I mean it must be a lot harder judge the spinning momentum of a single flip than a double. It's like flipping a bottle in the air. It's easier to make the bottle flip twice and fall back into its original position where you catch it, rather than once. Just as it's easier to ride a bike fast rather than slow.
I only got this idea because my rollerblader mate was challenged by a skaterboarder to learn to skateboard because apparently there is no skill in rollerblading, and he learnt triple kickflips as his first trick....in a day lol...but it took him forever to learn to do single kickflips because he said they felt more fiddly.
I'm lucky, we have a lot of different terrain near me... incuding one of the best slide hills in the uk about an hours drive away.

Bah, i have perpetual rain now, had a week of snow in january ( which i managed to steal for some snowboarding ) but since then is an assault of rain. Three days ago it was sunny and the closer i was to home the more clouds would appear, and rain.
@Khaotikai GET AWAY FROM THOSE! Really, get some good RKP or TKP trucks, nice bushings and set them nice, will do you more good in long run that that rackety clanky piece of crap that will get worse from use, plus its high maintenance...
@Little Minion As far skateboarding tricks go, i dont know. I can ollie, and i can do boneless, apart from that, im useless, unless it's go-down-more-speed-dont-die.
