    Are you spending a lot of time building up the switch tricks? Body may be adjusting to other side from all the practice. In my opinion though, anything you don't do long enough, you're gonna form...

    ^ They are best thought of as seperate beasts, but really not that hard once you know how to handle them. I think the reason switch and nollie kickflips mess with a lot of people is because unlike...

    I remember in a tutorial involving 360 flips where i'd hear the body has to jump straight up and down to land on the board(even though this isn't for 360 flips, it's a pretty good concept to keep in...

    360 flip for me too, I have some weird block about them. Trick never made sense to me so I always stuck to my others in runs. I did get a lot closer to 360 flips after I started trying bigspins and...

    Back foot's toes may be too far over the edge, which can cause board to turn backside - try pulling foot back towards the heel a bit. Hard to say without seeing what's being done, though. A better...
