Keep your front foot on the deck as you stand for a kickflip. Place it at a 45-degree angle by keeping two or more inches far from the front bolt.

Scoop the board while popping it. Scoop is the main fact in this trick. So try to get underneath the board but not so much. After scooping the board, flick the board with your feet as like as you are doing a kickflip.
Step 3: Jump a little higher
Jump forward by keeping your feet 2 feet high from the board and twist it to spin.
Step 4: Wait for the right moment to catch the board
If you follow the previous three steps, the board will do a 360-degree spin under your feet. Keep an eye on the board’s spinning. While the grip tape reappears after completing a 360 flip, catch the board with your feet.
First, catch it with your front foot and replace your back foot on the deck quickly after catching it. Try to keep the board parallel with the ground in the air.
Step 5: Land the board off.
