only weighing 120 does matter IMHO. i weigh more than that but i'm still a lightweight, and we skinny fucks have to really find the sweet spot in the tail as well as having to work harder to keep speed. 160-170 is about perfect for shred gymnasticalisms

you might try messing around with the mounting position of your back binding if you think you aren't getting good pop every time.
yeah, i figured that if i had a little more weight in my upper-body area, it might be easier to rotate around that new center of gravity.

also, about the binding setting, you mean like move it towards or away from the tail to make it more mushy/stiff right?

@BA, did you use a tramp to help out with the flips, initially? or just in your backyard on the ground

thx for the replies, btw
