Jackson Bogaerts performs a trick called a “Boneless One” on the small quarter pipe at Empire Park Skate Park in Newcastle, New South Wales.
A “Boneless One” or “Boneless” is named as such because the skater stretches out their legs (while doing the trick) in a way that looks unnatural and it seems like they have no bones. To do the trick, you grab the board around the middle (or a little bit in front of the middle) on the “toe side” of the board while at the same time taking off your front foot and planting it on the ground – pushing down hard and then jumping or “boosting” into the air, while holding onto your board really tightly and pulling up on your board pretty hard. While in the air, turn your head and shoulders in the direction you want to go and start to put your front foot back onto the skateboard. Look carefully at the place you want to land and bend your knees a little bit to absorb the impact of landing back on the ground. When you feel you’ve landed safely you can slowly start to adopt a fully upright (normal) stance and ride away to do your next trick.
