I can't land this stupid things!! Every time I flick my foot of the side it flips ahead of me.

you arent trying. you need to jump and bring your feet up, dont just jump then put your back foot down. i can guarantee you thats your problem

Yeah good tip. I tried what you said and I landed on the back of my board. I flicked harder and it overflipped. Then I finally landed it.

How To Varial Flip:

Stance:have your stance just like a kickflip:backfoot on the like a pop shove-it . front foot near the front truck bolts at a 45 degree angle.

1. Pop the tail down just like an ollie, but spin it like a shove-it.

2. when board spins like 10 degrees flick your front foot of the corner of the nose.

3. when the board starts to spin and flips. Tuck your knees up.

4. Now land it.
