Varial kickflip trick tip

The varial kickflip is a combination of a kickflip and a shove-it.

Some people find them easier than normal kickflips, but it's still best to learn normal kickflips first.

  1. 1

    Start riding at medium speed with your back foot on the toeside of the tail and your front foot on the heelside near the front bolts.


  2. 2

    Crouch down and get ready to pop the board. Keep your shoulders in line with the board.


  3. 3

    Pop the board with your back foot. You only need to shove a little, the board will already make the shove-it rotation from popping on the toeside of the tail.

    Jump high enough to give the board some room.


  4. 4

    Tap the heelside of the board with your front foot to make the board flip.





  5. 5

    Try to catch the board in the air with both your feet and land with your feet on the bolts.


Tips

  • The pop, shove and flip are actually one combined movement.

  • Suck up your legs to give the board room to flip.
