I tried my first cork 7 today on gaper day and this was my result. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHPNfsFiOsI&feature=youtu.be and I was wondering what i was doing wrong because I didn't come around at all. I am aware that this isn't the tricktip forum but the reason I didn't post this thread on it was because that forum is dead.
With your leading shoulder you are throwing across and down your body. What you want to do to throw cork 7 is drop your inside shoulder (left for you spinning left) as you throw, and look back and down towards the tail of your skis. While doing this you want to push your hips forward, sort of like when you do a backflip but not as hard. A lot of it is in the hips, when I was learning I was having serious difficulty getting them off axis enough, someone told me to throw my hips forward, first time I did that it was a stomp. Also as said above bigger jump. Always easier to learn a trick when you aren't trying to huck it
