AASI Freestyle I Cert. help (360 butter)
I'm having trouble finding the technical 2012/2013 list of what I need to be able to do to pass, but I have heard a few things from various sources. 180s off small jumps, boardslides, half-pipe (not sure what, no tricks though), 50-50 landing fakie, and 360 butters to name a few. I know it is all relatively simple stuff, but I have a pure freeride background, and apart from big straight airs and 50-50s, most is pretty foreign to me. I have roughly 14 days on snow for spring break to get it all down, which I think it totally enough.
The one thing that is getting me right now is a full 360 butter... I get the first 180 (sorta). I know I have too much arm movement but I can get the board rotated 180. The last 180 is really problematic for me and I can't even sorta get it... not even slightly. It is as if I am stuck... and I just can't get the damn board around.
Any advice from anyone experienced with the AASI freestyle exams would be appreciated as well.
