How to do a kickflip with a surfboard

Postby longwhitecloud » Tue Jan 12, 2016 3:14 am

Finally got around to making this one! On a wave next while waveriding :-0 .. i hope. If it gets more windy - i started to use a different technique - a late flip - ollie hover and flip on the way down - then the wind has less chance to mess it all up. Well balanced boards help too - ie weight of front and back half similar.. I think strapless freestyle is going to see some interesting developments - no many possibilities in the future. Airton certainly is opening up a whole new set of ideas!

Nice!!!!

Youre getting a lot of mileage from that board. Is it the 6'2''? Definitely one of the magic models.

Excellent work on all of it, LWC. I saw your channel a few days ago and really like your approach to the videos, and of course your riding. 8)

Keep them coming, it's awesome!
I will dig up something cool for you and those videos and send it via PM.
Happy Kiting!

thx guys

"Youre getting a lot of mileage from that board. Is it the 6'2''? Definitely one of the magic models."

- was good in big waves but i now downgraded to a really old cobra factory? naish 5'6" now - light as a feather and i havn't snapped it - - yet...... has lasted way longer
hard for the companies because it makes no sense to make a board that will snap - but you need a very light board to be able to do some strapless tricks!
