Tips on not over rotating flips
Loon just built some bigger park jumps I'm gonna say 25 feet maybe and 30-35 ft and I can clear both of them fine and want to throw a backflip and possibly a flat 3 but since I've been doing those tricks on smaller jumps I feel like I might over rotate too much and slam and on my backflips I can't really lay them out good enough to spot my landing like half way around so any tips on how to time the rotation better?
hit it until your body gets used to the timing then do your flip and if you have a lot of extra air time just open up.
If you've been hitting them on smaller jumps, slow your rotation down on the bigger ones. Make sure not to stall though.
Get a general air time for the jumps. Then huck the backie accordingly. similar thing happened where I ski, they changed up the jump, so I just kind of did my best to get the backie rotation Down. after you do it once, you won't be nearly as nervous, then you will get it dialed
when in trouble huck for double
Real shit though I heard you can open up your stance and that slows down your rotation... whatever the fuck that means
I can tell you those loon jumps are good for flips. I lincolned the first one last weekend and didn't come close to over rotating, the only reason that means something is because if anyone were to fuck up a flip it would be me.
