I just learned the hard way on Wednesday that not all jumps are created the same and just because you can backflip on one jump doesn't mean you can do it on another.
So after landing a bunch two weeks ago, I tried them again on different kinds of jumps. Under rotated 3 times in a row on bigger jump with a much larger knuckle. I came up probably 6 inches short all 3 times and face planted or shoulder planted.
So I said fuck that jump and took it to a smaller jump with no knuckle and a steeper downslope and ended up over rotating it 3 times in a row.
Finally found the perfect jump at the end of the night where I could land it no problem but only got to hit it twice before closing.
I guess my point is, I have a long way to go before I can backflip any type of jump. I need practice learning how to speed up the rotation if need be or lay it out and slow it down so that I don't over rotate to my back.
I guess this just comes with experience. Learn something new every day on the mountain -- Wisdom is a powerful tool
