YoFlip_Dontdoit_Jenkem_WorstYoflip

If you frequent any skate park at all from time to time, you have probably seen a shitload of kids (and sometimes even adults, as much as it pains me to say) spend all day trying to get their 360 flips to have the infamous “Yo flip” effect to it. But what is a Yo flip you ask?

A Yo flip is a 360 flip with an exaggerated front foot catch. This is usually done by catching the board with your front foot while stretching your back foot out as far back as it can go. Apparently, “the more you get the back foot out, the more buttery it is, dawg.”

I’ve seen skaters go as far as landing the trick with their front foot and riding away for a full one or two seconds before putting their dangling back foot on. Yo flips rarely, if ever, look good, as opposed to a naturally caught 360 flip (For example, please see Kalis footage). They look contrived and unnecessary, and if anything they should be banned from skateboarding. But despite this, the fad continues to thrive in skateboarding today for some odd reason….

1. Felipe Gustavo – One word: Atrocious.

2. Furby – Oh yeah, that looks totally natural.

3. Dylan Rieder – Just look at Dylan in all his handsome glory and wash the pain away.

4. Theotis Beasley – Theo has been called “the nicest kid in skating” by many.
Still, that doesn’t excuse him from this abomination of a Yo flip.

5. Cody Mcentire – So steezed out bro…

    I WISH I COULD YO FLIP ABOVE MY OWN FACE, SO THAT WAY WHEN I DONT WEAR PANTS AND TREY FLIP I CAN EXPEL SHIT ALL OVER MY OWN FACE. THEN, AFTER STEAMING MY FACE WITH DOO DOO I WOULD PROCEED IN BUYING A PAIR OF AIRSPEEDS. AFTERWARDS, I WOULD THEN GLUE TACKS TO MY INSOLE TO INSURE THE BEST GRIP. FINALLY I WOULD GO TO THE SKATEPARK EVERYDAY AND MASTURBATE ONTO LEDGES CLAIMING THAT MY WAX IS THE BEST AND I WOULD CONTINUALLY DO THIS UNTIL EVERY OLD DUDE AT THE PARK STOPS WEARING KNEE HIGH SOCKS, CUT OFF DICKIES, DRINKING ONE BEER WHILE SKATING BECAUSE THEY CANT SLASH COPING UNLESS THEYRE BUZZED, TALKING ABOUT INDIES AND HOW THEY ARE THE ONLY TRUCK TO RIDE, RIDING ONLY ANTI-HEROS AND OLD SKOOL VANS AS WELL, AND TALKING ABOUT ONLY TRANNY AND DISMISSING YOUNG NAIVE TALENT BECAUSE ITS NOT WHAT HAPPENED BACK IN THE DAY. I WOULD THEN SHIT ALL OVER THEIR FACES IN AN ATTEMPT TO ENLIGHTEN THEM. ONCE I REALIZED I WAS SHITTING ON MY OWN FACE AT THE SKATEPARK WITH SEMEN EVERYWHERE I WOULD GO HOME AND CRY MYSELF TO SLEEP WITH HALF NAKED PHOTOS OF JASON DILL.
