9 Relatively Simple Kicker Tricks You Should Try


A cab 180 (or half cab) is a slight step up because it’s generally reckoned to be harder to take off switch than it is to land switch. It’s a steezy looking spin which comes in handy anytime you end up riding switch and want to revert back to normal again. Check the more in-depth guide to nailing half cabs on the flat here.

1) This time you’ll be approaching the kicker switch. Approach with speed and ollie off the lip.

2) Rotate your shoulders clockwise (anti-clockwise if you’re goofy) until you’re at 90 degrees in the air. Your board will follow. Suck those knees up and keep the spin going as you edge lower to touch down.

3) Landing is much easier because you’ll be riding normal stance. Like the frontside 180, it can help to move swing you new back shoulder forwards to kill the rotation. Absorb the landing. It can help to touch down with your weight ever so slightly over your toes for extra control.
