To tre flip goofy on a skateboard, you will need:
- A skateboard
- Skateboarding safety gear
- A flat surface
- Start by warming up. Get into the flow of skateboarding and get your concentrating in tune with the coming trick. Relax and find a flat surface with a slight downgrade. You will want a little speed with this trick, but a lot isn’t needed.
- Move down the grade in a goofy stance (meaning with your left foot as your lead foot). Your lead foot should be just above the trick screws. The trailing foot should be in the middle of the skateboard.
- Jump up off the board, but as you do, kick the lead foot down. This will cause the board to flip. It will do one complete flip and land back on the wheels. This flip and motion is a tre flip. The fact that you led with your left foot is what makes it goofy.
