    Learning how to skate is a fuckin' pain in the ass. Your best bet is to try your trick a thousand times on carpet. If your foot's coming down before the board flips then your probabally being too timid. Dont' be afraid to slip out and fall on your ass a few times. Just flip the board slowly and keep your feet directly above it. If you concentrate you can learn any trick in afew hours.

    try to learn 360 shuv its first
    or this..
    don't kickflip the board very hard concentrate more on what your back foot is doing... you have to push it back really hard like super hard at first until you get the hang of spinning it a full 360... i use my toes a lot when doing this instead of my full foot

    to kickflip, an easy way to learn is to get a rock and draw an x across your front bolts..put your foot along the bottom right line of the x, with your heel hanging off a bit.ollie. as you ollie,flick your front foot along the top right part of the x.that will give the board a good flip.catch it, then ride away...try it in a crack first..as for 3 flip knowlej is right..its all in your back foot...sorry if this is too confusing, i learned it from an old issue of transworld.

    i used to have trouble with my back foot.. but AC slater hit it on the head. draw and x or any thing that will make your foot land on the bolts. it might be easier to draw a picture of some one u hate, so u can pretend that your stomping on their face. !!!

    thats how i learnd my kick and heel flips.. those damn heel flips still get me in my ankles though. oh well lifes odd.. i put my 17 cents in.

    learn how to varial flip first. i had the same problem, but found i could get my front foot on the board too when i would varial flip. if you can flip the board, just do that and shove-it at the same time, you may find it's a lot easier to get both feet on the board. after that, kickflips may become easier to do. it just clicked for me after that.

    yeah... if you concentrate on centering you body more you will do it better. a good way to learn if try to spin it half ways and land with both feet on it upside down. full rotation is the last step if you ask me
