How do i pop my flip tricks higher?
sup guys. I have pretty much mastered ollies, i can easily ollie a foot off the ground or 2 decks primo. Whenever i do flip tricks, i cant get them to pop high. I bend down, pop as hard as i can, but usually what happens is the board gets about 2 or 3 inches of air and flips really low to the ground. Any tips?
dont hang your flicking foot off so much, for example with kickflips, the more of your front foot that is on the board, the higher you can ollie whilst flicking, the only drawback is youll have to flick harder to get the board to flip
oh wow seriously? that could be a huge help for me because i usually hang my foot off alot

yep, I can have my toes hanging off (i.e. heelflip setup) and still bust a kickflip out, it takes more effort, but the board will flip higher as your foot is putting more effort into the ollie, I dont make a habit of flipping like this tho, my foot is mostly on the board, but slightly heel hanging off for kickflips, and I have always considered mine to be a decent height
