How To Barrel Roll Backflip On A Snowboard


Barrel Roll Backflips are gonna feel the
most natural on a trampoline. No angles for takeoff and landing make this the
easiest way to start learning, so if you’re just getting into inverts on your
training board this is a good place to start.
Stand facing forward as you would normally on a trampoline. This will have
you standing at 90 degrees to your Regular or Goofy footed stance. From this
position bounce into a backdrop, holding the board straight up in the air as you
hit the trampoline. Then pop from your back into the flip. This will help you
get the feeling for the inverted part of the trick and give you a good idea about
how to spot your landing. The full flip is going to take a bigger bounce and a
little bit more momentum from your arms and upper body. As you extend your legs
to bounce, push out with your hips and arch your back into the flip. Swing your
arms up and back for some extra momentum and follow all the way through with your
bounce. Make sure you’re jumping upward on your
initiation. As you arch your back and swing your arms into the flip look
upwards, this will place your head in position to spot the trampoline early
which will make it easier to know where you are in the rotation and when you
need to engage your core muscles to pull your legs toward the landing. This tutorial is filmed at Whistler

improve your riding.
