When I do a inside kick with my right foot and then while the bag is in the air my left foot goes over top of the bag and I hit it again with my right foot?

You're doing either Mirage, reverse Mirage, or Dragonfly. If you finish with a toe stall, its either the first or second, depending on whether your left foot goes around the bag right-to-left or left-to-right respectively. If you finish with a jumping inside kick (similar to a flying clipper, or "jester") than its the Dragonfly. If this is neither of the examples above, than you might say that it falls in-between them, and is not a common enough move that I know what others who have done it named it. In any case, this is an important fundamental move of freestyle footbag. Good work. Try doing two or even three in a row. And also try this move with your leg going in the opposite direction.

It sounds more like a dragonfly because it doesent seem in your description that there is a real dex going on in the move.

A dragonfly involves a "real" dex.

Well, yes, but, most people cheat a little bit and just pass over the bag instead of around, at least with most people i've seen do it.

Try to download the Mirage, Reverse Mirage and the Dragonfly Kick from the Czech Singlet Tricks website. Then check which one you do Smile

Also, getting a closer look at the Freestyle Section of footbag.org might be VERY VERY helpful. Here is the link:

Its a Dragon Fly Kick,one more question when I looked at the clipper kick it looked how I kick it. Then I looked at just the clipper and it looks like a very short stall and then hit it? Am I right or what?

Basically yes. You can preform a clipper by just hitting it, or by cushioning it and stalling it, then hitting it back up.

Clipper Kick
Kick the footbag with the inside surface of the foot with the kicking leg tucked behind the support leg.

Clipper
Delay the footbag on the inside surface of the foot with the catching leg tucked behind the support leg. Bend the support leg deeply and lean slightly over this leg for balance.
