Fingerflip trick tip

The fingerflip is a cool freestyle flip trick that doesn't require ollies.

They are so much fun to do, because they feel different from any other trick you've ever done.


(Video by Kris)

  1. 1

    Start riding slowly with your back foot on the tip of the tail and your front foot on the back bolts.


  2. 2

    Reach down and grab the nose of the board with your front hand.

    Bend your knees a little.


  3. 3

    Lean back and push the tail down. Keep holding on to the board.

    Don't stand on the tail, it's just a quick tap.


  4. 4

    Jump up and flip the board in a heelflip motion with your hand.

    This looks easy, but you will notice it's not that easy to jump while holding the board.





  5. 5

    Watch the griptape come up again and land.


Tips

  • The shorter you stand on the tail, the better it looks.

  • Other flips are possible as well, go crazy.

I watched a trick tip on this trick by Mike V and Tony Hawk that said to put your thumb on the bottom and your fingers up top. Most people don't do it that way, but if your not landing it this way than its worth a try.
