Helps on Lincolns undergoing and frontflips!
I can back flip and ive done 3 underflips on accident then a weeklater I tried dooin them perpusly and couldn't. And last year I tried so many Lincolns and only landed two wayyy back seat. So I was wanting some advice on how to Lincoln underflip and frontflips!
Underflip.: As usual, pop then set the trick. If you spin left, start a slow spin (theoretically, you're shooting for 180 on an under 5). Look towards the outside edge of your left boot almost like you're grabbing safety. This will set the lincoln part of the flip. Continue the lincoln and try your best not to panic. You will be very slowly spinning, and flipping a lincoln fairly quickly. Around 360/450 you'll start to see the landing... however if you look closely you should see the knuckle most of the way but you may miss it the first few times. Stomp that shit at 5 like a playa. Underflip 5's are very very easy and smooth if you set them correctly. An underflip is purely derived from takeoff.
And I now realize you posted the cork thread earlier, good luck on both. I personally learned cork 7's before underflips, but to each their own, do whatever you feel most comfortable with. Good luck.
Ya I'm in the mood for trying stuff haba thanks. For your help man! any tips on lincols I've failed so many times
you have to think about lincoln loops like cartwheels you really want to set it as straight as possible as if its a big kicker you will over rotate and do more of a rodeo 5. so find a kicker which is not too whippy (as this will buck you back making it more rodeo like) get comfortable with it. i did my first on a 15 ft kicker so fairly low risk but a little hucky i would say 20 is nice . pop, and set for it throwing your feet out as sideways and up, and drop the shoulder of the opposite side you are going (so like if your throwing your feet out left you want to drop your right shoulder and vice versa) i find going for safety/lui kang helps in dropping my shoulder and tucking, then its a case of commiting to it and not freaking out in the air (i do this every now and then) if your doing it right you wont really lose sight of the knuckle and as you come round to about 3/4 of the way round start to open up and at this point you will have an idea of if you have over/under rotated it (not a terrible thing as you can get away with landing off centre balance) stomp the shot out of it and ride away like a boss. just because of the rotation type they are low risk if you commit and low risk to over/under rotate a bit. if you dont get it first time either set it a little harder or softer depending on how the rotation speed was and in a couple of goes you will have it dialed then its just a case of slowing it down the bigger you take it. once you get them they are super fun and are a good start to rodeos and mistys
