How-To do a Tail Block Saran Wrap With Adrian Mallory

Very popular in the 70's the Tail Block (also called Tail Tap at that time) fell in desuetude for almost 30 years. At that time, it was one of the most difficult tricks ever realized in pools, especially since it is done on the lip of the pool (the coping). That was before the invention of the aerials and later the Ollies, of course. It was one of the favorite tricks of Tony Alva or jay Adams… With the new upspring in bowl and park riding, this trick has been reborn and is now enjoying a second life. Usually done backside, a tailblock (Tail Block / Tail tap) is a Losi or Salad Grind done while grabbing the nose with your front hand.

The Tail Block Saran Wrap is a variant trick done frontside with a leg twist and a hand change. Confused? Take a look at the video instead…
