Landing switch before regular
ok does anyone here find landing switch esier than landing regular...cause i was was at blue and doing 5's and then tried 7 and couldnt do it , so i tried 9 and got it first try
yeah, i land switch better. My 5's are really smooth and i stomp them easily. but 3's i feel out of control. But my switch 3s are smooth. Basically landing switch just feels more natural
That was the DOPESHIT
i think its because its ok to land backseat switch, like it doesnt matter as much
i find landing switch is alot easier on the knees, back, and body overall. for example, i can case or just barely hit the knuckle on a large table switch and it is no where near the pain of casing it going regular. i love switch
now that i think about it, thats the same with me
but yea landing switch is sweet
i landed on my back once
same with me, i cased a HUGE 180 and i barely felt it but then i cased that jumpo again cause i was a lazy ass and it hurt like hell
Charmander is uber steezy, man he fuckin sends it dood!
yeah exactly and it doesnt really hurt as much when you fall backseat cus you can see what your doign
yeh, my switch landings are normally heaps easier. except yesterday when i knocked myself out on a 5

We've just been sittng around, eating pasta, and spending loonies and toonies on Kokanee and peelers.

its no difference for me.. landing regular is just kinda, boring... and its so fun to stomp switch!!!
yea i did too. bruised my tailbone and it still hurts and that was 3 months ago... all well its still fun

I like landing switch because I cant get shin bang as easily and it doesnt hurt when i overshoot jumps.
lol i landed on my back once, and i landed switch and cased and it hurt..
ya if im hiting a jump and i get the straight air down, with a kang of course, then i either 180 or 5 it, 360s always give me shin splints
also other than the lack of shin splints u can also spot your landing easily when landing switch
i find stomping landings easier switch, but id way rather overshoot/come up short forward. ive drilled myself in the face way too many times doin that switch.
