YES! That's exactly what I was looking for. The difference between a Lincoln and a Rodeo seems to be that the Lincoln is fully inverted. But yah this trick looks sexy as fuck I'd love to see it nice and floaty over a bigger jump.
think about it. a switch rod 5 is like a misty motion as if you were going forward. and the corresponding trick to misty is an overflip, but no one ever says that, because misty 5 and overflip are the same thing. so now you are going backwards, that misty 5 becomes a switch rod 5, so your overflip becomes a switch underflip. it just looks identical to a switch rodeo 5
I still think there is a difference between the underflip and rodeo 5 though. Like, sometimes when I throw a Lincoln I throw it more flatter and tucked. Other times, I throw it like this where it is real straightened out and fully inverted.
Are you guys telling me if I were to throw this switch it would no longer be a switch lincoln but a switch rodeo instead? And if I were to add a 180 it would be a sw rodeo 5 and not a sw underflip 5? Nothing about my body motion in the air reminds me of a rodeo (which I've never even tried on a tramp or snow).
That's another good example. I feel like at the end of the day the difference between a lot of these tricks is minimal (ie: <45' rotation/off axis). If I can learn something close to this this Summer at camp I will be happy -- I don't really give a fuck what it is called to be honest.
I can't embed I'm on mobile but Eric pollard seems to do one at 4:11 here
P.S. check out 3:52 for a sick cork 3 or check the whole edit if you're that cool
Double P.S. if someone embedded this for me it would be awesome
Jesus guys you don't know the difference in your tricks??? A backflip a front flip and a Lincoln are all done in a straight axis: your legs go OVER YOUR HEAD. So a flair, front flair, and under flip means your skis go over your head when youre rotating. What makes a rodeo and a misty different is that there is no straight axis you're rotating in: your feet make a circular arc around you and NEVER GO OVER YOUR HEAD, despite being a flip trick. And finally a cork or bio are a regular spin that you throw off axis once you're already in the air.
Hope this helps on a basic level, but really when you get to mhssc see what your coaches say on how to throw it to achieve that.. To throw those tricks differently from each other can be tricky and I'd explain but itd be easier if you're doing it on a tramp in front of them so they can give you pointers.
this man is absolutely correct although the explanation is a little iffy.
oddly enough i was thinking about today and there is actually no such thing as a switch underflip. to figure out why you need to loosely define the difference between a rodeo and an undy
ok loosely without getting into crazy specifics:
rodeo: flip over your shoulder in one direction, spin the opposite direction
undy: flip over your shoulder in one direction, spin the same direction
you can go switch and do a rodeo. If you try to hit a jump switch, filp over your shoulder, and spin in the same direction the trick becomes a switch OVERflip. thats just the way it is. you use the pop of the jump when youre going switch rather than UNDERmining the pop of the jump when you approach regular
