I'm sort of having trouble wrapping my head around what a cork is exactly. I can identify one in any video, i'm just not sure how to explain it to someone it words. I skate board so when i learn a trick like a 360 flip for example i know that it is a combination of a 360 shove it and a kick flip. Then i can combine both of those tricks in my head and visualize what it would look like under my feet. Next season I would like to try corks but I'm having a hard time visualizing what it would look like from my point of view. This is probably a dumb question so i expect some hate but I couldn't find anything in the search bar. Any help would be great! Thanks.
Yup, still have it bookmarked because it's a pretty damn good/brief explanation of the differences. Also, I'm not sure if the video examples still work or not, but those were clutch. Seeing multiple examples as clips really helps wrap your head around how to set spins/what they should look like/etc
No, no, no. NS is just like one big inbred family from Kentucky arguing over who gets to wrangle pigs the next day.
you know how you described a 3 flip in skating as a 3shove it at the same time as a kickflip? think of a cork 7 as a 3 at the same time as a backflip...but not inverted
that's the GENERAL concept-- im sure someone's gonna nitpick me here but what i described (3 plus backie) was a dspin 7 (antiquated term nowadays), and a cork 7 is just a non inverted dspin. very similar tricks/sets.. corks can vary from a little off axis to very off axis but the same concept is going on there and our naming system takes care of that
