can't really see your back foot, but the best thing to do IMO is..


put all of your weight on your souling foot. always easiahhhh.

Well for one, that's a nasty step you're trying it on. Try the second step, much smoother.

Second, try standing up a bit. Keep those knees bent. It looks like you're falling forward there...not fun when you're trying to grind, eh.

Last, try getting that back leg closer in. You're throwing your left knee out to the side (probably for balance), and that makes it harder to turn your skate to get the outside edge down on the ledge.

well, i noticed if i put my back foot farther back, it goes straight to the side...but the closer i put it with the souling foot, the worse it is...and what u want me to put my knees inside or behind my other knee?

Yeah, I agree with irishboy, the best way to get into a pornstar, is to do a makio a couple times, get used to having all of your weight on the souling foot, then throw that back foot up there. If you dont get it, most of your weight should be on the souling foot, so you should be ok anyways. That's how I did it anyways. Just got used to doing a makio, then a soul grind, acid, mizou, and pornstar just kinda started happening easier.
