    dont flick ur foot out all the way.just let it flick the nose and bring it back. and tuck up (it'll be easier to tuck if you do this). so then try to land with ur back foot while doing this. also, you'll need to commit a little more. try that. if it dooesnt work ill tell you another.

    Last night, I could only land kickflips halfway in gra.ss and gravel. Today I tried them again and landed one (the whole flip) in the gravel. Before I was scared and wouldnt even try to land them on blacktop, now I can land them half way on blacktop, what am I doing wrong, I can only land them half way now, any tips?

    well if by half way you mean only half a flip then flick harder and faster to get the rest of the fip, or turn your foot to more of an angle, or put your front foot farther back on the board. i recomend just flicking faster and harder. and for VFSL you might be turning your shoulders when you flick so try not to turn at all. that should keep you front foot in the right place to get bcak on the board.

    get your front foot more to the heel edge of the oard and flikc up and out, not down, thats why you were landing with you foot under the board. also don't jump back and don't turn your shoulders when you flick out. that might have been the reason on some of them you only got you back foot on and were perpendicular to the board. or it could have been you had you back foot too far to the toe edge and made it do half a varial. anyway flick up and out, don't jump back, and bring your front foot more to the heel egde (not dramatically but a little bit) and get your back foot in the dead center of the board. hope this helps.

    what side 19 said also focus on poping more than just flipping also try to land on the board upside down consistantly and than that can also help you land them more

    I can only flip the board halfway, and when I flip it the whole way around, it goes too far forward so only my front foot lands on it.

    Yeah I have a question. When I flick out, it spins halfway, then turns back the other way. What the hell?

    well for like the 821th time, ive had my hopes let back down, my friend said he could fix what ever was wrong, and he didnt. so my question is, why cant i get my front foot back over my nose, and ive already tried jumping high (which doesnt work cus i pop harder, which means a higher kickflip, so they cancel each other out) or tucking up higher, neither of them work. is there somthing else i can try, this is really makin me mad
