You need to keep the board under you.

its moreso committment..to keeping yourself above the board


many flip tricks have a tendency to drift away...but its because the lack of committment on the riders part..to staying above the board and committing onesself to landing(or falling)


try a few, dont be afraid to fall(it happens)...i'm betting you will see what i mean

start with just doing 360 shove-it's to get the timing of the rotation and to focus on landing on the board properly.

move your feet to your kick-flip stance and continue doing the 360 shove-it's to get familiar with your footing and timing.

now add the ollie emphasizing on the shove-it part instead of the kick flip and you should be landing at least small 360 flips in no time.


hope that helps...

Hold the joystick to the left, and when you just pop up, press "A" three times and "B" twice.

The Scoop and flick are the easy part ,at least for me .I tried 'em for almost 10 years but landed consistently w/out front foot , just the back foot catches.The secret as it was told to me was as you ollie,hop forward.that was the missing link, i landed my 1st one that day, a couple more nothing special. i'm 37 and flip tricks never were part of my repetior.so I've made a party trick out of it. tre-flip one-foot w/front foot on deck of ramp or bowl, to staple-gun(aka "dog piss" in)!
