I know everybody which will read now the title will think "it's logical to jump on a skateboard when you try a trick, what an idiot" but this tip helped me acutally a lot.
I noticed that when i tried to learn 360 flips. I just couldn't really do it or just scoop it weirdly on the floor(flat). But then a friend told me "dude try to jump" and i was like "wtf ? i jump all the time".
So i tried it and omg this tip was sooo helpful. Since that day i acutally know how to 360 flip. My mistake was that i was just jumping forward and not up. I was jumping all the time but wrong.
So remember guys just jump up and with jump i mean the right way haha :D
I hope i could help some of you guys out there
