How to casper on a skateboard:
- Place your back foot on the skateboard tail. Your lead foot will be just over the edge of the skateboard deck and just below the front trucks. It is important that the lead foot be at an angle and mostly off the board. Placement to high or low on the board will cause you to fall.
- The back foot will not move, it kick flips the tail. Bend the knees and jump. As you do, kick flip the board and move your lead foot around (or circulate). Your lead foot should almost make a U-turn motion as it pulls off the skateboard and around.
- This motion will place your lead foot over the skateboard as it comes down. Stick the front foot and back foot back on the deck of the skateboard. Land, bending the knees and controlling the board with both feet, sticking the casper.
