The cork is just an off axis rotation. You had a single off axis rotation, you start goofy and land goofy..... cork 7 is 2 full off axis rotations. Cork 10 is 3 Cork 12 is 3.5.

Triple cork 1440 is 3 feet over head flips with 4 off axis full rotations.
Double cork 10 is 2 flips feet over head and 3 off axis spins....

Look the videos up online and count the spins vs flips and watch what the judging calls them.... There are a lot of times they call them corks that it really isn't because your supposed to have the board/feet pass over your head while spinning for it to be a cork.... I just got out of a 3 hour acrobatics class doing tramps with kids that do these corked out tricks... Doubles and triples. Hard to watch in real time and count....
