How to do an Hurricane Grind with Lennie Burmeister

A 180 degree turn into a backwards feeble grind, exiting via a little less than 180 degree return spin. This trick was invented on vert by Neil Blender in 1985; an early proto-version can by witnessed in Powell Peralta's second video, Future Primitive, during Blender's brief cameo appearance on Lance Mountain's backyard ramp. Many of today's pros also do it on street obstacles such as handrails and ledges. This trick is easier to perform backside, but Tony Hawk did introduce the rarer frontside version in 1989.

And guess what? It's never too late to learn something new. German street-skating pioneer and legend Lennie Burmeister learnt The Hurricane some 15 years after he first stepped onto a board, and it soon became one of his favourite tricks. Never stop learning, as they say.
Here, Lennie offers sage advice to any budding -- or advanced -- skaters, as he shows you how to do his beloved Hurricane in the latest Pro Tips video. Soak it all in, then get out there and give it a try.
