Double kickflip trick tip

Once you got your kickflips down, the double kickflip can be a nice addition to your trick list.

Most people think they're really difficult, but if you are confident with regular kickflips, they're actually not that hard.


(Video by Blindsk8r)

  1. 1

    Start riding in the kickflip position. Crouch down a little for the jump and keep your shoulders inline with the board.


  2. 2

    Pop the board hard, you need enough height for the double flip.


  3. 3

    Flick your front foot forward like a kickflip, just harder. Don't karate kick, a small but powerful flick will do.

    Suck up your legs to give the board some space to flip.


  4. 4

    The board will spin fast, so it's difficult to watch the griptape come up again. It will be a matter of practise to find out when to catch the board.


  5. 5

    Try to land on the bolts and bend your knees a little for the impact.


Tips

  • Keep control of the board, don't make your movements too wide. It's all about fast precision.

  • It's ok to do some one-and-a-half kickflips while practising.
