You should really practice doing backflips on a trampoline and learn to spot the landing and not freak out and try to twist your board to get the closer foot (often the wrong foot) under you. For a backflip, when you see the ground (when you are basically a little past halfway in the flip and completely inverted), you need to consciously pull your legs under you and get ready to land.

I can backflip on a trampoline without any problem. I have been told that instead of trying to send it over my heels like you do on a trampoline, I should try to send a bit of my rotation over my back hand to help me set up for my landing. This weekend my mountain will finally set up their air bag. I'm going to practice to the bag for a bit to avoid injury since I'm not landing properly. I will probably post another video on Saturday of me having either learned it, or showing the air bag attempts asking for help.

As for just hucking myself, I would not call it that. I spent several hours contemplating the trick and it's risks, and made sure to have on a helmet ect. I tried my best to spot my landing, which it becomes open to me after the first 180 degrees, but I am having trouble getting my feet back under me. I think I either need to spin cleaner, (actually that is obvious) or send it a bit bigger.

In the second video I popped a bit too late. If you pause on my pop in the first video it's right as my front foot was leaving the lip. If you pause it on the second video it was just as my tail was leaving the jump, so my rotation was not as fast, which is why when I realized I was not flipping fast enough I yelled 'oh shit' and tried to throw my legs under me.

To embed Vimeo or Youtube... just take the video code and stick it between a YOUTUBE or VIMEO tag.

As for hucking... it is semantics... I call hucking any type of jump where you aren't really sure how to land yet (i.e. you can't easily visualize your body position through the air and you don't know here you are in the spin while you are doing it) and you are likely to crash (and perhap get injured). When you are hucking... you remember the takeoff and the moment before landing, but the rest is kind of an unconscious blur.

Practicing on an air bag is a great idea.

Didn't you post some videos of yourself doing corked spins off a backyard kicker a while ago... what happened to those videos?
Must have me mixed up with someone else. I never tried any inverts off backyard jumps.

Also idk what you mean by video code. (Idk if you mean the video URL, or embed HTML)

Halldor Helgason's God Backfip Xgames 2011 - YouTube

In the meantime, When I was talking about trying to send backflips more over my backhand I mean like the one in this video (not to mention Halldor is the son of God)

See how He goes more over his back hand but it's not a full on cartwheel like how Mark Mcmorris does doubles?

I thought it was you... you posted like a bunch of clips... when removed/blocked them soon afterwards (kind of like what you did with the video you started posting in this thread).

Anyways if you click on "Go Advanced" you will see more tag options... one for youtube that adds a youtube tag that looks like (remove the slashes) \[YOUTUBE\]RV_FhWc0T4U\[\YOUTUBE\] and one for Vimeo that's like \[VIMEO\]<videoid>\[/VIMEO\]. Stick the videoid in those tags and you are set.

That's still basically a laid out wildcat (backflip cartwheel style) if you don't tighten your body to maintain it "sideways" you will again naturally "open up your body" so your chest facedown hill. I often end up doing this even when I try to do a wildcat.
