Georgia Groen: My Favorite Barefoot Trick

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

I learnt my first ever front to back when I was 13 years old. I liked the front-to-back because it was the start of a whole new range of tricks, such as multiples and one foot turns.

It took me a long time to make my first front-to-back, but I remember it very vividly. One day I was skiing with my brother,Tyler and practicing the trick.  I was taking a lot of falls, but it was about my 7th try when I actually made it. It wasn’t the prettiest turn, but I still did it and from that day on, the trick became natural.

To me, accomplishing my first ever front-to-back was a huge milestone in my barefooting career. It lead me to getting high scores and world records. The key to a front-to-back is confidence; once you believe in yourself–believe that you can do them– they become simple.  I hope everyone enjoys the front to back as much as me. =)
