Welcome. Yep on bs 540s the landing is blind for most of the trick (all you see is sky), then it comes into view right at the end. A big part is knowing where to look to know where that landing will appear as you rotate.

I've done a few corked fs 540s, but not as many since I prefer misty flips to underflips. It's pretty much reverse to how you initiate a backside cork 540. So instead of throwing your lead shoulder towards your back leg, you throw it in the opposite direction (throw your shoulder upwards and towards whichever way is frontside for you).
