Backside 180. The line between hill and embankment can be a blurred one at times. For skating, the general rule of thumb is if you can roll up the surface from the bottom with significant speed, pop a kickflip and you're speed is not lost when you roll to fakie, then it's a bank. Anything with a lesser grade than that and you should probably start popping tricks in from the top—hill style—like Nick Garcia is doing here. (Photo: Ben Karpinski)
