episode 8: kickflip

In this episode, Geoff will to teach you the backside 180 ollie.

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 heel edge, just before the front bolts, pointed up the board

  • Pop the ollie and slide your front foot up the board and off the corner to initiate the flip

  • When you see the grip tape coming round, try and get your feet back onto the bolts

  • Pro tip: when you are learning, pressing downwards as you slide your front foot will make the board spin faster, but may not look as nice
