instead of thinking "i want to get the back tire on ledge", think "i want to hop onto the ledge, but i want to grind my front peg". that usually works good for me, but it some times gets your weight too much on the ledge instead of in the grind.

Are you saying you're trying to Smith stall, or grind? They're a little different, but not much. If you're hitting your back wheel, it's just becuase you're use to Feebles and Doubles. Just tuck it a little more and set it down on the deck/ledge. Lean forward slightly more. For grinds, you are usually going a lot more straight onto the ledge, if it's coping then it's a little different. I find smith grinds on quarters harder than on say a ledge or box I can hit straight on.

I didn't help much did I :hihi:

a little angle, otherwise, you'll just smash into the ledge... maybe like 5 degrees
