horia.ancas Thanks dkzach,
I will try flat 360 this weekend and see how it goes. I was confused by this trick because I have done a cork 5 here : see video and it was easier because the kicker had more pop and threw the flip easier.

Also, on the last jump I think I grab mute and you are right, it really helps

Anyway, can't wait for the weekend to try them out

dkzach in reality it was a slightly off axis over rotated 360. like others have said learn flat 360s first then for a back cork 540/ 720 think about dropping your front shoulder behind you like your grabbing your back foot with your right hand exept ALWAYS GRAB MUTE haha thats actually the trick to learning to cork spins grab mute and Huck down with your front shoulder. like honestly like a week ago when my buddy told me that I instantly could cork like mad haha, a corked 540 is still a 540 so you will land switch. think misty, if you know what that is, but actually put the spin into your front flip instead of after your flip. hence why front cork 5s are often confused with front rodeos and back mistys with back cork 5s

and a 720 is still a 720. a corked spin is actually less rotation than a flat spin but when doing double corks and such they count a complete flip a 360 aswell as extra spins to name the trick. seen in the video below he links a 360 with a cork full invert flip=720 with a full invert flip and 180 = 540 720+540=1260

Jed If anything $27 per year is too low actually. I've always thought they should be charging 3 times as much for that yearly subscription since you're basically getting 6 of their videos in 1 year.

Each of their regular videos sell for about $25 each, so you're basically getting $150 worth of video training for $27.

SA doesn't do a very good job of explaining the price value on their site, but honestly all their stuff is underpriced in comparison to how much people are paying for snowboard lessons and camps.

SA does look like the shit, but that's a lot of money for some videos. I am just going to try to hit a lesson or two this season.

Come to Sunshine with me tomorrow. Its gonna be a snowy day so good for tricks, or pow slashes

Anyways, yeah. I got my 360's down, and i did, i should say, on accident spin a 720 on a bc kicker. Well it was the size of me, so like 6 feet? I have a problem with spinning my head around so the body follows and im terrified of heights....

I don't mind speed and steep lines, but for some reason I just have a hard time convincing myself to get air of any type. I think I will see a shrink or go for hypnosis. I want air and need air, but keep backing down.
It's a gradual thing, nobody just starts off takin' huge airs. Or @ least not that many

Just pick your spots, drops are easier than kickers for air.
You can launch huge air from a crawling speed, relatively safe.

You don't have to worry about riding up a huge kicker @ 50km/h.
Making sure you pop @ just the right time, but not too much so you don't get all off access.
Clearing the gap. Trying to judge where your going to land, should be 3/4 way up the landing. But don't hit the knuckle.
Fuck I hope I don't overshoot this.

Doin' little ollie's @ a walking pace, much easier.

Just start out small, pretty soon you'll be droppin' huge airs.

As long as it's got a steep landing, it doesn't even need to be that fluffy.

When it is fluffy, know in your head that you can't get hurt & that this is just a fear thing. Scare yourself a little bit, not shit your pants scared but about every 5th one, you should squeeze out maybe a little nugget

If you can all ready haul ass, once your used to droppin' huge airs, doin' huge kickers isn't that far off.
