any tips on back cork 5s and switch back 5s?
 
i went to camp of champs this summer and i was working on back cork 5s but i kept washing out or not corking to much. i am planning on learning some witch back 5s to piece a run together. any tips?

You're asking this on a forum that is more concerned on which bindings look good on a Never Summer Evo? Ask the pro's at the camp next time.

Sorry, sometimes sarcasm doesn't go well on message boards...

I would also like to get some cork into my spins (still 360 but hopr to get 5s down this year).
Anyone got some good info or a good you tube tutorial on cork?

Tucking is a huge part, but if you're washing out that doesn't seem to be you're problem. Are you sliding out after you get on the landing or more so when you first touch you're board down. Do you get what I am saying, it's kind of hard to explain.

its hard to say what you are doing wrong without actually seeing a video of you trying the trick.

for the most part, your approach for the corked back 5 is going to be the same as when you do a regular back 5. when you pop off the jump instead of trying to spot the landing by looking over your back shoulder and keeping your upper body parallel to the ground you want to throw your front shoulder down more towards your back foot and try looking for your landing under your arm. if done right the first part of your spin should put you almost inverted and you just wanna keep looking under your arm still you see the landing pop up and just focus on that.

as for switch back, the hardest part for me when i learned them was just getting over the awkward approach. once i was able to comfortably approach and hit a jump switch, spinning switch back was just a matter of doing it more

yes i think i understand. some times i am not expecting the landing so i dont put the board dont like i should. should i take it to a bigger jump? i have back 5s down but i want to cork them a little.

It looks like your just not getting enough time. Try to get a little more air or straighten your legs out quicker, not sooner but try to get your legs out and ready to land quicker than you do now unless you can get more air. You might even want to straighten out the end of your cork a little more so it's easier to land. That looks really sweet though.
