I know the landing isnt perfect but that was the first time I ever tried it
I also think being able to do it on a trampoline (just a side flip) really helps because u get the feel for it and stuff...
Dang that's a pretty good first try... . How'd it feel to land it?

Yeah powder does help but sometimes you over spin and your nose digs in which isnt very nice haha
My advice just dont try to land like you would normally on the slope, but a bit leaned back and then you should be fine becuase your nose should float above the snow after that. Helps me

FWIW... people who can do them have always told me they are as easy if not easier than doing a 360. You just have to commit...

that said, I never have the balls to commit. I keep telling myself every season, this years the year... i'm gonna fucking do it but every time I get myself all pumped and psyched out I approach a small jump to attempt my first ever tame dog.. I say fuck that... and ride away lol

Great news.... after two weekends of trying/failing on landing a tamedog. I landed my first tamedog on my first attempt today. It felt amazing.

My local ski hill (Canada Olympic Park), is only icy groomed runs, so I usually get pretty banged up after each attempt. But today they had a nice roller section, and it was a bit warmer too; making the snow a bit softer.

Now I just need to figure out how to land it again. After landing it today. My next 7 attempts I under rotated. and the 8th attempt I over rotated (super scary on a groomed run). All I can remember, was during my first attempt today I had a really good nollie, and it felt like I was spinning in super slow motion.

Also props go to snowboardaddiction, their getting up side down video helped me alot on this trick. Super stoked about landing it today.
