How to Backside 540 Corked Spins – (Goofy) Snowboard Addiction Free Tutorial Section


Corked BackSide 540’s
If you find backside more natural, start by learning corked BackSide 5s.Learning corked
spins on a trampoline before you try them on a snowboard is a safe way to ensure that
you understand how the rotation works before you start hucking yourself.It also allows
you to break a trick down so you can learn it in stages.Warm up with some 360’s and backdrops.
Try spinning into a back drop as a stepping stone.Spin into a back drop by dropping your
shoulder as you begin the spin, you should rotate approximately 270 degrees Backside
and land on your back. Do this until it feels natural and then try to continue the rotation
after your bounce to finish the 540 and land back on your feet.Once you have practiced
doing the corked 540 in 2 steps, try to do it in one. If a tramp board is available try
doing it with the board on and playing around with different grabs to see what works best
for you.When it comes to snow, find a medium sized jump that you are comfortable spinning
off of and warm up with some normal back 5s. This trick is all about staying relaxed, nailing
your set up carve and letting your weight fall back towards the tail of your board as
you pop on take off. Approach the jump with the same set up carve that you would use for
a normal BackSide 540, shifting from your heels to your toes. Stand up tall on the take
off, and as you pop let your weight shift back towards the lip of the jump by altering
the angle of your release slightly and paying attention to the imaginary rings.The amount
of ‘huck’ in backside corks is very small, most riders will find that grabbing with their
backhand and looking at their tail is almost enough to put them off axis into a corked
rotation.

  1. man wish i could find a quality instructor like one of you guys next time i go boarding. I only go once a year for 4 days or so … Invested 400 bucks for a private lesson from an Aspen instructor who didn't give any tips or how to break down tricks and start small. Any advice on what i could do? I wonder if I could buy a "tramp board" and take it to one of those trampoline places like rebounderz…
