KICKFLIPS ON SKATEBOARD BALANCE BOARDS
kickflip on a skateboard balance board, the rider rolls the pipe forward, ollies into the air, and lifts the back foot from the board while sliding the front foot off the inside front corner of the PipeBoard. This front foot motion, sometimes called "the flick" or "flicking," spins the board, flipping it over. Before landing, the rider stops the spin by returning his/her feet to the board as it nears its original position; a slow backward roll ensures a smooth landing. The PipeBoard rotates around the axis parallel to the direction the rider is rolling. To understand this motion, you may imagine stepping backward off of a PipeBoard so it remains in front of you, then rolling it over on the ground toward you; during the kickflip, the board spins similarly, but in mid-air beneath the rider. During a heelflip, a similar trick, the board rotates in the opposite direction.
