How to Do Backside & Frontside 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. Backside and Frontside flips are a variation
of the 180 Ollie and a kickflip. For a frontside kickflip you’ll be doing a
kickflip plus a frontisde 180 Ollie. To do that your finger positions should be
the exact same as a regular kickflip, the only difference is when you go to pop the
trick you want to kick your front finger out towards you rather than straight forward. This will not only do a kickflip but make
the entire board flip towards you. Once you do the kickflip, you wanna catch
it and continue the rotation with your entire arm until you reach a full 180 degrees. A nice way of learning this trick is to just
do a regular kickflip, land it, then do a revert. From there you just do a kickflip and try
to revert less and less until you can can kickflip and do entire 180 in the air. For backside kickflips you’re doing the exact
opposite: you’re doing a kickflip but turning the board in the opposite direction. Like a backside 180. So to do that you have the exact same position
as you would for a kickflip but to do that you turn your entire hand to the left, making
your board spin away from you in the backside 180 motion. That’s how you do the frontside and backside
180 kickflips.

  1. Wow, I started off fingerboarding after maybe 5 years. And couldn't get my almost ugly frontside flips up. But the trick with pulling back my frontfoot a bit does (wait for it) the trick. Thx a lot dude. Aloha
