How to Do a Varial Flip on a Skateboard

Learn how to do a varial flip from professional skateboarders Bam Margera and Kerry Getz in this Howcast skateboarding video.


Bam: So now we're going to teach you varial flips, which is one of my favorite tricks to do. A varial heelflip, and/or varial kickflip. So, with the varial heel, you put your foot hanging off the middle like this.

Kerry: Like in a heel-foot position.

Bam: Yeah, so when you do an Ollie your board goes like that, and then you catch it, and kickflip same thing, but your foot's on this side.

Kerry: And the key to both of these tricks is definitely using your toe again and doing the scoop like the 360 flip. So you want to get the scoop with the back, and then do your heelflip. The scoop with your toe is gonna give you that shove-it of the board. That's usually the key in a lot of those tricks with the shove-its is your back foot.

Bam: Make sure you do your shove-it of the board.

So there's your variations of varial flips.
