How to Do a Kickflip | 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,
The kickflip is typically the next trick you learn after perfecting the ollie. It’s done much the same way, where you pop
the back of your board off the ground, and slide your front finger up. Now, instead of sliding your front finger
up to the middle of the board and leveling it out – instead, you’ll be kicking your finger
to the side of the board and rotate completely, catch it, and land. The problem a lot of people run into when
they’re first learning to do the kickflip is not being able to rotate the board and
get the board off the ground. If this is the problem that you’re running
into, you’ll wanna make sure you can get your ollies at least a couple of inches off the
ground before you start learning the kickflip. Once you can do that, if you’re having trouble
rotating the board completely, you need to make sure you’re kicking the corner of the
fingerboard hard enough to make sure it’s flipping. Once you learn how to do the kickflip, you
can start doing it in the three other stances. The switch flip, just like with the regular
kickflip, is done the exact same way. You pop the board off the tail and flick off
with your middle finger. The only difference is that you’ll be rolling
this way, rather than to your left. An ollie flip is done much the same way as
a kickflip is done, except you’ll be popping off the front of your board and flipping with
your back middle finger. For a fakey flip, you’ll be moving to your
right, and popping with your middle finger and flicking with your back pointer finger. When learning any type of kickflip, it helps
if you can pop the board higher into the air because this gives you more time to catch
the board. And that’s how you kickflip on a fingerboard.
