I tried it into powder so for me it was not scary at all. But I guess you just have to be motivated enough to be able to do it.

I was able to land my first few, they were blowing snow into piles on a closed run and you could use the peaks of the hills to flip off of, I'm trying to gety myself to tuck a bit more to make the flip a bit faster.. Once you try it for the first time you'll realize it's not that tricky

Yeah it is not tricky at all. Just have to do it the first time and then it should be fine

I have only tried a few of these. I can land them in powder but the only time i tried it in park i landed right near upside down I think its a confidence issue for me, hopefully try em again this year.

For park, what do you guys think would be easier doing it off the lip of a jump or side skipping it and flipping off the knuckle of the landing into the sweet spot?

Seems like it has to be hitting it off the knuckle would be easier.

So I've finally started trying them (for 5-6 days now) and can tell you I'm frustrated as he'll that I haven't landed one yet!!!!

I always seem to get to the point where my tail is facing down (270?) then hit the snow (powder), so underrotating, I do the start really quickly then kinda stop spinning in mid air!!

Also I'm mostly doing it on my pow stick (163 sick stick) could this be a reason maybe?? (This is because the snow is softest in the mornings and I take my Parker out at night when it's harder

Help me team!!!!!! (Have watched the sa YouTube vid as we'll)

Thanks alwaysb

I have yet to land it clean either. I want more powder so my balls don't shrink up. But to me it sounds like you need to load the tip a little more and really pop off it. It will give your spin more momentum. But I'm just guessing. I got the spin but I squirrel out on the landing.
