Non-trolling/shitstorm question about trick-calling!
I just have one question about tricks like misties, rodeos, or corks and bios, are theycalled by the direction you huck your body? (forward or backwards) Or by the direction of your body in relation to the lip of the jump? (flipping towards or away from the lip) because I have seen it called both ways, I'm just looking for a clear answer as to which one is the official way! +K for legit answers!
Misty - Forward, feet over head
Bio - Forward, feet do not go above head. Aka forward cork
Cork - Backwards, feet do not go above head.
Rodeo - Backwards, feet go over head
Flatspin - Backwards, feet get on same level as head and rotation is on your back.
It shouldn't really matter.... they should be the same?
Unless you are talking about going switch vs regular, then all rules and guidelines are sort of out the window. Switch skiing is unlike any other sport where you are actually moving backwards and your body works a different way, not just moving a different direction of sideways.
Look up the trick definition thread.
Thanks for the effort hahaha, but I knew these, I was just wondering about like, if you're skiing switch does that change what the tricks are called?
I'm talking about switch vs regular, probably should've included that in the op.. my bad! but thanks, I will, I'll look to see if this is defined there! + k!
misty, cork, bio, rodeo, flatspin are in relation to the lip of the jump (for example, you lead with your head downhill for a misty, and you lead with your head downhill for a sw misty). Backflip and frontflip are in relationship to your body position (you lead with your head downhill for a frontflip, and you lead with your head uphill for a sw frontflip).
Yeah, it's weird.
Its the direction your body travels. Think about a switch frontflip. In a switch misty your body would go the same way.
It doesn't change what it is called but it changes how you have to throw it. I.e to throw switch rodeo you have to throw is forward like a misty which brings it up and around once you get forward
okay sweet, this right here ^^ is what I wanted to know! +k to you good sir!
