whats the deal.. Should i try/learn them in/out? Flats.. foot placement? what goes thru your head before you throw it? where do you think your weight placement is? Flatten off or edge thru in out?

Drop some science on this equation peeps

I honestly havent really tried them much but.. The trick tip section of ws.com is long over due some trick tip activity. INPUT PEOPLE plz. & thnx

I learned them I/O first, that's what I'd recommend. It gives you a feel for how the trick should be thrown, foot placement, ect.

I put my front foot about 3/4 of the way up the board, with just a bit of my toe hanging off. For I/O put on a mellow edge, pop the board in a big front shuv, and slide your foot off the front. Try a few straight heelflips first to get the feel for how your foot should be interacting with the board.

Here's a clip of one of the first flats ones that I did that made me smile.

do you really hang your heel off that far like you would on a skateboard? seems really unstable on a wakeskate
