There are three main ways to casper. Now if you can already rail stand, the easiest to learn will be the rail to casper. Get in the heel side in the rail stand and then hang your back to off quite a bit. With all your weight over your back foot, bring your front foot down by the grip side of the board. In one motion, half a little bit towards the tangle and tip the board over. Scoop the board up with your front foot and hold it. It might help to spend the board backside a little bit to get a good catch.
A second way to casper is with the half kick foot. set your feet up in a comfortable kick foot position and pop the board pretty light. Now your front foot is going to do a few things at once. It needs to push the board forward so you’ll land over the tail and has to cradle the board. The flick is a semi circle that flips the board then goes down and under it to catch the casper.
The last way to casper is very similar to the heel side rail stand but the board is flipped twice as much. Stand up in a very exaggerated the heel side rail stand full position with your back until hanging far off the board and your front toe on the heel side ready to pop down. Start to pop the heel side of the board downwards but at the same time, push it forward so will land balance over the tail. By the time the board is at 90 degrees, your back foot should be in contact with the tail starting to push it down. just like in the rail to casper, your front foot should scoop under the board and pull it up.
There are a few things to keep in mind with caspers. Your front foot should never touch the ground throughout the entire trick and your back foot should be as close to the back truck as possible so it doesn’t rest on the ground either.
There are two main ways to land caspers. Top land them straight, start shifting your weight over the middle of the board that hop and pull your front foot up to get the board right side up again. Most people like to do a 2:08, which is just as easy. Your front foot pulls the board up as your back foot pushes it behind you t get the full rotation.
