If any of you guys skateboard, or have watched the X Games, you'll know that you have to position your feet in a certain way to do tricks. In this series, if you look closely, they keep their feet dead in the center, which makes it impossible to do tricks. This alway irked me about this series, but once I got past this fact, I enjoyed it.

Yeah, they do have a lot of "fake moves". I still think it's entertaining to watch though.

I haven't noticed that, but I found all the tricks to be a bit...unrealistic, especially for a bunch of ten year olds.

Yeah, I agree. But I still love the show.

I know. They're 10-year olds doing tricks professionals can not do.

LOL. They all do that. I remember when Twister went flying off the ramp into a trash can, and he didn't get hurt at all. :}

Yeah, you should submit these into the episodes' guide. Also, remember when Twister accidentally falls into the cement for the new skate ramp, and he doesn't wipe off the cement or anything. I would have dried and been permanent! ^o^

I don't think 10 year olds could be that good, especially without moving their feet.

It's like, "Hey look! I can do a kickflip without putting my foot on the edge of the board!".

I can barely do a kickflip and they can do all that stuff? Yeah...^o)

Didn't know you skateboarded. I do, too. I've been skating since I was in the second grade (although I didn't get good at it until a year later). Well, I don't want to go too off-topic.

Moving back on-topic...

In RP, they don't just do "fake" skateboard moves, they also do "fake" bike moves, surfing moves, ect.
