A hotflip is a sideways-flip wich quite easy to learn and to do, and it looks really great when done good.I would suggest to do this trick forward instead of fakie (wich is however also possible). You could practise on a jumpramp or in a foampit to get the hang of it. Make a lot of speed as approach. Prepare yourself as if you are going to jump a normal air. The side you are going to roll over is preferably the side you spin a (i.e) 360 the best. I spin best counter-clockwise so in my case it would be done like this: Drive up the ramp to the right, then tilt you body to the left. As soon as you tilt over, wrap yourself in kinda ball. Pray that you've got enough speed and height and watch the world tilt over as if being in a laundrymachine. As soon as you've passed the upsidedown sequence you should quickly unwrap yourself and prepare for landing. It might take a few times to land right without falling, but after landing on your feet once, you'll get the feeling very fast and this will be your most good looking trick. Keep trying.

    It's a side flip. Go up the ramp, lean sideways, tuck, stretch when you see ramp again, stretch out and land.

    I can do this not in blades, w/o tuck, over my trashcan, XMA thing called a double leg 540, fun shit.

    I’ve done this and I found if was the easiest on a 12 ft quarter pipe.

    Just a suggestion. Also, unmentioned by this writer, You should be able to do this atleast on a trampoline before attemping it on skates.
