you wont be able to kickflip after jus lernin to ollie keep trying you will get it

Set up your feet in the ollie position. Your front foot, though, should be adjusted back towards the heel edge a bit and your toes (or rather the front of your shoe) should be just behind the centermost mounting bolts of the front truck. Do an ollie, but rather than only sliding your front foot upward and forward, you must also slide your foot (again, probably your shoe) to the heel side enough to start your board in a spin. This action requires you to actually kick your front foot off of your board; the last point of contact between the front of your shoe and the board should be in that little concaved dip just before the nose. The spinning board then hovers for a second between your sprawling legs. When you see the grip again, stop the rotation with your back foot, then put that front foot back on, right on top of them bolts, and land.

Everyone learns at there own pace. I learned heelflips before kickflips. I have a friend who has been trying moving kickflips for about 5 months and hasn't landed one yet. I learned them in about 2 weeks of solid trying (skating for about 3 to 4 hours a day) When the time is right you'll get them. Keep trying and most importantly have fun! :D
