Heelflip

17738 riders can do it
You spin your board with your front foot heel while doing Ollie. It spins opposite side to Kickflip.
How do it
This trick is a variation on the kickflip, the difference being that your leading leg kicks the board with a forward heel motion, which makes it rotate underneath the rider, spinning in the direction opposite that of a kickflip.
1.
Place your rear foot on the tail, and have your front leg near the truck bolts, with the toes overhanging slightly.
2.
Bend your knees and crouch down. At the same time snap the tail with your rear leg and have your front leg lead out and kick (hit) the outer face of the board with the heel, thus making it rotate.
3.
The board is now spinning underneath (the speed will seem high at first, but once you get used to it you will learn to follow and sense the board). Catch the board with both feet and land.

I've landed 3 or 4 heelflips. I would've landed a bunch more, but i can't get the board to spin fast. Any tips on spinning the board faster?
