    I can get the spin right and land my back foot but for the life of me can't land my front foot. Any help? I also have a video

    Your putting your foot down and not jumping above the board and stop turning your body. Keep it up you will get it. I could never do single rotaion kickflips or heelflips I could only do doubles.

    For the life of me I could never do a single damned kick flip.

    I can't even get the board to turn.

    Man, I can't believe skateboards have made a comeback. When I was a kid/teen, it was all about rollerblades. Skateboards were so UNCOOL when I was that age :lol

    Rollerblades were never cool. There were just a lof of uncool people who thought that they were.

    in the late 80's/early 90's, Rollerblades were the IT thing here.

    But that might be because everyone I knew was into hockey, thus rollerblades/rollerhockey was pretty much all we did.

    Are you landing ontop of the board when it only does a half flip? In the vid it looks like when you jump you are rotating your body. Its pretty much an ollie and kicking down at the peak of your ollie.

    Last time I used a skateboard was after school one day.
    We was mucking around in the basketball court, when someone said,
    'Hey, how about someone lies down on the skateboard, and someone else pushes them?'
    Me and my friends, being the high school fools that we were, all readily agreed. So my friend gets on, gets pushed at a ridiculous speed, and has to roll off to avoid smashing into the fence.

    Ok, my turn.

    I get on the board, stick my legs up in the air. My friend grabs my legs and starts pushing me. He lets go and I go flying off at high speed. I feel euphoric, as though there isn't a care in the world. Cars could go to hell as far as I cared, this was how I was traveling from now on. In STYLE.

    At which point my tie got caught in the wheel and I got flipped over. That night I told my parents I had gotten my tie (now shredded) caught in a door and had tripped over (explaining the cuts on my head, elbows and hands).

    Let this be a lesson to you kiddies; whilst in your school uniform, never, under any circumstances agree to lying down on a skateboard and being pushed like a wheel barrow on a asphalt surface in your school uniform.

    Oh teenager days...

    Naw, my front foot like does the same thing when I don't try to jump higher. I know that I'm flicking then just letting my front foot fall, I try to suck it back in but I can't

    Watch out.

    If I see you in the road while I'm trying to park, I will hit you.

    Do you think the part about me not sucking my legs in is mental?

    Don't worry, in about six or seven years we'll all be on Hoverboards.

    You should go oll original and make up way cooler moves. Like the ollie kickback or the Formas Flip. Get a cheesesteak and learn the one handed Moore hop, or when you fall go into a cataclysm bend. llamatronic style

    Don't be a poser
