So I've been skiing park for a couple years now and can do 1s, 3s, 5s, and 7s on some big jumps but havent been able to cork them out at all. tried to do a few cork 5s last year but i guess corked too much or just didnt come out of the cork? Anyways, ive watched trick tips on it but just thought id ask if anyone has a good way to start to cork out spins. k+ for any kinda help or attempt.
Cork 7 is the easiest cork of them all, its all about commitment! If you commit 100% to landing it, you will most likely land it! Just watch edits that have cork 7's in them to see his they are there, and try to copy the movements, goodluck!
start out doing airplanes to the tramp, 360 to back drop, then once you get that start doing them so you land on your back 90° to the side of where you originally landed. Then start taking it even farther around to a little past 630 and land on your hands and knees. After that the next progression would be to take it to your feet. The take off is the most important, the initial take off for a cork is actually very similar to a flat spin. You need to drive your outside hip up in front of you and to the side. It can be argued that corks and flats are actually the same trick, only in a cork you would have already spun a 360 by the time you reach your apex, where as in a flat most of the spinning happens after the apex. That being said when you take off you want to initially be looking in front of you, then as you bring your hips up and around look at the tramp at 180. After this you essentially let your take off do the work as you come back around to your feet. I realize that may not have been worded in the best order but hopefully that will help.
Start with cork 7's on tramp. don airplanes (360 backdrops) untill you have them down. Then jump higher set an airplane a little harder and after 360 pull your knees in. once you have them down on tramps just go for it on snow, same set. And remember, Commit or eat shit.
The Three Laws of Thermodynamics
1. You can't win.
2. You can't break even unless it's really cold.
3. It never gets that cold.
A combo of these to vids is what got me through it. this visualises what has been said about about spinning 3 to your back and the whole spinning more than 3 onto your side for the progression stage, hope this helps.
I have recently changed mine up a little bit. to get the off axis rotaion, i used to punch down and around with my right hand, round my back towards my right ankle. Iv found it have become way smoother to do this a lot less and more, rip my left arm and shoulder out of the way. i dunno if that made any sense.
