  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 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.

  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 to make the board go up vertically. Have the board wrap completely around the toes of your back foot. You will have to guide the board with the back foot by maintaining contact. Keep the front foot out of the way throughout the whole trick.

  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. 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.
