Step 1: Position

Front foot inbetween the two sets of nails. Back foot on the tail.

Step 2: Lean and Jump

put your weight on your back foot. Jump up while pushing down on your back foot. Your front truck should go up first. (Like in the picture below)

Step 3: Slide

    Slide your front foot across the board. this will straighten your board so it's level. (optional)

Step 4: Landing

The landing is easy just move your foot back to the board from where you slid it. Don't bother working on your position you can get that back to normal position on land.

Step 5: Random Tips

   -Don't lean back at the beginning just put tour weight on it.
   -Slide your foot off the board to go higher.
   -When you are in the air, lean on your front foot to go farther.
   -Get skateshoes (Vans, DC's, Fallens, ect.)

Kick flip
