Alpha flip trick tip

Alpha flip is a short name for a bigspin hospital flip.

It's a difficult trick, so make sure to learn the Hospital flip first.


(Video by Enjoi)

  1. 1

    Start riding with your front foot on the front bolts and your back foot on the toeside of the tail.


  2. 2

    Crouch down and get ready to pop a bs 180 ollie.


  3. 3

    Pop the board and drag the tip of your front foot up towards the nose.


  4. 4

    As you turn the first 90 degrees, put your front foot underneath the board.


  5. 5

    Now scoop up the board with your front foot. This will make the board rotate 360 degrees. It's tricky, but be patient and keep trying.





  6. 6

    Catch the board in the air while finishing your 180 rotation and land.





Tips

  • Your front foot never leaves the board.

  • Don't give up, keep trying and you'll get it!
