Whats the best way to learn a cork 3?
Title says it all, get after it NS!
Tom's idea of pushing off a wall is absolutely perfect. Pushing off the wall is the motion you need to finish it. The ab flex that gets you back around.
Learn to carve your threes, and it'll start on it's own. The actual cork three should feel like your feet and body kept following the carve up onto the wall then you push off that wall to get your feet back under you. You should look down for the knuckle and spot it at about 180. All one smooth motion.
Most of all, keep trying because you kind of have to work into it before you get truly comfortable and consistent. But dude, when you get there, and get to doing different grabs and stomping, it is the illest trick.
This ^ doesn't apply for trampolines though
Yeah but cork 3s on tramp are different than on snow because you can't carve. It's kinda hard to figure out, and everyone seems to have their own way of visualizing and doing it. I've never done one on tramp, but pretty much have them on lock on snow, so it's not necessary.
Honestly, the best way to learn them is to try them. Repetition always helps you get more comfortable with a trick, and if you just keep trying them you'll figure out little tricks to getting it around. Thats how I learned.
Think of it like a hand drag without the hand dragging
