Trickipedia is the general education page for skateboarding tricks started by the Berrics so that future generations understand the difference between frontside and backside and that there is no such thing as switch nollie half cabs. Each week one of Skateboarding's best will help fill Trickipedia's pages until it is the most comprehensive reference work on the planet. This week MikeMo Capaldi revisits nollie heelflips - this time in HD. Check out the original version handled by Matt Miller back on January 19, 2010. If you have any suggestions of who you would like to see do certain tricks in the future feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
