MF-HARPYeah been wondering about flairs as well, how do you throw them? I know it's a backflip 180 but finding it hard to visualise
yeah it's basically a backflip 180 on a qp or half pipe wall, and it's a great trick because it's extremely low consequence (at the size youll be doing it, at least. obv when pipe skiers send em far out theyre dangerous haha). most likely scenario you land on your butt/side on a vert wall and slide out, no biggie!
come into a nice qp or halfpipe wall-- as said by deepskier, dont scrub all your speed, you lose it in the tranny a lot anyway-- and POP hard as you throw your head/shoulders/core down and to the left away from the wall
those are my directions to get started. id give that a shot and let us know how it goes, or if you have questions now id be happy to answer them
great, fun trick that you can try a lot without almost any worry of getting hurt. im not a good pipe skier by any means but ill still toss a flair on an icy pipe no problem, it's just not a dangerous trick and is really forgiving
