SKI OR DIE
try spinning with a simple safety grab.
pop forward more, put your weight further towards your tips
you might be taking off without forward pressure, that can send you off balance.
ski you later ;)
word, if you do this and dont flail out of the position then you will come around fine.
load the front of your boots when you pop, its really hard to do when your shins kill for landing backseat, and when landing switch you want to try and landed flat footewd, not pushing your tips down, its tricky to get use to doing it but once you got it it feels so nice. and keep your hands forward as saiud above. maybe even start small. hope this helps, its hard to explane things over internet
passive people wait for winter, assertive people bring it to them
whenever I get that issue I just through in a grab (doesnt have to be can just be a tap at like half way through) just in front of safety
pop off of ur toes and keep ur head level
and keep your hands in front
pop off standing 90 degrees up... even though the jump puts you back like 20 or so, i like standing strait up when i take off.

ya i have the same problem on some. just practice- play around with different take off's and when you do one that lands good remember what you did and try it next time

Learn how to pop 3s just riding along. You will figure out how to pop forward, almost bio kinda (you dont actually get corked, but your popping your upper body in front of you) This is the only place I have had problems landing backseat regularly, and playing around with popping forward has ended my problems. duh, I guess, and off of jumps I realize its a little harder, but it isnt a problem for me. flipping straight over on the other hand. . .
How many snowboarders does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Enough, but how many NSers does it take to overuse a cool signature? about 10.
