Tried some frontflips, need help!
Ok, so I finally manned up and tried some frontflips. 6pack of beer = balls :)Would be nice if someone could check my video and provide some tips on how I can stomp it.

bump. Going on a week long trip this Friday, and would be nice with some pointers :)

Leave the six pack at home and grow regular balls?

But really it looks like when ur throwing your shoulder into the flip your also rotating your body slightly.

Nice, 3rd one was close. Keep your shoulders in line with your board and you should nail it.

Now that I've tried it a couple of times it doesn't feel that scary anymore :)
Thanks, I see what you mean. I'll try throwing my arm straight down to my leg instead of in the front of my body next time.

I'll try this as well. I also noticed that it kinda looks like im leaning a bit over my toe edge before hitting the jump. Dunno if this would affect anything :dunno:

I would try grabbing your legs behind your knees, that'll keep you in a nice tucked position throughout the flip and maybe help with not rotating.

I would never even consider trying this myself, as I don't have the skill set. So no experience here on ever trying them.

But, your legs look locked and stiff, maybe soften up and absorb the landing???
I agree about the leaning over the toe edge.

Don't know if this is accurate or will even help but it's what I noticed.

Don't bend toe side at the waist and remember to look for the landing.
