The name of the trick is similar to tricks on skateboarding and you need to know that this trick is inspired by skaters. If on a skateboard, kickflip is turning the skate board while walking and jumping, when on the surf, the surfboard turns in front of the G-land Surfing waves, bro!
Kickflips in G-land Surfing are quite a pain because the biggest and most likely risk is falling off the board or being 'eaten by the G-land Surfing waves'. Therefore, the rotating jump is quite a risk.
The rotation made from the kickflip is a full rotation from one end of the board to the other, bro. So, if you don't really master the surfboard, you will definitely fall, bro. This is also related to the power of the G-land Surfing waves!
