Default Where to try a backflip?

Hey guys first off I'm new here but I've been checking out the website a lot before. Okay so I am going to try a backflip tomorrow and i want to know where I should try it. There is a small quarter pipe at my mountain (like 10 feet maybe) I was thinking that may be good or I could jump out of it where its a few feet tall and try. there are also a few small step ups and kickers right now most everything is rails or boxes. I know the how backflips work I can do them on the ground, trampoline, on walls, or whatever and I can do corks and 7's and front flips easy just have not tried the backflip yet. Oh I want to do the normal backflip not wildcat I have already done those. Any other tips would be cool too. Thanks

Find a jump that has a good kick to it, something that pops you up and not out. It's critical to pop then flip. If you can do them on the trampoline then its pretty similar. Look straight back and suck your knees to your chest once you get in the air.

this is what i do, i go to a closed trail that they are piling snow onto and try them there. It is soft snow and a lot of it.

Thats what I would like to do but I ride at Bear Mountain in California and we don't get a lot of powder or anything I can try it into we don't have a bag jump or anything either.

Perfect I know a good spot... Do you think a QP would be good, or no? It definitely looks easier.

I know mountain high had that airbag thing last year so maybe they will have it again and you can try it on that.

Yeah a QP might be an okay place to try one. With that though make sure you pop away from the top because you dont want land on the deck

I'm a little surprised at the question. You've done backflips on the tramp; you can do 7s and corks so you're not a noob; and there are vids aplenty on youtube.

What info are you missing? Or are you maybe looking for comments from people who can remember the first time they tried it?
