    Default official 360 Flip thread

    i hate how General Trick Talk is flooded with threads that are all about 360 flips! so i had an idea to make a thread that has questions, answers, and help on 360 flips. Discuss/Ask/Answer/Help.

    EDIT: 2/6/2006. Just so people know, I am not the one who will be answering people's questions. I made this thread so people could help people, okay?

    I just thought I'd let everyone know.

    Help me out here. Im so close to gettin tres every time, just that I always miss a perfect landing by landing my front foot on the nose and back foot on the middle of the board. Its a perfect rotation, just landing is screwed. Whats happening?

    Well I've landed a few 3 Flips but I'm still working on them. Just whenever I land on it, it flips about 270 and then I fall off. But whenever I try and flip it the full 360 it flips right in front of me and I can never land it. Does anyone have advice?

    Jump back more. When you scoop make sure you pop and then scoop. Also suck your knees up a lot. Thats what I do. I dont know if it will work for you though.
    Guess what?

    Flick it, you have to flick it. and do not lean too forward or back when getting ready to do the tre flip. staying in the middle (maybe just leaning a wee bit back) will dramatically change where you land.

    ok you guys, i talked to a bunch of people from this messageboard, and asked "hey, what tips would you give people if they wanted to learn 360 flips?" well, all of them said "when you scoop, youse your ankle, and then just kick your front foot out there." and "your front foot has to be at a 45 degree angle, no matter what!"

    Foot 45 degrees half way down. Pop hard. Scoop with back foot. Flick with front. Land cleanly. Nuf said
