Grinds______________________________________________________
Front slide

Royal
Like the front side except turn your ankles away from the direction in which you are going. Make it so somebody watching you from in front of you can see the bottoms of your feet.
Backslide
Jump on grinding surface backwards (as opposed to forwards, because that would be a front side) and land on it with your feet about shoulder width apart.
Farfegnugen
Like the royal except turn your ankles towards the direction in which you are going. Make it so somebody watching you from in front of you can see the tops of your feet.
UFO
Like the Front side, except you turn your front foot's ankle away from the direction in which you are going and turn your back foot's ankle towards the direction in which you are going. In other words, turn your feet away from each other.
