I tried one this season....landed on my back. Ow.

I didn't get the right "pop", and I was leaning forward to much.
Make sure you are perfectly straight when you pop.
My friends advice- lean back, pop off nose HARD, tuck and land.

Good luck:thumbsup:

* Practice nollies first, the pop will be different then on a tramp
* make sure to suck in the knees
* Practice in powder if you can

If you have the rotation on a trampoline it shouldn't be too hard, just concentrate on getting a good nollie and after the nollie it's basically a hand-less cartwheel motion.

The key is popping off that nose nice and strong, then the rest should be cake since you're doing them on a trampoline already.

As far as learning terrain, powder is best, but since I doubt you have access to powder right now, the next best thing is going to be either a knuckle or cat track towards the end of the day when there's a lot of soft spring slush to land on. Be prepared to get a little wet though :p

edit - oh and some of my whistler friends have a trick tip video which has the basic motions as well:

The biggest part is just full commitment for the trick till the end. It is the same as a back flip you don’t keep looking back the whole time you end up under rotating the flip. When starting the trick you can also roll off a lip down a steep section of the mountain. I used my shoulders and hands at first to get the trick down and now i feel ok somethings doing it off boxes that angle me high.
