being able to do a standing back tuck and land on your feet is a good foundation for any backflip.

^ everything I've read heard or seen basically consists of .... can you do it on the ground? no? can you do it on a trampoline? no? Don't fucking do it.

You should at LEAST be able to do it on a tramp and into a pool (seperately of course) before attempting. The ground backflip isn't a must, but will definitely help.

This is the trick I'm looking to add this season, so I'll add what I've been told is the "secret"...

OPEN YOUR EYES AS WIDE AS POSSIBLE AND KEEP LOOKING UP(back). Commit fully, and once you see the ground you should be able to land it.

Both guys I've asked are around my age(30)and have said is easier than it seems if you are a strong rider.

Easiest trick after the frontside 180 in my opinion...once you learn it. if you commit to it, even if you dont make it around all the way it shouldnt hurt..usually. (btw I guess I should say I am talking about the wildcat style) Never really liked the style of the back tuck ones, but everyones different. I think wild cat is the one to learn cause once you can do it, you can do it off of anything, you pop a lot. So for me and a few friends we could backflip a lil kid jump/mound at 1ft tall to a flat landing, or the 70footer, makes no difference in difficulty really.
