i just cant hit them anymore.. on the tramp.. any tips?
it would be cool if harvey made like a e-book with evreybody's advice on doing tricks.. maybe a new forum section..? whatever, ill let you guys carry the idea if if you like it.
welll first of all harvey is gonna be gone for a while but I think thats a good Idea....
But for mistys I just go do a front flip and when I'm about 1/5 to 1/4 of the flip. then I just punch realy hard to the way I wanna spin and let me other arm fallow threw my back...
I'm sorry Cryss
gateskate, I know how you feel.
I too used to be able to do misties on the tramp, one day I just lost em...I have been looking for them for a while, but everytime I try one, I do some crazy weirdo flip. Once in a while, I am able to do them, but then I just lose them again. I just hope to understand why I am doing the werido flip and hopefully I will get it back and keep it.

when i throw mistys on tramps and skis i throw my right shouylder into my left hip.. and just keep your head turned
i too am a victim to the weirdo flip,i used to be able to do them and land 8 or 9 out of 10,now.....weirdo flip!!!oh well i did learn rodeos instead
Yeah I learned rodeos then wanted to do backs and it felt like I was doing side backs but it was just a weirdo flip.

yea i used to just do weirdo flips but now i can do misties. What is this trick?I throw my shoulder down and to the side 90 degrees so my back is parralel with the tramp then do a licoln loop/back flip and finish the last 90 by turning my head during the loop so that i land like i would a backflip
I hate losing tricks. It's so frustrating. Anyways, its all about visualization. Visualize the rotation and then do it. It works pretty well.
watch a bunch videos in slo-mo, and get the trick back in your head, then you should have no problem.

Exactly! I find that this works really well, I mean if you watch a trick in slo-mo enough, you can just feel it.

When Harvey taught me to do a misty flip for the first time, he told me to put your hand up (like you are asking a question), and then throw your hand across your body. It worked really well for getting the movement.

yeah, but you look like you suck if you do that.
My mistys have turned into bio spins on the tramp. but recently i rediscovered the misty so i can do both of them now, its pretty cool.

i cant do misty's on snow anymore...i do bio's instead....but when you're trying to learn a misty on a tramp...do progressions...start by jumping and go forward (like you're doing a stomach drop) then turn your body so that you're purpendicular to where you started and land on your back, let the rotation keep going and bounce up to your feet....once you get that, do it all at the same time
and to get extra 180 and turn it into a misty 7, lead with your other arm (if you spin to the left, lead with your left) and keep looking around
spot your landing!!!!! think about a misty 5 as rolling your back across a table, it is really easy on the tramp.
