this is the one trick you must learn, at first it may seem impossible but just keep trying and you'll eventually get it, don't be discouraged if others can do it before you because everyone learns at a different pace

Major EDIT & Revision
>>For those who are still having troubles SPINNING the board:

Make sure before your pop the board that you put you front foot (the one you spin the board with) at and angle. The reason why is because this allows you to spin the board faster.

>>For those who keep having the board going behind them:

The reason to correct this is just to make sure you pop the board all the way till you hear the popping sound of the board (tail) and then you begin spinning/flicking the board.

EDIT: For those who cannot land it/keep the board under their feet:

The reason why the board dosen't land/stay underneath your feet is because there is not enough FEET on top of the board for it to stay under. Make sure your both of your foots ARE NOT hanging off to were you cannot balance on the board too well. If you don't the board will end up flying to were it's not underneath you. Also make sure that your feet aren't too far apart from each other. Pop, then slide your front foot to the left then land on the board.

- Make sure your front foot is angled (or you can keep it straght but is harder to get the board to flip)
- Make sure before you pop the board before you begin flipping
- Make sure your feet are not hanging too far off the board to were you cannot balance
- Make sure your feet aren't too far apart

ok heres a tip for ya. when i first learned how to kickflip.I just took off the trucks and wheels (and this also helps without the grip tape).I just put my board on the ground and flipped it and landed it the FIRSTTIME!!!the thing most people are afraid of is that the wheels is going to hit their shins.or they will fall off it wen they do it. just dont be afraid. u have to go for it.
