Skinny Bam those 2 small jumps they usually have at bear that are after that flat part with the rollers(right after where they usually put the 50ft rail)....might not be a bad place

I just wanted to know like where I can try it with the least risk. I did not know what the best jump would be like a QP something super popper or whatever else. Trying a backflip just seems alot different from the stuff I am doing now. I just don't want to land on my head haha I know I can do it if I commit I just have to go for it then I'm sure it's pretty easy.

chad23 Yeah i got that vibe too. But backflips take a different type of commitment than a spin does. The biggest thing is commitment. Just gotta believe you can do it

chad23 Yeah a QP might be an okay place to try one. With that though make sure you pop away from the top because you dont want land on the deck

ShredLife you want to find a spine.

Perfect I know a good spot... Do you think a QP would be good, or no? It definitely looks easier.

Thats what I would like to do but I ride at Bear Mountain in California and we don't get a lot of powder or anything I can try it into we don't have a bag jump or anything either.
