Brian Wainwright
Side Stance
: I just visited Brian Wainwright website for the first time and I am very excited. This guy is amazing. I am very curious about the side stance. Do you guys ride side stance? I ride parellel and would have never thought it possible to ride like that but I do see the advantages. I started trying to ride side stance on flat ground and am starting to be comfortable going frontside and turning but the thought of taking it into the ramp scares me. My final question is on a different subject: What kind of trucks do you use? Rollerskate or skateboard? I cant decide which to use. With the narrow rollerskate trucks I can roll on the coping of a ramp but with skateboard trucks I could grind....

thanks for your interest... and kind words. How is the side stance coming? Can you generate speed riding in side stance yet? When rollerskating was huge in California back in the late '70's and into the '80's most of the guys rode side stance, being a skateboarder already, it made sense to me too, so I just figured it out. The frontside and backside benifits are worthy of the time it takes to get it going. Grinding is great!! Carve grinding is awesome!!! Tracker still makes their freestyle trucks... both the Mid-Track and the Full-Track are still available. Check them out at
I have some short video's available if you would like to see the side stance put to use. Just drop me an email and we will work it out. roll on Brian
