shin-bangobviously im not a pro... but ive been experimenting with my backies this season. youve got the gist of it, and that jump looks absolutely prime for them.
1. be a bit more patient on the take off. pop at the top of the lip and initiate rotation, then spot (it will come around a lot easier). rather than leaning back. it didnt seem like you were 'leaning back' that much but just a little something that should help.
2. TUCK THEM LEGS BACK and ARCH THE BACK! . i think- touch my heels to my butt, and arch my neck and backwards as far as theyll go. between the bent legs and arched back youll be able to SEE a lot more. When you are directly upside down it looked like your legs were bent but your top half was lagging. for reference, this is a similar sized/slightly smaller jump on me. previous attempts i didnt tuck the legs back and had my top half lag. it didnt come around. Legs tucked back, boom it came around with ease
3. Lastly, arm position. you can keep your hands at about your hips, and upon hucking, bring them up and keep them forward. you can either keep them out and extended which sets you up for a nice 4 point landing, or you can keep them at you side/hips and just stomp it todd walnuts style. ive found that stretching the arms out helps me get my upper body around which helps me spot the landing better.
who knows, im sure im doing a few things 'wrong' too, but this is what has helped me immensely this season. Im curious to others input as i will test it out as well. Good luck brotha.
