explain rodeos please,
ive been trying them on my friends tramp but i dont know if its working cus i havent gotten to film it yet
Im confused, whats the difference between a misty 5 and a rodeo 5, i looked up both tricks and the look the same to me, i spin naturally both ways, but lets go with left, when i pop i spin 90 to the left drop my right shoulder so that my back is flat with the ground, my feet come back undeme and finish with a second 90 to switch, like Pete O. in "Yeah Dude" or "anomaly", I believe that is a misty 5, bt the rodeo 5 looks the same in the above video.
Im struggling getting the guts to try a rodeo this year, and i want to know how to prepare for them. i can do them on the tramp no question, its just a matter of having more air time and skis on.
Ya know rodeo is one of the toughest tricks to teach. Its a lot like the misty. A lot of kids mix up Flat spin (ski rotates like this in a circle = flat ) and Rodeo (ski rotates like this in a circle ll vertically with your back down ). So making sure you know the trick well enough helps allot.
1st talk to whom ever at your hill and ask them to make you a TABLETOP jump not a step down. step-down bad for learning tricks to much impact. about 30 feet with a 60 foot landing. double you table length is perfect for learning tables. and a nice rolling knuckle , nothing sharp.
ASK YOUR PARENTS IF THIS IS OK FIRST AND PULL YOU BED AWAY FROM THE WALL, MAKE SURE IT WONT SLIDE
rodeo is all about diving forward from the jump and rolling onto your back.
stand at the foot of your bed. (Not beside like the misty)
dive and spin onto your bed as if your going to lay down on your back with your head on the pillow. try it with a japan once you get it good. the japan helps pull in that side of your body and pull the trick around.
once your laying on your back looking at the ceiling, wiggle to the top of the bed. look over your shoulder and you should see the floor aka landing
now pull your feet over to the floor and you should be facing back to the foot of the bed.
now i know you where asking how to get the guts. do this many times and visualize your self in the third person, first person, follow cam guy whatever it takes. till you see your self doing it and when you do get the ballz to try remember CCCR
