Learning the corkscrew
« on: November 05, 2014, 12:58:10 PM »
I have a pretty decent j-step and btwist and now I want to learn the cork. I can go to a gym once a week, but I want to train my cork outside of the gym, so my choices are trampoline, grass and sand( and any other suggestions). So how would I go about doing this, I feel like I'll hurt myself doing it on grass so what are your guys' suggestions? Where did you learn it?

my friend is about to learn the cork screw himself. The way he learns things is just by progression and watching jesse laflair videos.

Can you do a back full? And do you have a cheat gainer or regular gainer out of the j step? If not I would recommend getting those down first. A cork is pretty much just a horizontal back full so learning that will help you a ton with the technique and mental aspect. The others will help with getting into the cork.

I find scoot corks to be much easier (personally) than j-step corks. The scoot helps with generating more power for me. It may be because I have a tricking background but I would highly suggest training them.
