ok tuck and huck does it feel any differant from doing it off of a diving board/trampoling with skis on your feet
i can only do fronts on snow
but i can do a double gainer on a high diving board but i cant rotate enough on snow for some reason
yeah man okay heres the deal. find a spot you know has lots of snow and build an kicker before a pow day so you have a solid non breaky lip to try stuff off of. try and make the jump pretty poppy.
next get jacked. have some energy drinks, pump some tunes, whatever.
focus, but don't overthink.
tell yourself your gonna do it, then just kick a backflip out. the first few you may crash, but thats where having pow is great!
keep working at it, and don't be too scared- fear is the number one way to get hurt. remember- being timed equals going home disappointed!
good luck dude
my only experiences with backflips were not so good. it feels nothing like a trampoline, its like a gainer off a diving board but with weights on your feet. theres tricks (or flips) with much more style that dont require such forced momentum that i have grown to like more
