Skips are described as a simple vanish transition where a hop from one foot to the other occurs, and is understood to be the secondary form of the vanish. Simply put, if vanish is walking, then a skip is running. When performed properly, at no point in a skip will both feet touch the ground simultaneously. The beauty of the skip is its ability to create dynamic swingthrough and carrythrough-like motions without the usual landings associated with them. Because of this, skips can also be seen as a sequence of singular transitions, and have even been argued by some to be unique tricks themselves. This transition, when utilized properly, has the potential to be energetic and powerful, as well as to flexibly transition into tricks that are not normally possible from a particular landing, and can even be used to create an interesting change in rhythm during a combo.
