Deviant Actually a successful report simply means the report was sent successfully. A successful ban is what you're thinking of.

Steery A successful report implies that I have been banned, which is not the case.

Nice try.

Thad Osprey No it wont cause you to flip. I wont try to annoy you and tell you to neck up, but have you tried tuck jumps off normal flat ground (no snowboard, just bare feet or shoes) to see if you'll flip? Makes you wonder why someone posted that. Anyway, flips require you to throw or adjust weight from your upper body i.e. dropping a shoulder, tossing your head forward/backwards etc. Tucking your knees may help. The compactness certainly would. But in and of itself, no. Or we'd all be doing mad spins everytime we grab Indy.

rasmasyean If you're talking about doing a "roll" (as in roll, yaw, pitch)...
No, you will not roll when you compress your body while ALREADY IN the air.
If you do it before you leave the ramp, then you "might" do some unintentional roll depending on how you bend down.

If you want to roll, you would have to jump with the rotation like if you were diving backward/forward into a pool...BEFORE you leave the ramp.

If you are talking about "pitch", then what snowolf says is the way to do it. And in context of what you are asking...grabing your nose/tail while ALREADY IN the air will not cause pitch.

And a shiftie does not cause yaw.
