Hi, welcome to VisiHow. Today, we're going teach you how to do a hardflip. In order to do a hardflip, you're going to want to know how to do frontside pop shove its and kickflips. Once you can do those two, you're going to want to put them together in order to do the hardflip. There's a lot more that you want to know before sticking those tricks together, and lay into your hardflips.
Let's start with foot positioning. The front foot is going to be lower than it would normally be for a kickflip, but on the same angle. It will also be a lot closer to the back trucks.
Then the back foot will be in the position we would normally have it for front shoves so a bit on an angle in the back. That way, we're ready to pop and scoop a nice front shove.
Once we get that, we're going to flick off the corner.
That's going to spin the kickflip. We put those two tricks together, the front shove and the kickflip, and we're going to have a hardflip.
Again, let's set up our feet.
Then, pop. When we pop, scoop one way.
At the same time, we're going to be flicking with our front foot off the other side of the board.
Hardflips aren't easy. It says so in the name. Therefore, don't expect to get them perfect right away. It's probably best to practice just spinning them first. To do that, set up in the position.
Then just practice getting the flip, and catching it with our front foot.
Once we're got that flick, we're going to be able to get the hardflip. The hardest part is learning how to spin it properly. Once we're feeling comfortable at least spinning it, we're going to want to go for the complete hardflip. Pop the front shove, flip the kickflip, and just hope to stick it.
When first trying to get hardflips, you might not get the flick just right. You may just be spinning it, and the board will just launch out, flying. Once you learn to get the flick off the end, when doing a front shove, just pop it and get that flick off down the side. Then you'll get those sweet hardflips. Thank you for watching VisiHow.
