Hey everyone, ok so I can backflip fine on really small jumps (7ft-10ft) but what I do is throw it really hard and tuck in, so I am wondering how to do them off larger jumps (20-30ft) should i just pop, and lay it out?
This is what I've seen a lot of pros do and what helps me, like said above, pop and flip so you don't stall, but to avoid tucking, use both arms in a superman type situation and they'll help you control your flip so you don't over rotate and die.
Pop the same way you would do a vertical jump off of the ground to get the height, immediately look back to rotate, as soon as you spot the landing adjust your legs to tuck or extend to get the skis in the landing zone. Spot the landing is key
Definitely don't throw really hard. Pop and push your hips to the sky. Do not just throw your shoulders back as you will have less control over your flip and it will look sketchy. Spot the landing and adjust as necessary. Stomp.
But then you avoid an ideal opportunity to turn your single into a double.... Were if you just learn the hard way and just try and do what you do on a small jump, on the big jump then you will probs over rotate which leads to double which leads to $$$profit$$$ which will get you all the ladies...
But for real, just pop like usual but instead of tucking use your head and arms to control the speed that you flip and then even your head out and do some last minute adjustments with your legs to land clean
