To put it simple a heel flip is where you kick your foot forward to do a 360 degree flip of the board. A kick flip on the other had is where you kick your foot backward to do a 360 degree flip of the board. It's that simple.

Is it easier to kick flip off of stairs or to just kick 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.

It's 100% FREE! why the hell did you say nollie flip? that ain't a trick. its a category. nollie flip is any flip trick done at the front of the board while you are in your normal stance. this could be a nollie kickflip, nollie heelflip, or even a nollie 720 flip. and other tricks are godzilla railstance, Jesus flip, forward flip, fs laser flip, bs 360 flip, nightmare flip, bs 360 kicklfip, pressure flip, 360 pressure, and on and on and on... there are a lot though. but o well cuz you will learn them as you go. hoped all of this kind of helped. Nollie flip is a trick, that's the way skaters say it now for nollie kickflip Alright, so if you want to learn how to kickflip you first need to know how to ollie, and ollie well, when you can do that. You have your backfoot in the same place as an ollie and your front foot on 3 inches behind the bolts with your heel hanging off alot. Then you pop the board, and as your foot is sliding up you flick out, which causes the board to spin. Also, you don't have to slide your foot all the way to the end of the board, you can end at the bolts, that is how I landed my first one. Also, when I was first kickflipping, if you are really only trying to land it, then try not to flick your foot out as much, but flick it downward, if you know what I mean. Not out, but down. And don't forget to jump high and commit. When you see the grip, stomp your feet, bend your knees, and roll away, or you could look it up on youtube. Another good place to look it up on is ehow. Well some of u forgot the tree kickflip and things like that
