Probably the hardest trick to lear, the stuff took me 6 months. Anyways, when you go for the flip, jump up and watch it flip underneeth you. Stay over the board just keep your feet above it and wait till you see the griptape again and just stomp it.

you just got to pop it and make sure you control it with your front foot. Just keep trying its so frusturating but you'll get it.

to get the tail off the ground you need to focus on the ollie part. the flip comes from rolling the side of your front foot diagonally out of the ollie movement. make sure you keep the board underneath you, practice the speed of the flip, but most importantly always pop the ollie first.

It took me 6 months too. The way i learned and teach other people is not to do a kicking motion. poot your front foot under the first set of bolts. You only want your toes and a little foot on the board. Pop the tail as hard as you can and kick down and then to the side. While doing that lift your back foot up. you will not get alot of pop this way so don't really worry about catching it. I know this is the real way to do them but it is a good way to get used to the trick. Eventually you can work your way up to a more karate kick motion with more pop.
