normal kick flip maybe well most likely it can also be easy off stairs because you have more time on the air
first you kick then you flip
It's easier to kick flip just on flat because it will not hurt as much if you had fallen off down stairs. To kick flip off stairs you'll have to have a lot of speed to actually clear the steps clean and you will have to suppress your legs to absorb the impact so just stick to kick flips on the ground for now.
