No comply flip tips
« on: November 12, 2013, 09:39:56 AM »
anyone got any advice for no comply flips? ive got no complys up curbs and over parking blocks but i have no clue how to get the board to flip. is it just kind of a lucky fluke trick, or is there actually a technique to making it flip every time? any tips would be appreciated.

Put your toes in the toeside pocket of the tail (as apposed to heelside) and literally stand on your toe as you approach the obstacle. You are essentially attempting to pressure flip downward into the curb and this causes the board to bounce backward. It's a ricochet movement, the obstacle is the thing that flips the board. I remember when I first had someone explain this to me, it was a lightbulb moment, like it all finally made sense.

As for doing the 180 ones, you need to approach the obstacle at the slightest angle backside (as in backside grinding the bottom step), and when the board ricochets it will sort of spin frontside, and you pivot.

You're also going to want to take your back foot off before you hit the object. More specifically, you'll want to fling it a bit since your tail should hit the object instead of the wheels.
