    Something I found out yesterday thats pretty cool.

    If you are on your hoverboard and a manta is coming at you, jump right before it hits you and you take no damage. im not sure if you have to be at the top of your jump or not, but I think so.

    I want to say this effect is from the bottom of the hoverboard hitting the top of the manta, but its kinda hard to test it online when the other guy wants to kill you

    if you time it right you will bounce off of the manta, it will be knocked away, and you will take no damage.

    giving you time to dismount and take it out with an avril(if you have one..i always carry one if i can for the manta whores)

    TIA
    Impact Jump hover. You need to do it pretty **** fast though, so hold down mouse1 then release and hit jump at the same time to do a normal impact jump. Then hit q almost immediately to equip the board. The easiest way to practice is to break it down to components, so practice the impact jump and hover-jump bug separately then try to combine them.

    Another way to explain the spin would be: hold Crouch, then hold left or right, then release Crouch

    Also when you crouch you keep going forward, without holding W

    And to add to the list, like Entropy said, the RMB (he said LMB, but it's RMB with me) will make your camera rotate around you

    EDIT: Apparently you can combine the tricks. You can hold your hoverboard while spinning.
    Hold crouch, hold left or right, release crouch and immediately click LMB or RMB.
    Will amend the firstpost with the rotate cam info. Also I did the small written guide as separate commands which can be combined, watching the first video I did gives a better understanding of trick combinations.
