NBA 2K23: How to Use the Skateboard and Grind in The City


Similar to NBA 2K22, players can skate around town instead of just using their feet. And the Skateboard is not only an easier way to get around The City, but it’s also required for a confirmation quest that must be completed in order to get on the cover of Sports Illustrated Kids. So, how can you use the skateboard while grinding some rails? Let’s go through what you need to know.

How to use the skateboard in NBA 2K23

How to grind rails in The City in NBA 2K23

Before you learn how to grind rails, you must first know how to do an ollie. Press A (for Xbox) or X (for PlayStation) to make an ollie on the skateboard.

Now you need to find rails. Tracks are fairly easy to find in The City, and a good place to find them is in The City Mall. Here’s a look at where this is located:

Find a rail, and then line up the nose of the skateboard with the rail. You don’t want to line up parallel or perpendicular. Align yourself diagonally, then press A/X to start grinding.

Once you’ve done that, your NBA 2K23 MyPlayer will grind the rails automatically. The grind ends as soon as the avatar leaves the rails, so no further action is required on your part.
