i included #5 because i didnt want to give the impression that you're jumping 2-4 feet towards your toe side. youre really jumping only ~1ft forward to side, but when you're doing it, it most definitely feels like youre jumping straight upward & in your head, you want to be thinking that you're jumping straight up

Well said, I used to think that you had to scoop it hard and jump far forward to catch a fat one like Kalis.

At first I didn’t know where to post this, or to post this at all, but today I landed my first switch 360 flip (albeit stationary and on a penny board…) using the tips and techniques from this thread.

Had a bit of an epiphany with this one. I can sometimes do a decent one and sometimes my feet are super close together towards the middle or up near the front bolts. If you have the problem of landing like this, I figured out that having my head over my popping leg as I get ready to scoop helps a ton. It minimizes the tendency of my body landing front heavy on the board and also makes it easier for me to get that back leg to extend away from the front, ending up in a much more even weight distribution on landing.

TLDR: keep your head over the back leg as you pop.

Took yours and silhouettes advice. Can finally catch with my front foot. I’ve been struggling with only catching with my back foot for a few weeks now. I’m hoping to land one before I turn 30. Getting closer. Thanks Pals.

Catching with the front foot is 75% of the battle, if you got that you're on the right track.

Revisiting this thread to ask: how do you catch a 360 flip with your front foot?

My consistency is improving but on the ones I almost land I catch with both feet and that throws my weight off the board when my wheels hit the ground. The ones I do land I some times need to tick tack to adjust my weight, rarely do I land bolts.

Lost so many good attempts because I can't catch them bolts or with the front foot, feels like I catch them like Rowley instead of (can't think of an iconic 360 flipper at the moment)
