Half cab flip appreciation.
« on: December 22, 2014, 08:40:37 AM »
are half cab flips the most underrated trick? probably not BUT when you see a proper one on flat mid line (a la Westgate for example) its the fucking best!

this one from that new dc clip is a prime example 


something about that back foot on the catch just past 90' just stokes me out

I like to catch mine 90, bring it down and revert the rest. I love half cab flips, after regular kickflips and fakie flips, they are probably my most consistent flip trick. I think they sort of have a bad rep sometimes because they're lumped in with varials and sex changes as sort of a grom trick, but I've always thought they were legit. A nicely popped and caught one is one of the nicest looking tricks ever.

Also one of my favorite fllip tricks to do and see, but yes, I distinctly remember hearing more than 1 person refer to a 'no half cab flips on flat in lines' rule in the early 2000s. I never really understood the hate.

Everything has gone through it's period of hate in different places and times. I remember endless Alien Workshop hate between Timecode and Photosynthesis in Souther California. Post Photo, that was unthinkable.

Not the original song so turn the volume off. Second to last trick.

Front Board at MSG is one of my favorite tricks of all time.
