i dont think ive seen anyone ever actually land a front flip from just standing on the ground. ive seen back flips but never fronts. and No you dont have to be able to do em on the ground.
" only the things you truly love will you persure with that energy, and for me; my family, and frinds, and skiing is what i have that is it for me, thats my life. The joy i get from skiing ...now thats worth dying for."
RIP man you will be missed.
