Tech Deck Tricks: Varial Kickflip and Varial Heelflip


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. These tricks are really a combination of two
basic tricks. The Pop-shove-it and the kick flip and the
pop-shove-it and a heal flip. It involves doing a kick flip while doing
a pop-shove-it. So you’ll be popping the board 180 degrees
while flicking it so it doesn’t kick flip as well. To do the varial kick flip, you wanna pop
the board with your back finger in a scooping motion while flicking the front of the board
with your front finger. This will make the board spin and rotate at
the same time. Once the board is finished rotating and flipping,
you want to catch it with your two fingers, land and roll away. And that’s the varial kick flip. Now to do the varial heel flip, the finger
position is pretty much the exact same for just a regular heel flip but backwards. So you’ll be flipping the board like you do
with a heel flip with your front finger going away from you, making the board spin away
from you but at the same time you want to bring your finger around making the board
do a shove-it towards you while it’s rotating. A variation of the varial heel flip is a trick
called a big heel flip. To do a big flip you want to do a varial kick
flip, land, and do another 180. Just like with the big flip, it helps if you
land a varial heel flip flat and then re-vert the last 180 and as you get more comfortable
with it, you can actually catch the board in the air and do the rotation before you
land the board. And that’s how you do a varial kick flip and
varial heel flip on a fingerboard.
