Layback Rollout - Empire Park Skate Park by 


Layback Rollout – Empire Park Skate Park

A local skateboarder called “Mouse” performs a skate trick called a Layback Rollout in the shallow end of the Bowl at Empire Park Skate Park.

The trick is performed by approaching the top of the ramp with enough speed to do a frontside grind or 5-0 and crouching down as you begin to grind, leaning back onto your back hand that has been placed either on the platform or the coping (which works best and helps you to more consistently “make it”). If you are going really fast, you can push on your hand once or twice to extend the length of the grind, by sliding your hand along the coping as you travel along it. As you near the end of the grind, your weight being out over the transition helps to turn the board so the tail locks into the coping and you drop back into the ramp, letting go of the coping or platform as you flow back into the transition and ride away.

A British Heavy Metal band called The Cult has been popular with a lot of Skateboarders for over 20 years (especially me!). They write awesome songs, the lead Singer Ian Astbury has a powerful, cool voice and they play loud and intense music. Intelligent, very well crafted Rock and Roll……

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    magnificent capture

  • LOL! I really appreciate your comment but it’s funny in the context of skate culture to call a trick or skate image magnificent. :)) I’m a bit too old to start calling everything “so sick!” but I can still call something rad now and again.

    another beauty captured James! :)

  • Thanks Karin! :-)) Doesn’t it look like a layback re-entry or a layback cutback? It sure feels the same when you do one, too – minus any water.
