The MFM is a combination of a nollie frontside 180 and the Tail butter frontside 180.
We have a whole tutorial on the Tail butter 180s so make sure you’ve watched and learnt
that first. Static Board Off
The easiest way to get your head around this trick is to start by jumping the movements
with your board off. Step 1: Nollie frontside 180.
Step 2: Nollie tail butter frontside 180. Step 3: The basic MFM movement is a combination
of these 2 prerequisite tricks. Begin by opening up frontside as if your gonna
nollie a frontside 180, at about 90 degrees nollie from your front foot landing in a butter
on your back foot, then ollie from your back foot completing the frontside 180 to land
switch. This is the basic movement required for an MFM butter, so practice this step a
several times. When you break it down with your board off it becomes simple. Step 4: A more advanced MFM butter uses the
same movements with a shift of your board in the middle for style.
This time as you roll up for the nollie, go past the 90 degree mark, nollie from your
front foot and shift back slightly in the opposite direction, landing on your back foot
then ollie from your tail completing a counter-rotated front 1 to land switch.
Pay close attention to the difference between the basic MFM movement happening at around
90 degrees and a more advanced MFM movement incorporating a shift back while in the air.
