Help me with switch spins!
so i can do like switch 3's on smaller jumps, but when i go to something like a 40 ft, like half the time i catch my skis somewhere and end up on my side or i hardly spin past like 90. are you supposed to like totally clear the lip of the jump before you start your spin? like pop off the lip then spin, or set it all at once, like start the spin when you pop? and for bigger spins like past 5 what do you do? i heard pop off your right skis edge if your spinning left.
and one other question is with corked spins, im not sure what im doing, like i pop off the jump and and kinda tuck my head sideways and back so my body follows, am i doing a cork? or are corks more lead with your feet like you carve off any your feet are leading the rotation?
gotta get sw straight spins first, pop off ur right ski inside edge, and be hella patient so u don't hook ur tip on the lip of the jump
It's all good in the woods
switch spins are the easiest kind once you figure them out. Maybe you should practice with some nice, easy switch 1s and work your way up. Most of your trouble probably comes from the awkwardness of, well, riding backward into a jump when you're not used to it. Just stay on the balls of your feet with your eye on the lip and follow through with it like any other thing. Once you get used to it, bigger spins from switch are way easier. If you do it right you can just set the spin of the lip and pretty much sit there in the air.
dont rush it...
Racers - You don't own the mountain
Big Mountain skiiers - don't knock it if you havn't tried it
Park Rats - Its not about attitude
Mogul Skiiers - You don't know everything about skiing
Its about having a good time, don't be a generic robot!
