Arguably the most common trick from a missleg is the btwist. This can be performed from any number of tricks where the outside leg lands first, and is often used to change the direction of travel in a combo. It is not uncommon for trickers to mistakenly think of a missleg btwist as a unique trick, rather than a simple btwist from a different transition. Typically in a missleg, the in-air leg will make a check-mark or “V” shaped line, which is the easiest way to differentiate a missleg from another singular transition, including the missleg’s secondary form, the rapid.
Another old term that isn’t really used very often anymore, known as the Flagella, is simply a round kick that frontswings into btwist or aerial. It was so named because the in-air leg tends to flail around like the whip of a flagella. Traditionally, this has been thought of as a missleg transition, but it actually functions more closely to a swingthrough when done efficiently. The movement is continuous and fluid, and the leg never really fits the profile of the missleg transition. It should be noted that this is not a special trick, it is only a btwist or aerial from a very specific setup.
