TWS Topic: The Day When I Landed My Half Cab Flip
Half Cab Flip
Half cab Flip or Fakie Backside Flip is one of my sweetest flip tricks. To do this trick make sure you have a Half cab 180 and Kickflip it doesn't matter if you don't have a Backside Flip it's not needed. To do this you need to change your footings and ride to switch positions since my stance is Goofy I need to ride as a Regular footings. One of my secret recipes to perfect this trick is when I'm riding my deck my body moves slightly to 90 degrees and when I lock my footings I started to flip the board to 90 degrees and rotate my body to 180 degrees and catch my deck and roll away.
I don't want to say the Half Cap Flip trick is really hard for me it's a little bit easy than the regular Backside Flip. Backside Flip is really hard because it's a blind trick unlike the Half Cap Flip you can able to see your deck while flipping. I take more time to landed this trick perfectly because I never do that trick daily. As you can see in the image below I failed to catch the Half Cab Flip.
P.S: I've been playing skateboarding since 2005 and start filming and editing in 2011. On the TWS skate video, you'll find a random of tricks and behind skateboarding, we are not pro skaters we just skate for fun and I really love this.
