The frontside kickflip (frontside flip) is a modern classic: it’s a combination of the straight kickflip and the frontside 180 ollie. It was popularised in the early 90’s by skaters such as Tom Penny and Andrew Reynolds, who took it from the flat and began throwing it down stairs and over handrails. You need a solid kickflip and a good frontside 180 ollie to learn this properly, so make sure you’ve mastered those two tricks before you start working on this one.
