How to Do a Heelflip | 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. Today I will be demonstrating fingerboarding. The heelflip is a very difficult trick. To do the heelflip you want to make sure you
know how to do an ollie and it helps if you know how to do a kickflip. Now, unlike the kickflip where you’re flicking
your finger off to the side towards you, you’re actually going to be flicking away from you. This is going to make the board spin away
from you rather than towards you. The finger positioning for the heelflip is
your back finger right on the tip of the tail, so you can pop it nice and hard against the
table. And your front finger right at the back of
the front fore bolts. What I like to do when I do heelflips is kind
of curl my front finger, just a little bit, right as I begin to pop the board. That helps me pop, and then kind of flick
it away from me a lot more easily than if my finger was flat. The way I learned heelflips when I first started
is try turning the board towards you, as if you’re doing a front side heelflip. The reason for that is it’s easier to flick
the entire board away from you if it’s coming towards you like this. So as you pop it towards you, you can kind
of just roll your hand off the side, making it spin away from you. Once you can make the board spin away from
you as it’s turning towards you, then just work on, instead of turning it towards you
just straighten it out a little bit more and before you know it you’ll go from having heelflips
like that, to heelflips that are straight. After you’ve mastered the heelflip you can
try a few variations. You can learn to do nollie heelflips, fakie
heelflips and switch heelflips. For a fakie heelflip you’re moving in the
opposite direction, popping off the front of the board and doing the heelflip. For a nollie heelflip you’re moving in the
same direction as a regular heelflip, which is forward, but popping off the nose and doing
the flip with your middle finger. For a switch heelflip you’re riding in the
opposite direction again, popping with your pointer finger and doing the heelflip with
your middle finger. And that’s how you do the heelflip.
