Skateboard Video Vault: Backside Heelflip

Backside Heelflip is a backside 180 and a heel flip combined into one.  “Backside” refers to the way the skater turns.  During the backside 180 the board flips on the heel side and the skater lands back on the board.  This is a pretty advanced trick because it requires extensive board control and flipping skills.  Foot placement is the most important part of this trick as well as alignment of the shoulders.  Be sure to make sure know where the board is at all times because it is not uncommon for the board to pop-up in between your legs.  Once master this is a super fun trick!
