Lightbulb What's easier, frontflip or backflip?

So I've been snowboarding for about 2-3 years. but this season, I'm going to learn how to do a flip. Which one is easier to do: a frontflip or backflip? and what tips, videos, or suggestions can you give me? no answer is wrong, just no fighting lol.

At least with regular on your feet flips, going back is easier to do than a front. Gravity helps out a lot for a backflip. Best way to find out is find a nice padded or grassy area, and a spotter and trying doing flips. Once you get comfortable with that, then you can take it to the snow.
