I would highly sugest learning on a trampoline before you go hucking backflips. Back flips are 50% commitment 50% skill. Your not going to land it if you dont commit.

I already knew how to do backflips on a trampoline before I could do them on a snowboard. I found a nice spot (non resort) built a little booter and went at it. Make sure you got pow to land in because you are going to eat shit.

I've never done a backflip on a trampoline but I can do them standing up on flat ground. It's all about core muscles and commitment.

If you can't do it at all, look online for some videos, and get a friend or two to help you out/get used to the motions.

You're probably hucking it around that's why you're landing on your neck. You need to throw it from your hips and core muscles so when you pop up you want to lift your chest up as you arch your back and use those abs to bring it around. The first time I did one on snow I made it around perfectly but was expecting to each shit so just fell over.

I can do them off the side of a pool, but I've yet to attempt it snowboarding. If I can do it pretty easy standing what are the odds I can at least get the rotation around first try on the board??
