Sorry Shredlife My bad!

Horia, I'd say it was a corked 540 that was under rotated. You got to 360 but never got that last 180 around properly.

Hate to break the news to you bud, I'm pushin' 40.

I was tryin' double back flips last week.

As a fellow Canadian, I find this unacceptable. Step up your game son.

Nah, just fuckin' whit chya, kinda

I don't have much game.....so theoretically it should not be too hard to step it up

I don't mind speed and steep lines, but for some reason I just have a hard time convincing myself to get air of any type. I think I will see a shrink or go for hypnosis. I want air and need air, but keep backing down.

It's a gradual thing, nobody just starts off takin' huge airs. Or @ least not that many

Just pick your spots, drops are easier than kickers for air.
You can launch huge air from a crawling speed, relatively safe.

You don't have to worry about riding up a huge kicker @ 50km/h.
Making sure you pop @ just the right time, but not too much so you don't get all off access.
Clearing the gap. Trying to judge where your going to land, should be 3/4 way up the landing. But don't hit the knuckle.
Fuck I hope I don't overshoot this.

Doin' little ollie's @ a walking pace, much easier.

Just start out small, pretty soon you'll be droppin' huge airs.

As long as it's got a steep landing, it doesn't even need to be that fluffy.

When it is fluffy, know in your head that you can't get hurt & that this is just a fear thing. Scare yourself a little bit, not shit your pants scared but about every 5th one, you should squeeze out maybe a little nugget

If you can all ready haul ass, once your used to droppin' huge airs, doin' huge kickers isn't that far off.

If you have rotated at all, thats better than me! Although I have landed a few 180s, but not many

Come to Sunshine with me tomorrow. Its gonna be a snowy day so good for tricks, or pow slashes

Anyways, yeah. I got my 360's down, and i did, i should say, on accident spin a 720 on a bc kicker. Well it was the size of me, so like 6 feet? I have a problem with spinning my head around so the body follows and im terrified of heights....
