My first 5ish backie attempts I over rotated to my back and was fine cause I had a back protector but prob would've been okay. Caught tips once and got a concussion. The root of all those crashes were letting my knees bend on takeoff. Lead with your hips. and don't sling your head.
tip catches are my worst nightmare, had a minor one happen last week tryna nose butter in absolute slush but last season I was tryna daffy and caught tip and went full nosedive before I could catch myself with my arms to avoid getting KO'd
Ive done both and over rotating is far better. Back in high school I was zooming around and hucked a backie off a cat track, caught my tips, snapped one of my skis, split my helmet, and got a concussion.
