Introduction: How to Kickflip

in this instructable i will show you how to kickflip.

Items needed
Skateboard
Helmit
and maybe some pads if you are new at the sport.

Step 1: Stance

Your stance is the most important part of the trick if you fell uncomfortable with the way that your standing then try a different stance. your feet should be about in the middle but a little farther up.

Step 2: Kick

now ollie but when you are in the middle of the ollie push to the side and flick the top concaive a little.

Step 3: Flip

now when your board is being flipped move your foot back over your board.

Step 4: Land

Land on your board and dont be afraid to that is what problem i had with kickflipping. Thank you for looking at my instructable.

ya the reason i decided to do this 1 is that there are no instructables on how to do any sk8ing tricks.

It looks easy, but it's actually not very easy to do. Took me a long time kind of, but now I can do it. :-) Nice job.
