How to Do a Hardflip | Fingerboarding


Hi, my name is Taylor Rosenbauer. I’ve been traveling all over the United States
to fingerboard competitions, demos, and I’ve appeared on MTV. And just having a great time with this really
fun hobby. I’m taking a trip to Germany competing at
the world championships for fingerboarding. Today, I will be demonstrating fingerboarding. A hardflip is essentially a frontside kickflip,
but without turning your hand with the board as it spins. So, the board still does a kickflip coming
at you, but your hand does not follow along for the 180 degrees. Only your board will be spinning during this
trick, not your hand. So finger positioning for the hardflip is
your back finger square against square against the tail, just like you would for a regular
kickflip. And your front finger right behind the front
iii. Now, the only difference between this trick
and a regular kickflip, for example, is the way you flick your front finger. Now, in this case, your front finger will
flick right at you, so it flips the board and spins it towards you. When you’re learning the hardflip, it might
be easier if you peel your hand back a little bit more to allow the board to come back with
your hand. Um, if you try to stay on top of the board
as it’s spinning, it might be a little difficult to get it all the way around. So, by peeling your hand back just a little
bit, it lets the board do its 180 rotation. And then you can bring your hand back, catch
it, and roll it iii. A variation of the hard flip is a trick called
a ghetto bird. This trick is basically a hardflip, catch
it, and rotate it backside 180. You do this trick all in the air. So, again, you do a hardflip. And as you catch it, you can even turn your
whole body to help you turn your fingers as you’re rotating the trick. And that’s how you do the hardflip on a fingerboard.

  1. your gay and the reason you tech deck is because you didnt get far with skating so dont try to get other people into some crappy tech decking.

  2. @georgepiemil Skateboarding is not about getting "far." Fuck getting sponsored, it's about the fun of it. If the dude is having fun with fingerboarding let him do it.

  3. I kept doing impossible+sideways+kickflip and i though it was wrong so i was about to make a name for that trick
    until i figure out that was a real hardflip after watching this video

  4. Whenever I get a Tech Dech, I melt the tail and reshape it. I'd like to see someone try it with a competition series, though!

  5. you should make the move slow mo when your doing the trick so you can see the trick better trust me it will be helpful for people LIKE me
