How to Do a Kickflip 50-50 on a Skateboard

Learn how to do a Kickflip 50-50 from professional skateboarders Bam Margera and Kerry Getz in this Howcast skateboarding video.


Kerry: Alright. Now on this one we're going to teach you a kickflip 50/50, what it is. A kickflip 50/50 is when you ride with the ledge parallel in front of you is for a front-side flip 50/50. You're going to do an ollie kickflip, land both trucks on the ledge or the rail, whatever you're grinding, and ride away. This one is definitely...You want to have kickflips, ollies, and 50/50s on lock before you start flipping into these tricks.

Bam: You pretty much have to catch the 50/50 in order to have enough aim and balance to land in 50/50 position. You pretty much have to have your kickflips completely wired if you're going to try a trick like this.

Kerry: You can do it either front-side or back-side. Front-side is, of course, when you're facing the ledge or the rail, and back-side of the way Bam is facing having his back to the rail.

Bam: So there you have it. It's pretty much like one big math project, but if you stick with it you'll get it.
