MaimHelpId land some floaty 7s and then go for a cork. Idk tho I’ve never corked or done anything above a 5😂
jprene8I agree with Miamihelp in that I can’t spin well, but you said you’re good with 5’s. Can you fronty and or backie? Because I’m thinking maybe it would be easier to throw a rodeo 5 or misty 5 than learning a cork 7 if you can’t 7 on skis but can 5 on skis if that makes sense.
keagan.karstensI know for a fact rodeo 5 would be the easiest to learn but I have my mind set on the cork 7 but maybe I’ll learn that first
keagan.karstensOkay so basically I’ve never done anything bigger than a straight 540 on a jump. And my mountain recently built a kicker that’s big enough to cork seven. It’s not huge, but it’s plenty big. I can do 5s and 7s on every axis on the trampoline so I have a pretty good idea of how I would rotate on a jump. I’m just afraid I’m gonna hurt myself trying it.(specifically I have cork 7 on my mind) but also wanna try rode 5s cork 3s and some bios. So any advice that will convince me that I’m fine would be great.
CoachTrifesYo ! Imma put it out this way - when i was a kid back then i just went for whatever i was able to visualize in my head - especially when i was already able to do into the swimming pool of a diving board or trampoline.
That's the young send it approach.
My rational adult ass would now probably tend towards this:
do a straight 540 on skis , do a straight 720 on skis. - get comfy with those and then go for a cork 720.
Why ? Well you might be able to handle yourself mid air - but at the end of the day you have to do the in-run, take off and landing with skis on. So you're best of getting comfortable as much as you on doing any tricks leading up the cork 7 on your two planks :)
you don't miss out on learning the basics first. trust me.
Oh and speaking of hurting yourself - yeah unfortunately thats the risk you have to take. But - there is nothing better in the world than the first attempt of any trick. That's a unique feeling you'll face on any first t's. Once you landed it and learned you probably end up saying -" jeez what was all the fuzz about it - that wasnt that hard" haha...
Good Luck champ & watch my cork 7 tutorial - i talk a lot about how to control the inverted part.
