Here today to explain the finer points behind the nollie backside flip is Santa Cruz and Ipath pro Shuriken Shannon. As a skatepark and street flip trick essential, the nollie backside flip is a key component for anyone's flatground or hip skating game. Watch here as Shuriken explains the central element on getting this one dialed—the shoulders. It's all about rotating those shoulders with your head—the body follows the eyes while your spinning so look where you want to go first and your body will follow. Give these some solid practice, lock em in and you'll be a better skater for it.
