Hi everybody, I would like to help you learn the “no look” backflip or the Rheeder flip or as I call it usually – the late backflip. The instructions are in the video that me and Chris (PSBMX boss) made in Osijek, Croatia right after the FISE stop. This trick is perfect to use during practice on your next dirt jumping or slopestyle competition.
Cool thing about this trik: you can see the whole rotation (start to finish of the backflip) and that will give much more control on your backflip AND your backlip photos will look like you doing a frontflip. I didn’t learn this one in a foam pit but just by trying it while flipping dirt jumps. To sum up the video below: I start the backflip and look for the top of the landing as long as possible, I also move my body in the air to let me see the landing as long as possible and then turn my head around then I find the landing right away and land smoothly. I stole it from Rheeder but I also develope my own style to it. I still think that Rheeder does it a little bit better, nicer for sure. This post will be shared on facebook also, so if this video helps you get your late flips diled hit me up on email@example.com and i’ll be happy to post your clip on our networks. If you know Rheeder tag him in the comments and let’s see what he thinks about this HOW TO, maybe he’ll give you a different advice :).
P.S. there is more clips after the HOW TO finished, don’t miss them.
