HeartIs taking tricks straight from the diving board to snow a bad idea? I've got cork 7's, rodeo 5's, and flat 3's on lock diving, but I'm not sure if I should go balls to the wall and toss them on snow right away (I don't have access to a tramp). Anyone taken tricks straight to snow after diving? Tips? Horror stories?
Just find a properly built jump in your park that is suitable to try any flip with minimal consequence so in other words a jump that isn't small, but medium or large. I've done this with both a backflip and a flat 3 however I can tell you right now it definitely helps to have a good jump, I tried back flipping off a smaller one at Sunday river today and I landed it but it definitely wasn't as clean as it normally was, then I went for a flat 3 and idk what it was but it's a trick I'm comfortable on a trampoline and I've even done it on skis but on this jump just went up missed the grab opened up early and just slammed right on the landing. It was a small jump but when you come in hot to get enough air to flip, it hurt but not as much as how scary it was. Just felt like I was gonna land straight to my neck. I went back up and did it the try after but no where near as comfortable as they normally feel, but sack up and go for it you'll be surprised.
