THE 360 KICKFLIP / TRE FLIP


 THE TRE FLIP



WHAT'S UP GUYS,

today's trick is the 360 flip.

I don't think it's necessary to learn how to varial kickflip (180 pop shove it + kickflip), beacause the 360 flip aka treflipis a totally different trick, as footplacement and the way you make it flip.
The rotation of the treflip is a 360 pop shove it while you make flip the board. It's quite difficult to learb, but when you will get it, will be quite difficult to forget.

Let's see now the feetplacement:

put your front foot in kind a kickflip position, in the middle of the board. Point it a little.
The back foot is the secret with this trick. Your backfoot must be toe hanging a littl bit. That means that you have to put your toes on the curvature of the tail.
Now this is the correct feetplacement.

Now that you know how to set up your feet let's start with the trick motion:

now that you've put your backfoot on te curvature 'scoop' the board. Scoop is the name of the motion that you make with the backfoot. It means that you push the backfoot behind really hard, and that's why the board flips. It's all in the backfoot, it's all in the scoop. The front foot is just there to catch it. That means that when you'll go out to learn this trick, remember to concentrate only on the backfoot.

Other tips that might help you:

don't expect to learn it the first day you'll start to practice, neither the first week or month. It will take you a lot of time, but it worth. The first times just try to scoop the board and see how it flips and what's the perfect feet placement for you, then you could start trying to land it.
Your shoulder must not be parallel with the board, but a little opened toward the nose of the board.

Most error is not scooping with enough power your backfoot, so the board does only a 270 instead of a 360. don't worry, the only way to learn it is practicing it.
It might take you a few time, or a lot of time, but with practice you'll learn everything you want.
Remember, PERSISTENCE IS THE KEY, AND IF YOU WANT A TRICK, IT WILL
BE YOURS.
