Hell yeah, thanks for the input guys
theabortionatorDont throw it really. Just pop kind and pish your hips forward and look back. Dangle your legs there. It's kind of a two part even if smooth. The initial pop off the jump, then you snap your legs around to land.
Feels awesome to just chill there upside down and then crank her around and ride away.
For sure, this is where I think I am going wrong. I am popping and throwing back at the same time. I think I can wait to throw back a little longer on bigger jumps. Will have to try this.
NoImNotaBoarderI've never backflipped on snow but I can do really laid out ones on a trampoline and I just try to like let me lower body be loose so when i set the rotation I feel like im trying to get my head around to touch my feet if that makes sense. Once you've got the backflip rotation down, it's super easy to figure out how to lay em out, just make sure you spot your landing and get your feet back under you.
I can definitely lay them out, I just seem to be struggling with slowing my rotation down. I like the head to feet concept.
nelesonIts mostly about the pop with backflips. If you get a good pop of the jump and manage to keep it opened and layd back then you dont really have to set it much and youll have super easy control. Also remember when doing a backflip layd back its really hard to under rotate because you can 90% of the time manage to get your legs under yourself ans like that you have way more control. I dont suggest tucking while doing backflips its harder to control usually.
Definitely agree that tucking is not a way to do a backflip, unless youre laid out and have spotted and need to speed up rotation. I think I need to get over my fear of under rotating and just throw it back easier and trust it.
RusticlesThis is how I always explain it. A two part process, -get yourself upside down.
-assess the situation/hang out and enjoy and bring the feet around.
I guess that’s like three.
Just pop and lightly throw your hips forward and look back. Once you’re upside down, look around, enjoy the scenery and then bring the feet back under.
The bigger the jump the easier they get. It’s almost effortless on bigger jumps
See this is where I am struggling, I know it should be effortless but I am afraid of putting in so little effort that I don't even start a rotation haha.
