This trick is made of two words. Varial and Kickflip. A varaible would be a complete 180 horizantal rotation of the board. A kicklip would be a complete rotation of the board. When the board rotates you should see the underside. When these two manuevers combine you have formed a Varial Kickflip. That was a freakin' huge definition and I'm surprised you stuck around for the whole thing.
Go watch a 411 for an example.
something that you do or what you see other people do when you or they cant tre flip worth shit. the varial kickflip usually looks good best when you do it down a large gap or flight of stairs. it also can look decent flat if you pop it really high.
the majority of people who do varial kickflips are kids 10-16 years old which pretty much are novice skaters who kinda suck and cant tre flip.
Once you get tre flips this tricks is usually forgotten and is mostly busted out by good skaters in a game of skate when they've run out tricks to do to their opponent.

A skateboarding trick in which the board flips and spins at the same time. Widely infamous because it doesn't 'look cool'.
