couple things i noticed:
once you pop off the lip, your bending forward and throwing your front shoulder in, causing you to rotate similar to a cork.
your going into the landing stiff. This wont help you land until you get strait, but once you get strait, youll want to loosen up so you can absorb the landing.
I say throw that front shoulder a little harder and youll have a cork. you really only needs 90 more degrees of rotation.

Thanks for the tips and hints guys. I got to try a couple more times this week, but I can't seem to spot my landing. In the air, everything just spins until i feel the snow, then I fall over.
Only got to try it twice or so, we had real icy and foggy conditions. I was on a new deck too, so I didn't feel like going for it. Once I get comfortable about the softer flex on my skate banana I will nail it tho

I would never even consider trying this myself, as I don't have the skill set. So no experience here on ever trying them.
But, your legs look locked and stiff, maybe soften up and absorb the landing???
I agree about the leaning over the toe edge.
Don't know if this is accurate or will even help but it's what I noticed.

|Rodini14||I would try grabbing your legs behind your knees, that'll keep you in a nice tucked position throughout the flip and maybe help with not rotating.|

Now that I've tried it a couple of times it doesn't feel that scary anymore
Thanks, I see what you mean. I'll try throwing my arm straight down to my leg instead of in the front of my body next time.

|SkylineGTR||Nice, 3rd one was close. Keep your shoulders in line with your board and you should nail it.|
