Grind moves are a key element in combos and tricks in Tony Hawk Proskater 1 + 2 remake. For some reason the grind moves are not listed in the trick menu for characters. This could be because they are not changeable (except special grinds), but it would be nice to be displayed. So we have made a list of grind tricks to assist in mad combos, along with a few tips to have a grinding guide.

Advanced Grinding Tricks
Boardslide/Lipslide: Besides using the basic moves to grind, you can also change up the grind depending on how you land, and which way you are facing. for instance, landing on the side will cause a no directional button to be a Boardslide/Lipslide instead of a 50-50.
FS/BS: Each basic grind is also front side (FS) or back side (BS), once again, depending how you are turned when you land it.
So, even with a basic grind, you can create many different versions such as a FS 50-50, BS 50-50, FS Boardslide, BS Boardslide. All of this with only pushing triangle… and turning/spinning.
Double Tap: Also, you can go into other basic combos without leaving the grind. No jumping required! Simply double tap any of the three trick buttons to switch. Square square: switch to Smith. Circle circle: switch to Crooked. Triangle triangle: switch to 50-50.
