mattytruone of my younger brothers best friends just broke his neck on a backflip attempt (which he has landed before). not a good outcome, cant move most of his body, but is hopeful about progress due to increased movement of fingers... really gnarly shit
nolliebackflipYou guys must remember that getting really seriously injured by doing a backflip is very rare. You can die skiing a straight slope for fucks sake. No reason to be scared.
Sk3islyfSo like I’m pretty pissed off I never tried a backflip on skis this year because at the beggining of the year I said I would. The Saturday before my mountain closed I said I would 100% try one next week. But sadly... next week never came 😢. Anyways, the reason I didn’t try it earlier was because I was too scared to break my neck or some shit. I’m totally capable of doing backflips but I feel like I would find a way to screw it up on skis. Anyways, has anyone or anyone you know actually broken their neck while trying a backflip?
chef_boyardeepretty sure you want a reasonably steep landing. landing flat hurts, especially if u don't make it to your feet. Should be chill if its a step up tho.
