Learning corks without a tramp?
I'm 16 and my parents think trampolines are the devil or something so I'm not allowed to buy one. I've learned backflips, 3's, 5's, etc. just hucking on snow with no practice but I feel like I'm gonna hurt myself if I go for bigger spins or corks. Is there anywhere I can get some practice in before taking shit to the snow?

Since you live near Boyne Falls, I'll assume theres no tramp facilities nearby... Try throwing some shit off of cliffs, diving boards at the pool or find a friend that has a backyard tramp
For learning corks on snow, just learn 7s and start wobbling then more and more until they get corked. You have to actually wobble it tho, will feel super awkward the first couple times (this is how I learned on tramp)
Carve as you’re taking off, lift your outside leg, grab safety.
You can learn cork 3s without a trampoline just as well as with a trampoline
Your bones are still made of rubber when your 16. You won't get hurt from landing on your side a few times. Send 'er
Fuck man, Im pretty much in the same situation, My parents think i will become paralyzed or something on a tramp lmao, I just use a friends tramp or go to the public pool and do shit off diving boards, Theres alot of resources on youtube for learning tricks, so i just download the vids and try them when im there.
