nbreasinthat was an underflip/cork 5. you threw your head down behind you like a cork instead of up and over.
BLK.OUTUsing a few reference videos.
maybe I don't have a great eye for comparison but my rotation seems more similar to the flat 5 in these videos.
VinnieFfirst trick in this is an excellent flat 5
notice he never goes inverted.
BLK.OUTSup, I'm Braden. Been lurking for a bit but decided to make an account after sitting on this question for a few days.
Now, a bit of background. I've been skiing for 13 years and for most of my life I skied outside of the park. Id consider my skiing ability expert, experience with cliffs or steep runs and other all mountain terrain. Anyway, I started becoming interested in pursuing park 4 years ago and my most progressive season in the terrain park occurred last year when I was at school at CU. So, Ive got a diving background and feel really comfortable in air, however last season I never threw anything over a 360 due to snapping my clavicle mid season and having to play a reserved game for the rest of it.
The other day I went out to my tramp for the first time this summer and was throwing backies and then got it into my head hmmm maybe try a flat 3. Took me a few tries and ended up accidently landing a couple of what I thought to be flat 5.
Here's the video: https://instagram.com/p/6OLuP8sNGr/
My question is, did I do this right? Is this a correct flat 5? Am I doing anything wrong? It didn't really take me any practice to get down - I feel like I had to have been missing a piece to it. Also, how difficult is the transition taking tramp tricks to the snow?
Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself to the community, and get a little advice, let me know what yall think.
