That already happened with tamedogs last season... I filled the core with shredded napkins and marine epoxy. I just viced it down for like 3 days to solidify.

This would really make me feel invincible if I had that along with me.

hell no bro....just wait till we get a nice amount of snow, find a hill, grab your shovel and some friends and pile up a shit load of snow and build a jump....
spend the day workin' on the timing and stuff there then take it to the resort...
you'll be glad you did, it'll give you better understanding and the basic skills to try it without a pow landing.
you're young and think you're invincible.....but you're not
just cuz you have a neck brace and a helmet doesn't mean another part of your body couldn't get thrashed. Not tryin' to scare you, just want you to be safe and progress the SMART way.

+10,000. I know I'd be a lot more eager start jumping if I knew I was landing in waist deep pow.

When on a board, I think I could get the rotation of the flip. Except, I don't know how I'd do with adjusting for the angle of the landing. What I mean is... I feel like I'd be flipping at the angle of the jump itself, while not being able to position myself in the air for the landing.

I'm planning on doing a lot of airbag practice this season before I balls up and commit to a real flip. But... an airbag is a flat 90 degree landing... not a 40 degree or whatever landing from a jump.

Does this adjustment come naturally? Or do you have to practice to make up for that extra leveling-out rotation?

Thanks!

But fooked up foot came from beach volleyball, not snowboarding. Years of living barefoot or in flip flops. Totally destroyed my arches.
