this is my biggest obsticle this year i need to try them but im gona build a jump at my friend VT house to try it first before it try it on a "normal park jump"
Some people are too scared to try backflip, but once you did it one time, there is no prob doing it again and again
this guy knows what hes talkin bout...
listen to him, blast some metal on your ipod, and just commit, commit, commit!!!
id say at least 60-70% of the difficulty factor of a backflip comes from your own fear of crashin.
and thats just the thing, if you tell yourself you can do it and fully commit to it, you will almost certainly get it first try, or second....it takes a few to get the rotation and timing down..
hope that helps
and buildin a kicker into some pow for the first couple would be adviseable before you take it straight to the park.
good luck bro and get it on video so when you make that backie your bitch, you can post it here and get some crazy props for throwin your first backflip!!!
I know people that don't regularly ski or snowboard and don't know shit all about freestyle or anything and they can do backflips.
