Thanks for the tips and hints guys. I got to try a couple more times this week, but I can't seem to spot my landing. In the air, everything just spins until i feel the snow, then I fall over.
Only got to try it twice or so, we had real icy and foggy conditions. I was on a new deck too, so I didn't feel like going for it. Once I get comfortable about the softer flex on my skate banana I will nail it tho

couple things i noticed:

once you pop off the lip, your bending forward and throwing your front shoulder in, causing you to rotate similar to a cork.

your going into the landing stiff. This wont help you land until you get strait, but once you get strait, youll want to loosen up so you can absorb the landing.

I say throw that front shoulder a little harder and youll have a cork. you really only needs 90 more degrees of rotation.

Haha thanks, but I want to land a frontflip before going for corks. Are frontflips with a 180 really a cork by the way?
The reason I'm going stifflegged into the landing is I can't seem to spot it properly. Any tips on spotting a landing?
