    Skateboarder Brian Tucci demonstrates how to do a heelflip on a skateboard.

    Brian Tucci: Hi, my name is Brian Tucci. We are at State of Confusion Skate Park in Maryland. I am teaching you intermediate skateboard skills today. The skill we are about to learn is the Heelflip. Alright, with the Heelflip, it's basically the same as the Kickflip where you are kicking your foot off on the opposite side of the board which means you are going to hang the ball of your foot and your toes over the opposite edge which is basically your front side edge. You are going to stand with your tail centered, foot centered in the tail of your board, you are going to Ollie down and kick forward and push down with your front foot. This is going to flip the board in the opposite direction and basically, you are going to land in just like a Kickflip. This concludes the series of intermediate skateboarding. Hopefully, you will be able to take these skills and grow with them. These are definitely the skills that you are going to use all throughout your skateboarding lifespan. Definitely, it will be fun. There is a lot of direction you can go with all of these skills. You can take them to new levels, combine them and make new tricks. Hopefully, you have gotten something out of it and I really enjoyed showing you intermediate skateboarding. Thanks again.
