Trick Tip Question : Backflips and how to grab when flipping

Hey guys, i'm new to the forum. I have a question regarding Backflips. A few weeks ago I learned how to do Back Rodeo 5s but i'm still nervous about straight up backflips. any tips? Also I learned the rodeo off of a hip. I can't really grab to well with the rodeo because I just huck and look and it comes around. I'll get a video posted up along with this too. Any input would be sick though.

I don't blackflip, but for what it's worth, I don't usually see people doing grabs during backflips. They don't even really tuck that much. Personally, I see an Indy grab being the easiest.

I would agree with leo. When i do backflips i usually don't grab, because i find it fun to lay them out nice and slow. But if its a smaller jump and i need to stay in a ball to get it around quicker my most preferred grab is melon. However when i do rodeo's or cork's i always grab because i think they look stupid without one.

All you need to do is suck your knee's in and grab it wherever you feel most comfortable, but make sure you grab after your backflip rotation is already in motion or else you might land on your head if you grab too early.

Awesome input, thanks guys. I was just curious because once I smooth out my rodeos and backies, I'd like to try a double backflip into pow and thats why I want to learn how to grab without it f'ing up my rotation.

Personally the three grabs to concider would be, yep the indy, a method (back hand grabbed infront of the back heel) or a tailfish (back hand grabbing beheind the back heel binding). When chucking on smaller hits you may find your hand/arm is alrady tucked low againts your back leg, its easier to grab than you think.

The most important part is just being comfortable getting inverted. Making sure you kow exactly where you are in rotation and spotting landings will help you assess when you can grab that board.

Start small and make your way up. the longer you have in the air, the easier its going to be
