liner Wait for a pow day and start with tame dogs or nollie front flips. Very easy to get around, you can do them off rollers and much lower on the risk scale than shit in the park.

Aw3bb A lot of times they don't allow backflips, but u could just go for it. Ask for forgiveness in stead of permission

zackmorris The problem about a soft landing is living in the midwest.

Thanks for the replies thus far..really appreciate it guys.

Jed If you can hit jumps properly and consistently, then you should be fine to learn basic backflips.

As others have said, it's really as easy as a 360, just takes balls and a soft landing.

Do make sure you learn them into powder or something really soft your first time though, since everyone I know has landed on their head while trying to get used to the rotation. It's all about spotting your landing so you can speed up/slow down the flip.

seant46 They are about as difficult as doing a basic 360, probably easier. Its about balls and commitment. If you are feeling it, go for it, and commit!!!

I can do backflips on a trampoline easy. I'm honestly worried about over-rotating.
