“Frontside Flip – Empire Park Skate Park”
A local skater named Shaun does a trick called a Frontside flip on the street obstacle course at Empire Park Skate Park in Newcastle, Australia.
To perform this trick, the skater hits the tail of his board on the ground while jumping up in the air – at the same time as sliding his front foot up and kicking his front foot off the side of his board on about a 45 degree angle. He extends that kick out as the board flips underneath him and pulls his legs up towards his chest at the same time, then when it has finished the rotation and is facing upright he puts his feet back on the board and prepares to land back on the ground.
