episode 9: heelflip
Some find it harder than the kickflip, some people don’t - in this video you’ll be learning the heelflip.
We'd like to say a big thank you to ATBShop Skate Warehouse for letting us film in their park and Geoff from Rubicon for his time and expertise.
things to remember
Back foot on the tail, slightly centred so you can use your toes to get more pop
Front foot on the toe edge, around the bolts, slightly pointed up the board
Pop the ollie and slide your front foot up the board and off the toe edge corner to initiate the flip
When you see the grip tape coming round, try and get your feet back onto the bolts
Pro tip: make sure your front food is far enough over the toe edge as this will make the rotation easier
