Kick spin

Eey Toby

Yester day almost landed a new trick I tried to do a kick flip but one of my feet got out of the straps and I spun the board it one foot.

I managed to catch the board but was surprised with what I did and forgot to put back the board in time :( otherwise it would have been really cool.

I'll try to get some footage by the time I get it I really love the boost 18m man :)

I just did this a couple days ago too. Caught it and realized it was in the perfect position for getting it back on but somehow I had one of those moments where I couldnt quite line up and it was a bit late for a clean landing. I think it would be difficult to replicate at will. I'd like to see it on video.

Not exactly sure what you mean...a one foot KickFlip?

Or it spins around one foot? Or is it like a tailspin but without hands?

Would need a video to see exactly what you mean.

But sounds interesting!

The board spins around one foot but not likely to flip or at least not controlled. You probably could control the release after it spins around the foot for a nice catch.
