    I know there has been countless threads on Crankflips but I'm unsure any
    of them would be any help to me.
    I have no problem with no footers but when I attempt to crankflip I
    can't get enough height because the foot I use to kick down stays down.
    I also always end up in front the uni instead of above it.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated,
    Thanks as always,
    Jas'o

    slow down. Sounds like your going kinda fast to end up in the front of
    the uni. Pedal alittle slower and just flick it down by leaning over
    the uni and applying pressure downwards not forwards and downwards.
    Then pop up and keep your eyes on the cranks, they should come around.
    This trick is an easy trick once you hit it your first time, the first
    time is hard because of fear, the cranks will be there if you kick it,
    now all that's left is to stick over it. Good luck, hope I could help.

    Hey Shaun, while you are here (well you aren't anymore but yeah) do you
    have any tips for the doubleflip? They really don't like me and at the
    moment I really don't like them either...

    Kick the crap outta that pedal. Lean more, jump more, and just kick
    everything you can to let that thing spin twice. You're going to need
    more force so using the groudn to build up resistant pressure against
    your foot is needed, right before the last moment of the foot snapping.
    Then it should come around. Pedal kidna quickly, adn try if you can
    (this really helped me attemp triple flips) to push down and whip your
    foot kinda back, so it gives it a snap effect. So the foot goes down
    and starts coming back on the toes to hook the pedals around. This
    makes teh pedals go really fast. but yeah, good luck.
