Speaker 1: So now we're gonna teach you a kick flip. And Carey here is well known for the perfect kick flip so he's gonna show you how to catch it and how to bone it and how to do it right.

Carey: Always wanna level your board out. Always wanna use the good part of your foot, good side of your foot and flick off and always kick your foot on a nice angle to the front and not off to the side 'cuz that will cause a mob flip. So you really wanna get a nice solid Olly and then flick your foot off to the side front.

Speaker 1: This is absolutely a must learn and its very important to make sure that once you do a kick flip that you catch it a bone it out because that's what's it called, mob if you don't do that.

Carey: Yeah

That's when your board stays like that and it looks like a rocket flip and that's a no, no. So

Carey: yeah, you want flick not mob.

Speaker 1: You want flick you do not want mob. So kick flip is pretty much top five tricks to learn and you can do 'em on a mini ramp to fakies . You can do double flips, you can do it over pyramids on euro gaps down stairs, anything. Kick flips are a must learn.

Carey: Yeah in and out of ledges you can do it as you learn like ledge trick and slide tricks. So that's a key trick to skate boarding.

Speaker 1: So there's the kick flip.
