I skate, unfortunately I have been doing it less recently! I hardly think going manual is a trick! I would first get very comfortable skating, be able to keep up with everyone, and not fall off. Then start doing the basics like going down the curb, once you can do that ollieing is real simple! I used to be able to ollie a 4 stack of boards, and ofcourse that is stacking them side ways (not on top of each other!). When our boards got old, we used to take some gas around with us and used to tape doing things like kick flip 4 stairs with our boards on fire, pretty dumb looking back on it!
