This trick is similar to a Funky Chicken and is one of the most combinable tricks in existence. For lovers of front wheel tricks the Elephant Glide is used over and over again as the setup point for bar flips, bar hops, and other crazy combos. This trick is the most widely used way to do a backpacker and there are regular variations of it that are pretty cool.

It is important that you know how to Scuff before you try this trick. It can't hurt to know Funky Chickens, or any other scuffing tricks (Dump Trucks, Gerators, E-Squeaks).

This is all stupid to explain though. It is (in my opinion) not NEARLY the easiest way to ride out of the trick. This IS the standard way to do it though and can be learned on its own. The bike control that is gained is very important. Elephant Glides will become a staple in your repertoire of tricks especially if you decide that you prefer doing tricks on the front wheel. This trick is simply amazing when you consider all the different ways in and out of it. Good luck!
