The Kick Flip
    To do a kick flip put your feet into a position similar to the ollie position.  Put your back slightly closer to the corner of the tail, and put your front foot slightly angled toward the nose.  Bend your knees, start your jump.  Smack the tail, and drag your front foot up toward the nose just like an ollie.  Kick your front foot forward off the side of the nose; as your foot leaves the griptape, use your toe to flip the board.  Lift your back foot up quickly to give the board room to flip.  The tail of your board should be coming up toward your back foot.  Catch the board with your back foot, griptape side up, and stop the board from over-flipping.  Put your front foot back on the board; stay centered, and land.  Keep your balance, and roll away.
