While the skateboard is flipping underneath you, it can be easy to lose your level. By that I mean, keeping your shoulders level with the ground, and pointed in the direction you are going. Try not to turn to the side, and try not to tilt your upper body, so that one shoulder is higher than the other. Staying level will help you when you land.
