Scooter Tricks: How to do a Straight Air

Getting air is one of the biggest things you should know how to do if you want to get good. Once you’re confident about nailing big air, you’ll be able to do so many more tricks and bring so much more style to your game. And let’s not forget all the possibilities for combos. 

Of course, getting air for the first time can be a little intimidating. We like to think, though, that once you get over the hump of trying it for the first time, you immediately get hooked on it. Once you get a taste of sweet air, you’ll soon want the whole pie. Mmm... pie.

Luckily for you, catching air only involves a few easy steps. 

    1. Build up speed. We could go into the science of this, but we’d rather not. So just take our word when we say that the more speed you get leading up to your jump, the higher you’ll be able to launch.
  • Spot your landing. Before you catch air, make sure you have an idea of where you plan on landing. Otherwise, things could get ugly.
  • Send it! Off you go. Told you it’d be worth it.
