A city-based expert has revealed the best trick tricks in Mumbai, India.
Shanmugam Sharma, a former professional skateboarder, was inspired to look into the tricks of the city after seeing some of the tricks used in his local gym and asked his wife, Sanjana, to help him.
They decided to set up a Google Map to share their discoveries.
“The idea was to see if there was an easy way to find these tricks,” said Sanjanna Sharma, Sanjeev’s wife.
“I was surprised that the number of tricks in one area was not that high.
So I went and got a GPS and went and found the best spots for the most tricks,” she said.
Sanjeev, a student of Mumbai University, started doing the trick counting after finding out that many of his friends have done it and that the trick-taking skills were not as good as he had imagined.
“The trick counting got a lot easier when I started taking photos,” said the 29-year-old.
Sanjana Sharma and Sanjeevi started sharing their tips for the best skateboard trick on social media.
They started getting thousands of views and counting the number and locations of the trick, which was not very easy.
“When I started doing it, I was surprised how many people were watching me, and the people who were watching liked me for it,” said Sharma.
“They told me they thought it was really cool and liked the idea of a trick.
I thought that was a good sign that I should keep it going,” said he.
Sharma said it was hard for him to find a trick to share with his friends, so he started sharing his tricks on Instagram, and also shared them on Facebook.
“When I found the trick with 5,000 likes and counting, I thought it would be a good time to start sharing on Twitter,” he said.
Sanjeeva said she was inspired by Sharma’s video and decided to share the tricks on her Instagram account, as she was looking for a way to spread the word about her work.
“It was amazing to see how many tricks people loved the video and wanted to share them.
It was like seeing the love in people’s eyes,” said Shanti Sharma, another of Sanjeevas tricks.
Sanjay Sharma’s tricks have gone viral.
He started doing them in 2011.
“We found out a trick that was really good and people liked it and we shared it with everyone,” he told The Times.
“I also found a trick which was just very basic and people could do it without any knowledge.
I started to share this trick on my Facebook account,” he added.
Sanjaniya Sharma, who lives in a small town in Karnataka, said that she has shared a few tricks on social networks to show the world that people are interested in their tricks.
“There is a lot of passion among the skateboarders here and I think this is something that people would appreciate if they saw a skateboard in a skate park,” she told The Hindu.
