I got switch 5s over Christmas break and after dreaming of the switch cork 5 all summer I finally am thinking of trying it, they seem pretty reasonable since I see one in pretty much every edit I watch and it seems like you can spot your landing for the majority of it
How hard are they for someone who's never gone off-axis before?

we seem to be in the same boat, iv been wanted to do this trick all season so far just feeling like it would be so fun and easy, once i started trying switch tricks idk how easy it will be but man do it wanna try this trick, just need a good jump
they feel so nice! one of my favorite tricks to do. My advice is to almost wash out a bit on the take off (butter a bit) when learning them. Like other people said, sometimes they'll turn into a rodeo. Try and get your feet towards the landing right after taking off (watch tom wallisch "how to do a cork 3" because it's so similiar to what he says in it)
I havn't done one, although I know switch rodeos I feel that if you were to try a normal switch 5 and then go for the japan grab at once you would dip your shoulder and end up in a switch cork 5. Can't wait until my mountain opens a decent jump so I can try it!
who else thinks its funny that the blunt roll is at 4:20? -Oreopancake
do it!! once you get it it'll be your favorite trick. Also personally I like to find a jump that isn't very lippy, just a nice smooth take off that sends you further distance wise than it does height. The best part about sw cork 5's is that you can ease your way into how corked you want them to be. Once you get a sw cork 5, you'll get a sw cork 7 in the same day (sw 7 is actually a more natural trick)
I learned switch cork 5's like 15 mins after switch fives. they are so much easier. I had shitty sketchy switch pencil 5's and my coach told me to try corking it and I stomped my first one. super easy to spot it kind of feels like you are coming out of a backflip. It was also my first off-axis trick.
