HOW TO KICKFLIP
There is a lot of hype surrounding the
kickflip and it is probably the most popular trick in skating today. The
kickflip is a lot easier than many think. A KICKFLIP IS VERY, VERY SIMILAR
TO AN OLLIE. Stand on the board as you would for an ollie, but have your
front foot slightly more on the edge of the board.
Start the kickflip just as you
would an ollie and drag the front foot straight up the board from it's
starting position. (Just by doing this the board should flip in the air)
When your foot reaches the kick drag it off the edge off the board to
allow the deck to rotate freely. Once the deck has flipped over once, use
your back foot to catch the deck. From here the front foot should be
stomped back onto the deck, evening out your weight between both feet. Hit
the ground and roll away! Catch the sequence above to get the idea.
