i think heelflips can be done in so many different ways. my way is front foot perfectly perpendicular, just behind bolts,  with toes hanging off so that my heel is flush with the backside edge of the board. back foot slightly towards the backside pocket of the tail. most weight distributed over front foot is the key part that prevents the classic rocket heelflip action. then it's all fucking with the timing and direction of the kick.

Have your shoulders and head at 90 when you pop, and fully rotated 180 when your board is at 90

Back 360s plz. I tried the scoop suggestion like an impossible but my body doesnt come all the way around with it and it ends up like a bigspin and my board hits me in the ankles.

Youíre going to want to do a frontside tailslide but stand in the opposite stance than what you would normally ride in.  So if you are left foot forward (we call that Regz) you would ride with your right foot forward (known as goofy).  From there you want to pop, rotate 90 degrees like a frontside 180, but put your tail down and slide on the obstacle.

From there, just pop out and ride away clean.  Hope that helps.  Donít get frustrated and just have fun learning new tricks!

Start learning them coming at the ledge at a pretty big angle and swing a big ol switch frontside 180 at it. Once you get comfortable landing in them you can start adjusting your angle of approach to get better slides.

Treat your shoulders and weight distribution like you're doing a halfcab, and don't focus entirely on your business foot because you have to keep your popping foot on the tail and get it nice and leveled out when you're learning to get your tail on the ledge.

I wrote about this trick on page 8. Have not done one in years but I donít think the mechanics have changed. Itís hard to explain how you have had success but itís fun to try to. Have fun.

Tried this with my front 180s which and they were much better rotated. I really have a bad habit of not paying attention to my shoulders enough.

As soon as I pop I like to think of it like getting into a noseslide, which makes it less intimidating in my mind. Also I try to bring my sliding foot up as far as I can to over exaggerate the leveling out motion and make sure I get my nose high enough to get on the ledge. I'd suggest practicing switch 180's and really try to throw your weight around to level them out good. Hope this helps.

Nollie flips!!!  :'(  I've got nollie tres, nollie varial flips and a good straight nollie but for some reason over the 17 years I've been skating, I've never been able to get a clean nollie flip, whenever I do one they are pure worm burners and just bounce off the ground..

Random question but can you do nollie backside flips at all? Or do you have the same problem with those? The way I position myself then pop and flick for a nollie flip (thinking front foot position, specifically) has more to do with how I'd pop a nollie backside flip than a nollie varial or 360 flip. Something with how nollie backside flips force you to pop straight and actually flick out behind you, when for nollie varial flip or 360 flip you actually just kind of kick the board and barely move your flicking foot. Maybe you just need to practice the flick. Try forcing yourself to do one of your good nollies with less of your back foot on the board, then flicking at the peak of the jump. Remember that just like you do on nollies, for nollie flips you also have to pop using the forwards direction momentum and jump towards the tail if that makes sense. I hope you eventually figure them out (they also took me forever to get right), they're a fun trick.

I can do nollie frontside flips now and again but I don't think I've ever actually landed a nollie backside flip.. But yeah you're right, its definitely something to do with my weak back foot flick as like you say, when doing nollie tre or varial flip it doesn't actually require much flick from the back foot. I'll work with those pointers and get back to you on it. One of my favourite tricks to watch people do clean.
Thanks for taking the time to give your thoughts.  :)

My nollie flips still aren't great but once I started paying more attention to lifting my front foot straight up I started landing more and they started looking better.

pretty close to getting front bigspins, the only problem I'm having is that I consistently catch them one-footed as the board is going behind me. "behind" meaning it sort of stays in place when I pop while my body moves forward (naturally, because of forward momentum), i don't mean behind in the sense people usually do where tricks shoot out in the direction of their ass.

front shuv. literally no clue how to get that thing to spin frontside. also tips on how i can stop rotating my shoulders open during kickflips would be much appreciated
I started getting a lot better when I went back to college and started taking a lot of math classes when I was 31.

I figured out how to figure things out better, if that makes sense.

I do/did the same. Start with your front hand in front of you, but land with it behind you but keep your shoulder aligned with your hip. It makes you kind of swing your shoulder in front of you but stay straight. It took a minute to not feel super weird but it works for me so far.

I'm old so I scoop my front shoves.

front shuv.

same here, although i have no problem with making the board rotate, the only issue is that i can't keep the board under me and i usually land either in a nose manual and the board shoots out or with my heels on the board and my toes on the ground. shit, i can varial heel better than i can front shove. i can do them in fakie and nollie well but regular and switch is beyond me.

Just to learn what the motions will feel like, do them on a deck on some carpet. Extrapolate from there.
