I just started snowboarding again this season..after 6 years of winter blues. Glad I decided to start boarding again cause I fell in love instantly.

I'm starting to hit jumps, spins...feeling comfortable again. I honestly think I can hit a backflip.

When do you guys know? What was your first attempts like?


Thanks for any response.

They are about as difficult as doing a basic 360, probably easier. Its about balls and commitment. If you are feeling it, go for it, and commit!!!

If you can hit jumps properly and consistently, then you should be fine to learn basic backflips.

As others have said, it's really as easy as a 360, just takes balls and a soft landing.

Do make sure you learn them into powder or something really soft your first time though, since everyone I know has landed on their head while trying to get used to the rotation. It's all about spotting your landing so you can speed up/slow down the flip.

A lot of times they don't allow backflips, but u could just go for it. Ask for forgiveness in stead of permission

Wait for a pow day and start with tame dogs or nollie front flips. Very easy to get around, you can do them off rollers and much lower on the risk scale than shit in the park.
