Forward flip trick tip

A forward flip is a trick where you flip the board in a forward rotation.

Forward flips are pretty difficult, make sure to master the kickflip and ollie north first.

(Video by Josh)

  1. 1

    Start with your feet in the ollie position, with your front foot all the way on the board.

    Crouch down and get ready to jump.

  2. 2

    Pop the board with your back foot.

  3. 3

    Drag your front foot up like an ollie, but keep going all the way over the nose of the board.

  4. 4

    Get your feet out of the way.

  5. 5

    Watch for the grip to come up again, catch the board with your feet on the bolts and land.


  • Forward flips have a lot of potential to end in a "nutcracker", take care.

  • Jump forward a little, as the board will go forward too (hence the name).
