How to Rock n Roll Boardslide with Steve Caballero

How to do a Rock n Roll Boardslide with Steve Caballero

Caballero started skating in 1976 at the age of 12. He was sponsored as an amateur by Powell Peralta in 1978 at the age of 15. He turned pro in 1980 at the Oasis Skatepark, Southern California during the Gold Cup series. He is a member of the Bones Brigade, and has appeared in many of their videos, including The Search For Animal Chin. His current sponsors include Powell Peralta Skateboards, Bones Bearings, Independent Truck Company, Autobahn Wheels, Vans Skate Shoes, Skull Candy headphones, Ohana Boardshop and Protec Helmets. His past sponsors included Tracker Trucks, Standard Trucks, Bones Wheels, and Red Dragon Apparel. Caballero has been featured on the cover of Thrasher Magazine and several other publications. Steve was also a character in five of the Tony Hawk games, from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 to Tony Hawk's Underground, and as a downloadable skater in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD.

He invented the Caballerial around 1980 in the 10 ft. keyhole pool at Winchester Skatepark in Campbell, California, as well as the frontside rock n' roll slide (now commonly referred to as a frontside board slide).

The Rock and Roll Boardslide is a quick, common and easy lip trick performed mostly to link tricks together on mini ramps. The front truck is placed over the lip of the ramp and then the board is "rocked" slightly before coming back down. The frontside variation is much harder and is considered one of the most stylish lip tricks.

The Rock and Roll Boardslide is a Rock and Roll plus a slide on the lip (or the coping).
