You should work on this part of the process as you learn to push and to stop. They all work together. Remember that you are building muscle memory and developing balance that you will be using continuously as you progress in skating. Small acorns produce mighty oaks.

You should have your trucks adjusted so that the board leans when you apply pressure to one side or the other. Having a wrench to fit the kingpin nut (9/16 inch or 14mm) on hand so you can adjust the truck tightness to your liking.

Applying pressure to the heel side will make you turn left (regular foot). We call this turning frontside because the front of your body faces the direction you are turning. Applying pressure to the toe side will make you turn right. We call this turning backside.

Don’t forget to lean into your turns. Skateboarders call rolling and turning in this way carving, and it’s a lot of fun on its own.

You won’t find many videos of street or park skaters doing this, because it is just a fundamental in our skate style.

The kick turn is a more advanced way to turn. Lifting your front truck into a wheelie, pivot left or right. This very basic video shows someone putting everything togerther.
