I think if anything my back hand is fairly good unless i hit bumpy/chopped up terrain. In regular mountain riding my front arm is pretty quiet but I find tat occasionally I twist from the waist.

In freestyle I def am front arm flapper.
I try and keep my front arm to my side but out just a little to guide the landing, but it ends up doing its own thing.

Cutting arms off might be my best option? ;-p
