Bailed trick

A bailed combo.

To bail a trick when playing a skateboarding game, or even when skateboarding in real life, is to fail, or stack a trick.

Bailing is usually caused by mistiming a grind, manual, liptrick or mistiming how to land the trick. Bailing in-game can also be caused by attempting to enter an out of bounds area.

The punishment for bailing a trick on the Tony Hawk game series is to have your special meter drained and your character lie on the floor for a few seconds.


A trick cancelled as a result of entering an out of bounds area.
