Kickflip
Beginner
·
26605 riders can do it
You flip your skateboard 360 degrees along the axis that extends from the nose to the tail of the deck.
How do it
This trick is a variation on the ollie, only your front leg kicks the board, making it spin under your legs.
1.
Place your rear leg on the tail, and your front leg next to the truck bolts, a bit closer to the center and at a slight angle — anywhere between 20-45 degrees (placing your front leg like this would be an easier way to learn the trick, but training with the back leg will allow you to perform the trick from any leg position).
2.
Bend your knees and crouch. At the same time snap the tail with your rear leg and have your front leg lead out and kick (hit) the nose of the board with your toe.
3.
The board is now spinning under you (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 legs. Land.

I can't seem to get the flick down. Like my board won't fully rotate. Also my board flies out in front of me.
