Crank flips

I've been trying to learn crank flips for a while now. I'm having a lot of trouble though flipping the cranks... Any advice?

I like the tutorial of relentless by fate
so I don't think my tutorial can help a lot more,
it doesn't really explains how to flip it, but it gives some nice tips I guess

Yeah when Shaun made the first crankflip tutorial, I was stumped for a long time on how to actually make the cranks flip haha. Its easy in theory and some people figure it out instantly, but I couldn't haha. Wasn't untill I tried footplants (not zero plants) that I figured out how to kick.

When I landed my first cranksflips, it was before I could convince my parents to buy me shin pads. So I used to wrap towels around my legs xD. Ahhhhh the old days . I wish 180 double, 360flip and fifthflip were still the hardest tricks :P Things were so much simpler...
