September 14, 2007, Newsletter Issue #82: Learning a Heelflip

Tip of the Week

You start a heelflip by setting up your back foot on the tip of the tail and your front foot just behind the front truck bolts, your toes hanging off the edge of the board. Hold your body straight. Squat down, then pop your ollie. Jump with it, but don't lean, try to stay straight. Immediately after your tail touches the ground, kick your front foot forward and in the direction in which you are rolling with your heel in a diagonal position. The hardest part of this trick is to not lean back or push forward. Keep your body straight and upright. When you catch the board, push it down and keep on moving.
