How can I learn?
« on: September 15, 2019, 02:02:06 AM »
Hi.. I'm Tom.. I'm having trouble with my kickflips and hoping you could help.. My concern is that I can't keep the board anyplace close to me when endeavoring a kick flip. My board consistently goes excessively far before me. What am I fouling up??

do you do it moving when you try it?  are you flicking off the corner of the board?

Sit down and draw a circle in the air with your kickflip foot rolling your ankle.

Do the bottom half of the circle movement while ollieing.

It will take some adjusting but its the flicking motion most people have trouble with, its an ankle movement.
