Step 1

We recommend rolling at a moderate speed for this to help get the full rotation. This is where you should have your shoulders wound up and have a good balance ready to pop and unwind.

Start to unwind as quick as you can while maintaining your balance.

Step 2

While unwinding your shoulders in the backside direction. You should be spinning so fast that you wont begin to kickflip until your at 90 degrees into your rotation.

Pop the board straight down and towards your back. but don't lean out towards the front. Your going to float this thing out and be directly above it.

Give a strong flick so you can extend that front foot out and have it ready to land.

Step 3

This is where it all comes together. And where it gets tricky. This is also the point in the caballerial flip that most skateboarder will struggle with. The full rotation will come from earlier on in the trick.

If you have done everything that Mo Duncan Jr has done up to this point then you just need to hold out those lege and be ready to land. and land lightly on the front foot so you can revert and rotation you didnt achieve in the air.
