Learn How to Kickflip

Looking for some sick skateboarding tricks? Check out Kidzworld's step-by-step guide to landing a kickflip on your skateboard.


Step 1:
Start with your back foot on the tail of your skateboard and your front foot right under the bolts. Your front foot should be slightly slanted.
Step 2:
Bend your knees and pop your board - just like you do when you're doing an ollie.
Step 3:
Flick your front foot off the tip of the nose, making it flip towards the heel side. Make sure your back foot also comes off the board.
Step 4:
Suck up your legs for the catch. Try and keep your feet directly over the bolts of your board.
Step 5:
Stomp on the board to stick the landing and absorb the shock. Then roll away and try your kickflip again.
