THEDIRTYBUBBLEI thought the axis' were reversed for switch tricks. Therefore a switch cork would be thrown over the shoulder towards the landing.
KreechWait, so if sw rodeo and sw cork are almost the same, just with varying degrees of inversion, then is there even such thing as a sw flatspin or is that just not a real trick?
Dunderflipswitch rodeo is thrown like a misty, etc.
BROLFA good switch rodeo isn't thrown like a misty, it feels more like spin first and let your feet come up in front of you at 180.
MinggSorry not sorry for this newbish question.
So for switch off-axis spins do skiers set it the same way? Or are they different axis's altogether? For a normal (left) cork 7 I know you would set it backwards and down a little bit, like you'd be reaching for blunt/tail. At least thats how I do it on tramp. So when you go to do a sw cork 7 would you still set it back like that? Or would it be set forward since you'd be backwards on take off?
KazabazuaI agree with both of these statements. It depends what kind of rotation your doing - If you're doing switch rodeo 5 you throw it a little bit like a misty. If you're throwing a switch rodeo 10 you put a lot more spin in it or else you'll end up doing a double or landing on your face.
BROLFHave you ever actually seen a switch rodeo 10? not sure anyone could do it without it just being switch cork 10
