My name is Aaron Kyro. I’m a sponsored skateboarder From the San Francisco Bay Area. And today I’m going to teach you How to kickflip. Before you start learning how to do this trick You should be really comfortable just riding
your board around And you should also have your ollies down
well. Because it is part of it And it is going to help you out a lot to learn
this trick. The first thing you have to get down is your
foot placement. Your front foot is at a 45 degree angle just
down from those bolts. And your backfoot is perched on the tail With the ball of your foot ready to pop it. Now the first thing you’re going to do Is you’re going to bend your front knee, Lifting the front of the board up And you’re going to put pressure down on your
back foot. This is the thing that’s going to pop And give you your lift on the board. The second part is sliding that front foot
off. You can see where the white marks are On my board from the shoes. Also pay attention to which part of your shoe
actually flips the board. Notice how my knee and how my foot turns as
I slide my foot up. This is very important. This is what’s going to give you the flip And what’s going to turn your board. Now that you know how to flip the board, As soon as it’s flipped, you catch it with
your back foot, Right at the back truck and put both feet
down. It’s super simple. There is actually only a couple steps. The main thing you really need to get down Is that flick of the front foot. It’s very important that you learn to flip
it up. A lot of people think you’re going to flip
it down to flip the board, But it’s not true. Look at how my front foot goes up off of the
board. This is what causes your board to flip, So you catch it and keep your feet above the
board. As soon as you see it flip around, Put that back foot down, catch your board And then just drop your legs and land. It’s an easy trick. You’ll get it down. Just practice a lot And before you know it, you’ll have it to
a point Where you can do it whenever you want. In to, out of tricks, in the middle of manuals
or wherever. If you need any help with this trick, Go to and let me
know. Don’t forget to subscribe for future videos.


I been practicing for a month and I can’t get it down, how come I can never get my back foot on the board. That’s the only problem i have

Thanks Aaron Kyro, a sponsored skateboarder from the San Fransisco Bay Area. I can now successfully land a kickflip from this video👏🏻

I remember in my skateboarding "prime" I never landed a kickflip in a satisfying way, but after coming back to the craft from a long hiatus, I landed one first try. To me, the kickflip was the first trick that was really a mental battle. I had to be confident enough to attempt to land it knowing that i could possibly slip out and hurt myself, and when I came back to skateboarding after taking that break, I had more confidence in myself as a person and was just able to do it more effectively. It took me almost 4 years to finally land one and feel good about it.

Is it just me who skates with their left leg forward first 😂 I see all these videos and it’s back to front for me

Guys help me I am still trying to and a kickflip it’s been 4 years of footolanting with my front foot

Hello I'm from rasha Yours vidio is a very crazy and Carlos is superman, sorry my English is very bad, I like skating thank you ,inspirens me

I been practicing my ollies for about a month now…everyday…i ride my board for 2 hours everyday or so…However, i don't think they are good enough for a kickflip.

Never felt so easy to me back in the day… We were kids back then and I skateboarded a lot casually but I never really learned the kickflip until I practiced it specifically for a couple weeks… Easy trick he says… perhaps if skatebooarding is your life then yeah :p

People who are saying you’ve been practicing for over a year. There’s no reason that it should take that long, you are most likely taking that long because you don’t skate enough. You don’t even have to try kickflips when you skate. You just need to skate more often.

No bs 6 years guys I kno , but this actually worked the simple turn of my knee wile flickn , just that little change put the rest in motion I’m landing slow rolling KFs not every single attempt but more then none if your dead ass serious and actually practice this channel can be super useful

I watch this 8 years ago and i watch this again today sadly to say that i didn't have any skateboard in 8 years.

You may not have heard of me but im the best skater in Queensland brisbane but i need to learn my kick flip better thanks

It’s wired how I can land an Ollie and also do a good training kick flip with my high top vans but then when I wear my low top vans I can’t even skateboard lol

ive been doing kick flips for years, the problem i have is i tap my ankles kinda together when i flip it and i hate the look of it so i have to change my way of kick flipping.
