360-flip/Tre Flip/3-Flip/Tre BombEdit
A combination of a backside 360 pop shove-it and a kickflip. Invented by Rodney Mullen, during his great age of skating. A 360 Flip is a skateboarding trick in which the skateboarder kicks the board to initiate a kickflip and spins the board backside in a 360 shove-it, thereby doing a kickflip and 360 backside shove-it simultaneously. While Rodney invented them Jason Lee is the man who made them famous. During the finals of the 2013 Portland Street League, Shane O'Neill perfectly landed a switch double 360 flip, an incredibly hard trick to land.
1-The rider sets up like a kickflip,but with the back foot more like a pop shove it. Many have most of their back foot in the curve where the concave meets the tail to get a good scoop.
2-The rider pops the board like a pop shove by scooping it backwards in a pushing motion while at the same time kicking the front foot forward to start it kicking.
3-The rider sucks the knees into his chest so they don't hit the board.
4-Catch front foot the back foot because that's how you land 360 pop shuvits.
