  1. Go at a normal speed. Not too fast when you are learning it, but not too slow either.

  2. Relax your body as much as possible.

  3. Place the toes of the front foot on just a few inches behind the front truck's bolts. Your front heel should hang off the edge of the board a little (towards the back).

  4. Place the entire back foot at the end of the tail. Your back foot's toes should hang off the edge of the tail (to the front) a little. The back foot is used for steering the board as you ride.

  5. Crouch and jump straight up scooping your back foot towards your back. Suck your front foot up to get it out of the way but make sure the upper and outer side of your toes scrape the edge of the board at the kink of the nose during this process. The back foot will make the board rotate horizontally a full 360 degrees (shove-it), the front toes will make the board to flip vertically a full 360 degrees (kickflip).

  6. As soon as you spot the board right side up and nose forward again catch it with both of your feet and land. You cannot force this trick, just like you cannot force a golf swing or anything that requires precision (archery, darts, shooting a basketball, pool, etc). You must do this trick as relaxed as possible.

  7. Once you hit the ground, absorb the impact by bending both legs slightly.

  8. Now here is the real secret: You must execute all these steps without thinking. Practice over and over until all these steps happen as a single motion due to muscle memory.
