommended to use caution, add some protective accessories such as Float Plates or B.A.N.G Bumpers.

"Body Varials"

A "body varial" involves jumping up from your board and spinning 180 degrees and landing on your board in the opposite foot placements. For example, starting off in your regular stance, and then jumping up and spinning 180 degrees and landing in your switch stance, or vice versa. This simple trick can look pretty impressive to most.
