Learn how to fingerboard and how to do tech deck tricks in these Howcast videos.
Hi. My name is Taylor Rosenbauer. I've been traveling all over the United States to fingerboard competitions, demos, and I've appeared on MTV and just having a great time with this really fun hobby. I'm taking a trip to Germany, competing at the world championships for fingerboarding. Today I will be demonstrating fingerboarding. Today I will be demonstrating how to do a tre flip on a finger board, also known as a three-sixty kick flip. A three-sixty kick flip is a combination of a three-sixty pop shuvit and a kick flip. Finger positioning for the kick flip is your back finger hanging off just a little bit behind the back four bolts and your pointer finger right behind the front four bolts. But just the tip of your front finger on it. When you do this trick you want to pop and pull your middle finger towards you in a scooping motion. This will turn the board three hundred and sixty degrees while flipping the board, doing a tre flip. Once you have mastered the tre flip, then the next trick you want to learn is the faky tre flip. For the faky tre flip you are going in the opposite direction but your stance is the same as your regular tre flip. The finger positioning for the faky tre flip is exactly the same as the regular tre flip except in this case it's actually a lot easier because you have momentum to do the faky tre flip. Nailing swiss tres are a bit more difficult. The reason for this is your stance is completely the opposite of your regular stance. For these two tricks I recommend not hanging your finger off the back of the tail. Instead keep it square with the board and to help turn the board three hundred and sixty degrees it's helpful to turn your wrist with the board. It's usually a lot more comfortable if your back finger is just square on the tail rather then hanging off. If you don't turn your wrist with the board it might be difficult to turn the board a full three hundred and sixty degrees but by turning your wrist it's a lot easier to flip the board. That's how you do a three sixty kick flip.
