E-Squeaks are one of the newer scuffing tricks. You should have some of the other scuffing tricks dialed in, such as funky chickens, and freak squeaks before moving on to this trick. This trick is almost as easy to ride into as it is to learn, and riding out can be very difficult but once you get it you are okay.
This trick is used ALL of the time by amateurs to pros to combine and link some of the best tricks around. The way described above is CROSS footed (opposite foot) and the normal way you would have your left foot on the left front peg and your right foot would be scuffing. (see different videos)
It is possible to link some of the HARDEST tricks into and out of e-squeaks (backpackers for example). It is also possible to do them switch and regular footed, on both sides of the bike, with the handlebars both forward and backward, you can learn them without brakes, and even learn them one handed or even NO handed (but don't let Jesse Puente see you do this!). They are a fun, very linkable trick that should eventually be added to every flatlander's repertoire.
FAQ: What the heck is scuffing?
A: Scuffing is the process of shuffling your foot along either the front or the back tire while the other tire is off of the ground to control the bike. You push forward with your foot to keep the bike rolling forward, then you draw your foot backwards up the tire to keep the bike from falling backwards. In a nutshell you are typically falling backward (right after a push) or you are falling forward (while drawing your foot back). You scuff zillions of tricks including freak squeaks, dump trucks, e-squeaks, elephant glides, and gerators.
