Heelflip with toe of shoe
« on: August 20, 2018, 08:00:37 AM »
Hey all, new here. I've always done my heelflips with the toe of my shoe, rather than the actual heel of my foot.  I end up getting wear around the pinky toe spot on my front shoe from them.

Anyone have any idea what these are called, or if its a horrible habit and I should re-learn to do them with my actual heel of my shoe.

Thanks!

I think you just have yourself a little bit of a weirdheelflip.  I think everyone does them a bit differently.

Its the direction of a heelflip though, just using the same part of your shoe as you would with a kickflip.

I used to skate with this kid who did heel flips in kickflip position. He would pop and kick the board with his toe like one would kick a foot ball and they worked, strangest damn thing... you’re not alone

Haha I do this. Was actually trying to relearn them last night the proper way. I think if you square your foot up and do the same action you end up flicking with your heel?

My friend heelflips with a proper kickflip foot position and his shoes get the typical heelflip scuffs.

I've tried that before and usaully end up giving up after a few minutes.  I've been doing it this way for so long my flick is pretty consistent every time so I doing it the "proper" way frustrates me haha.

whatever works for you, sounds uncomfortable tho. i've seen heelflips done this way. also saw a video of a dude doing this and kickflip with his heel. think that was just to prove it could be done.

I think heelflips look much better when done with the toe. Plus there's more control in the flick.

I point the toe of my front foot slightly toward the back when setting up for a heel.

i hang my toes of a little bit and flick with the ball of my foot.. not my heel. i think that's pretty normal? you actually flick with ur toe? that's weird but i guess it works for you! i'm curious to see what it looks like

i could film what they are talking about its kinda like when beginners kickflip down instead of out.

for my nollieheel i put my toes lined up with the edge of the board and use the ball of my foot to force the board forward and down as opposed to accross and out like a normal heelflip.
I can see why people think Slap is a bunch of retards; multiple people think Menikmati is the worst skate video of all time?

is it that hard to imagine? on a standard heelflip your front foot toes will be pointed slightly up as your foot leaves the board. for ball-of-foot heelflip toes are pointed down the whole time.

another way to explain it is to get into primo you can rotate the board heelflip direction by using the balls of you feet. its the same thing but with popping

OP is talking about pinky wear from doing heelflips so i think he is talking about something different than the people using the ball of their foot against the concave

I might have to step up if nobody else will do it.. I guarantee it will look shit. Where can I upload the video so that I don't have to open an account?

I grew up around a dude who did the weird toe heel flip, but had that shit amazing. Totally perfect. Another strange thing I thought was that, that same dude had nollie tres perfect. But almost no other flat ground tricks..

do you have instagram? put it on that.

i still can't picture anyone flipping a heelflip without using the heel of their foot to kick the board around.
