The position of your feet is somehow like a mizou: Your front foot is in soul position, and your back foot is grinding on the outside boot or frame.

Once you've got it, there is not much to it. The hardest part of the trick is landing it – once you've locked in, it isn't a big problem to do the whole obstacle. You have to concentrate on having all your weight on your souling foot.

The typical beginner mistake is that the skater can't judge exactly how high up the obstacle is, or is concentrating too much on the soul foot – putting all the weight on the soul foot, and therefore having the soul foot lower than the trailing foot when landing. – The typical thing that goes wrong with this trick is the soul foot being too low when trying to land the trick. Solution: Jump higher!

When grinding downhill on curbs and ledges, you need to have your soul foot longer up the obstacle than your head is. You also need to lean backwards.

The pornstar is good for doing long curb grinds, since some find it easy to use the trailing back foot to balance the grind. The back trailing foot enables the skater to lean more into the curb.

When it's a topside pornstar, some people call it a 'Sunny Day', and when it's a alleyoop topside pornstar, some people call it a 'Cloudy Night'.
