Miller flips are sick. Have bossman Tyler Chorlton show you how to do ‘em over an obstacle or off a knuckle.
In case you were wondering, the trick gets its name from skateboarder Chris Miller (who also founded Planet Earth, don’t you know). Miller skated a lot of vert in the days when street skating was embryonic and Rodney Mullen still wore knee-length socks… anyway, we digress. He was the first to start pulling frontside invert 360s to fakie on vert and the trick, from that day forth, bares his name.
Of course, us snowboarders have a long history of bastardizing skate tricks to fit our own strapped in, truckless, kicker hitting heathen needs, so we’ve taken to calling any frontside 360 inverted handplant a Miller flip. /geekmode
Anyway, Tyler’s got a nice ‘tash and offers up some good tips in this. Check it…
