Invert is a skateboarding trick where the skater grabs his board and plants a hand on the coping so that they are balancing upside down on the lip of the ramp.

Also known as: Frontside Invert / Backside Invert / Inverts / Handplants


A regular invert is performed backside, with the leading hand grabbing the board behind the front foot, and the trailing hand on the coping.


Variations of the invert come from where the board is grabbed and how the legs are arranged. Below are some examples.

Andrecht Invert
Egg Plant
Fall Guy Invert
Gymnasat Plant
Miller Flip
One Foot Invert
Sad Plant
Stelmasky Plant
