Proper ballerina-like form is the only way to really do this trick. The right weight distribution, angle of approach, speed and leanback allows this seemingly impossible trick to magically go. Ben Grant did a bunch of them while filming for Big Trouble in Little Vegas, a Greenville NC skateboarding film.
