I used to have them like 18 years ago. I tried relearning them this year and was only able to get my front foot on, my back lingered behind the board. Going to try again next year. Ill say 250 tries, maybe less if my buds are there hyping me up.

Exactly my problem. Also my body wants a 90 degree catch buy I just can't catch up my back foot

Damn this is sick! You got a great hardflip! You inspired me to try them out the proper way today.

Thanks for posting this!
Do you get deja vu, huh?

That was proper! Respect!

It would take me about 15 tries to land an illusion/muska style one that doesn't really flip.

Bruh you rock.

I got fs flips and front shuvs so hardflips should come easily. Tried a few but no luck. Got a fs flip instead which was nice. The body wants to move with the bloard, got to work on that.
why come?

I did a fs bigflip on a hip in 2009. Not a hardflip 180. It was a legit fs bigspin hardflip. I had the gif on my myspace and everything.

Those were the days.

regular, never. switch, 1st try. i know i'm not alone on this one.

im opposite

For some reason i land my regular ones with my heels touching always

both of them are pressure as fuck though

switch is easy as hell on a bank for anyone struggling

Lol. Eldee is definitely a human. Hes like a raider on horse back whos kinda scared to do battle. Somehow he closes his eyes and swings his sword wildly and wakes up in a pile of dead orcs.
