Whenever I go skate with my friends, (well, Seth mainly) we end up doing stupid challenges like 'The Puleo challenge' (another story entirely). I guess sometimes you just want to try something stupid to break up the monotony of not landing any tricks you could have sworn you knew how to do once...

Anyway, the other day, my friend Milo reminded me of this trick I learned in Southsea in like 1990 or something that I'd completely forgotten about. So, I'm calling this silly trick 'The Descent'. Basically it's kind of a lazy nosebonk where you bonk your front wheels off the second step then try to catch your board and clear the remaining stairs. I found that it helps if you have the 411VM intro music in your head ;)

Watch the vid and give it a try. If you get brave and manage to make it down more than the three stairs I managed, send me a video. The person that does this trick CLEAN down the most stairs by the end of August will win a Descent deck.

Don't break yourself off though, this is just something dumb I thought up for the summer holidays. Cheers, Chris.
