Nollie Front Flips?

Today we found a sweet steep roller at my hill that lead straight into some man made snow which was super soft. We tried some new inverts into it. I managed to land a few nollie front flips and they are a trick I hope to master. The only problem I have had is over rotation. On 3 occasions out of the maybe 7 tries (under rotated on my first try) I over rotated and either went over the nose or turned in to some weird back 180 out and slammed my face. Any tips on how to help this? Am I untucking too late and should unwind earlier? And help is appreciated.

When you are rotating you need to be in a tucked position. This way, when you spot your landing, you are able to un-tuck at the right time to slow your rotation and land flat. If you are just hucking and hoping for the best then it will always be inconsistent.

Unfortune truth is I am probably just hucking. Since It all happens so fast Im not really able to orientate myself enough to "spot the landing". I was trying to simply go off of noticing when Im upside down and untucking when Im rightside up.

I do it and just land on my back. None of my friends were with me though so I don't know what was wrong. I feel like it's much harder to do it off something other than a jump the first time you do it.

What style are you going, tamedog? If you nollie too hard, you will over rotate, especially if you are off the end of a box, roller or whatever. If you tuck right, you'll get the rotation and it will be more controllable with a smoothly popped nollie. When you nollie, think about popping not just forward (this is what causes the "huck") but forward and up and using your tuck to get the rotation, not hucking it out. In short, tuck not huck.
