Front or Back
are front or back flips easier for you?
Back I'd say
we call front swap front 2s ellen d's cause they involve a lot of scissoring haha - .squirrely
backflips are physically 100x easier than frontflips, they're just mentally harder
Backflips are technically easier than 3's it's just the risk factor seems so much worse with backys
I really like to ski... Like really
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."

frontflips, mentally easier, and can be thrown off of almost anything, (see giray dadali talks gaper) backflips are mentally harder, but technically way easier if on a good jump
I want to throw both this year but I don't know which one to try first. I've heard its easier to do a back, but more forgiving when you try to throw a front.
I think it depends on you, for the most part, but the majority of people will recommend backflips simply because it's way easier to spot your landing (and you spot it way sooner, typically).
If you commit and look, you'll be fine on a well-made jump, for starters.
Some people find frontflips easier to commit to, and technically it can be a bit less risky depending on the feature you're attempting it from, as you said. It's the same principle as when most trampoline coaches will teach front tucks before back tucks.
Personally, i'd do a few on the tramp, and do a back first.
Back and personally I think front is riskier for me.
EVERYBODY LOVE EVERYBODY
back flips are way easier. you can spot your landing.
Back. If you can practice doing it into a bag, water or pow it will reduce the risk of injury and help you get used to the commitment.
i can do frontflips and there pretty hard. i would recommend learning a backflip. there much easier just the risk is a little higher if you dont do it correctly.
Thanks for the advice, I'll let you know how it works out
backflip with a pair of old short skis on a kicky pow jump and the margin for error is very small
im gonna go ahead and claim that that was the greatest middle finger ever. Everything was perfect, the stance, the extension, the swift flip, the form, etc. This guy is a pro. - nifty_shifty
I just fanboyed all in my pants. - AlbinoMoose after receiving a PM from Steve Stepp
what the fuck is a friendzone? tie that fucking skank up with extension cord in an abandoned horse barn and show her your fucking disco stick. that will teach her not to say "no" - pomme-de-terre$
Get a lippy jump lean back and pop try it on a powder day most lilkley you'll be scared out of your mind and close your eyes
