Lord_Byronget 5's down, then get backflips down. Learn how the rotations should feel, get really comfortable. I think of rodeo's as "backflip plus rotation", and just focusing on the flip feeling is the only way i can do them.
VINCE.By the...I didnt try rodeo 5 like for my first trick ever... I have 1,3,5,7,cork 3 and 5 and underflip.with a bunch of grabs down. So I just thought I at a point in my progression where I could try a rodeo/flat 5.
VINCE.exploded myself (luckily) on my back
PaulBystricanPersonally, I think a rodeo 5 is a way different set then a "backflip plus rotation", yeah maybe that might help abit; what helped me the most was getting it dialled on a trampoline or off a diving board. Then all you gotta do is make sure you set properly and it will come around super easy.
john18061806You need to be more confident and have it down on lock on a tramp first. It sounds like you just shit yourself with an unfamiliar rotation, and rodeo 5 is a really alien rotation compared to everything else.
Huckasorassyou don't dive anything forward in a backflip
HuckasorassTo me if your diving your right shoulder, AND thinking of it as a backflip, you mentally fucked yourself with which way you should rotate... you don't dive anything forward in a backflip, your getting mixed messages, rodeo doesn't = backflip
NMMediaI wouldn't say you need to tramp it, I've never learned a trick on tramp before snow. But It may help if he has access.
john18061806Tramps help exponentially, you are either a progression monster or have a body of steel. I've tried a bunch of tricks on an airbag and got them around first try but I just don't have the balls to take them to snow.
