The 360 Flip (also known as a "tre-flip") is a skateboarding trick that looks similar to a kickflip, except that the board spins on two axis. That means that the 360 flip will flip like in a kickflip, but also spin 360 degrees like a 360 shuvit. If you are imagining a very sweet trick in your mind, then you're probably got it right!
360 flips are difficult intermediate skateboard tricks to learn, so you really need to be confident in a few areas before you learn to tre-flip.
- Skateboarding. Just riding around, but you want to be more than just basically comfortable.
You should be beyond Just Starting Out Skateboarding. You want to have a strong natural sense of balance and where the board is without having to look at it too much.
- Pop Shuvits
