A Switch Kickflip or Heelflip is simply a Kick- or Heeflip in your switch stance position. It’s also called Switch Flip! The switch stance position is the opposite position of how you would normally ride. For example if you ride regular with your left foot forward then switch would be riding goofy with your right foot forward and vice versa.
First learn to ride switch and do switch Ollies. Therefore, the difficult part is that you perform this trick with your untrained leg. But all it takes is patience and practice.
It will help you a lot if you know how to do a normal Heel- and Kickflip. You will notice that riding switch feels strange and different, because automatically your shoulders are more parallel to the board.
