JustinG7So my parents won't let me backflip and they think I need a coach. Despite the fact that on a trampoline I can land a backflip every time, and my backflips on the trampoline are the ones that you jump staight up and tuck at the peak of your jump. Also they think I'm going to break my neck or something like that. So what do I do to convince them to let me do a backflip and that I don't need a coach, what did your parents think of you backflipping, how did your fist backflip go, and did you have a coach?
It makes sense honestly. I'm not saying it's reasonable, but they likely don't understand the sport. They see the negative side. You getting hurt, breaking new equipment, not being able to use the pass they bought you etc. It seems like an unnecessary risk. They probably aren't watching park edits of people throwing down, but if somebody get's hurt or killed skiing, it probably grabs their attention.
Honestly just do it. I mean I'm just some stranger on the internet but I would. In my opinion, ultimatums like that, though understandable, are dumb. If you can do it on a tramp, you can do it on skis. If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.
Don't ask for permission to learn tricks, maybe don't even tell your parents you're thinking of trying a trick. Don't mention the 270 on you're trying to learn. Share it with your friends, share it online, but if your parents are the kind that worry relentlessly and will write up a list of tricks you can and can't do based on nothing, it's better they don't know some things.
Build/ find a jump, straight air it, imagine the flip, visualize it with the airtime and pop the jump.
I'm not one to say, rebel against your parents, actually rebel against your parents.
Get a tattoo, graffiti your neighbors house, rob a store, etc
