I'm stuck!

Trying to complete PJ Ladd's challenge at the mansion and I can't get past it. You have to olly onto a bench and grind an FS 5-0 into a FS tail.

I've looked at the method for pulling off both of them but can't seem to nail it. Do I olly again and land into the FS tail once i've done the FS 5-0 or should it be all in one swift motion? Any tips greatly appreciated!

Probably a bit late seeing as you posted this a week ago but if you're still stuck this is what i did,

Position yourself one push away from the bench and set a session marker. Puch towards the bench and do your FS 5-0 then let yourself silde to a stop while still in the FS 5-0 and gently push the right stick way from the bench and you should go into an FS tail.
Just keep trying if it doesn't work right away..that challenge is a pain in the ass!

I had a little trouble with this one too. turns out i wasn't facing the right direction. I was doing a 5-0 instead of a frontside 5-0

yep. if you look up guides online, they'll let you know exactly which stance you should be in (switch or regular) for your skating style (goofy or regular) and often even detail which way you need to turn the stick.

this trick in particular doesn't feel intuitive even when you do finally pull it off. that being said, it's a relatively easy task in the end, which only requires of you to hit the grind on a particular side and slowly move the right stick to find the second one. wait until you get to the final challenge with dyrdek and big black. same scenario but a lot harder...
