How to do a Skateboard Kickflip : Foot Positioning For a Skateboard Kickflip


Hi my name is Evan Blakenship with expertvillage.com
and I’m going to be teaching you how to kickflip. Alright so want to learn how to kickflip first
of all you need to learn how to ollie which is like this, so once you have that down your
ready to start learning kickflips. Now the foot placements for a kickflip is pretty similar
to an ollie, you have your back foot on the tail and the front foot right below the bolts
slightly at an angle. What your going to do pop it just like an ollie and when you slide
your foot up you go off the edge and you flick right about there where the concave is. And
this will pop the board in the air send it flipping and what you want to do is want to
catch it and land on the bolts.

@loganmcafeetv What size board do you have ?? Because I started with a 7.5 and could never land on the board, but once I got an 8, I could land it. Hope that helps

@ROFLOLTV go do it down a gap at 15 mph and try to have your feet in any position but the correct position then come post here. =)
