How do I do hard flips?

Hard Flips - Version 2

A hard flip is a combination of 2 tricks. The combinations of tricks are the kick flip and the front side pop shove it. If you can do those 2 tricks by them selves then you can do the hard flip. I'm telling you from experience its mixing a couple of tricks to make one trick. The key to the hard flip is keeping your shoulders parallel with your board. You only want to rotate your lower body front side as your kick flipping and shoving your board. Make sure you don't do illusion flips which are the kind of hard flips that flip in-between your legs. To better explain this take a look at Mike Carrol and Richard Mulder, those guys have the best hard flips out there. Now remember keep in mind what I told you about the 2 tricks in one. All a hard flip is, is a kick flip and a front side pop shove it. Now get out there and practice…remember practice makes perfect.
