The varial flip is a classic skateboarding trick that involves a kickflip with a 180-degree spin. It's a great trick to add to your repertoire and can be a lot of fun to learn. In this post, we'll go over the steps to help you master the varial flip.

Step 1: Foot Placement Start by placing your front foot just below the bolts on the board's nose, angled slightly towards the heel edge. Place your back foot on the tail, with your toes hanging off the edge.

Step 2: The Pop Pop the tail down with your back foot while jumping up with both feet. As you jump, slide your front foot off the board towards the heel edge to initiate the kickflip.

Step 3: The Flip As your front foot slides off the board, flick it towards the toe side to initiate the kickflip. At the same time, use your back foot to spin the board 180 degrees in the opposite direction.

Step 4: Catch and Land As the board completes the spin, watch for it to come back around and catch it with your feet. Land with your weight over the bolts and roll away clean.


  • Practice the kickflip and 180-degree spin separately before attempting the varial flip.
  • Keep your shoulders level with the board to maintain balance.
  • Practice in a flat area before trying on a ramp or other obstacles.

With these steps and some practice, you'll be able to master the varial flip and impress your friends at the skate park. Happy skating!
