Things to know about doing this trick

This is the best trick to have under your belt, by far. It looks the best and feels awesome. The trick to this is starting the flat spin early, staying over top and not kicking to hard.

Your feet should look like this:
Put your feet in kickflip position and then move your front foot back to the center of the board. Put your back foot so the toe is hanging off the edge of the tail a little bit.

When you begin the pop you want to start the rotation early. When the board hits the ground you want the flat spin to be at a 45 degree angle.

Give it a pretty high ollie pop so that there is enough time for the board to rotate under you. Make sure you pop straight up so that it says under you too.

Flick like a kickflip with the front foot. Don't flick too hard. If your timing is right that board will spin smoothly without a lot of effort.

This trick is hard to master. Once you get it you have covered the skills you need to land any trick. It takes time in the air to rotate the flip.

I find 3-flips easier to land than kickflips.  Once flicked there is no time for the board to flutter and get out of control.

Do them with a big ollie and float them nice and sloooow.

Here is a video of what it looks like:

Doing this trick Fakie

Like any flip trick popping the tre fakie will be easier to flip but harder to control.
