so i can stick a lincoln loop on a tramp like 7/10 times but the rotation feels very awkward and unnatural can anyone compare a lincoln on skies to trampline? does it feel more natural with forward motion or is it harder?
you have way more of a feeling to spin and flip on skis then to just flip like on a tramp... i can land lincolns on tramps 9/10 times on a tramp but when i take em to snow i usually end up doing overflips.
theyre just a little harder on skis cause of the added swing weight on your feet but all in all just get em dialed on the tramp and then find a good jump when winter rolls around or a nice powder landing and youll have it
I find them way more easy on the tramp, then a backflip for example ... can also concentrate on all kinds of graps while flipping. But on skis, it feel completely different. not so easy to spot the landing, as on tramp.
I've been wondering what a lincoln loop with a 180 is actually called, it's not a misty or rodeo (at least how i'm doing them), but def know the difference, just don't know the name. I have video, but don't feel like uploading it, Kevin Malone does them like crazy at the beginning of his edit on the surface site (surface skis.com - pick the one with the guy in the bandana and then (film 2), baller edit). I'm guessing is an over or underflip, but again, just not sure of the name of it.
i started doin them on tramps and was able to get them pretty much everytime, then i brought it to snow and it worked out, it does feel different because your goind higher and faster, just set it the same way and a bit more forwards since your not taking off straight, but at the incline of the jump,
