Crankflip Problem

Crankflip Problem

Post by Unisykolis » Wed, 01 Oct 2008 17:30:42


When I do zero-plants I flip the cranks with my left foot. But when I
try to crankflip I can't because I do a rolling hop and position my
cranks so that the left crank is facing backwards because that is my
main ***. I push down on my left foot to bring me up into that
position but I can't kick the crank backwards because thats doing it
reverse.

And if I try kicking the crank with my right foot with a zero plant, I
just can't and it doesn't feel rite.

That's an interesting problem you have there.  You're gonna have to work
through it otherwise landing them might be more difficult.. unless you
would be doing 1.5 rotations in your flip in order to land it in your
jumping platform.  I think you should skip the zero plant part and work
on *** issues.  Also, does "I push down on my left foot to bring
me up into that position" mean that you mount into your jumping platform
(in your case left foot back), or do you mount with your other foot and
then roll half a turn to get into position?  I do the latter, and I
think that would make zero plants harder because you don't want to jump
off the uni onto your weaker leg.

That was a mistake on your part.  In knowing that your *** foot is
your right foot, you should have taken the time to learn zero plants
that way.  Anxiety sometimes gets the best of us and we want to learn
tricks quicker when they are easier, but if it jepardizes what you want
to learn in the future, then it isn't worth it in my oppinion.  
Work on zero plants with your right foot forward,and good luck!

OK, I guess the only thing I can do is to...either skip zero plants or
practice them with my right foot kicking.

I dont think zeroplants helped at all for crankflip, neither did
crankflip plants.
But now that i can crankflip i find it easy to do double zeroplants and
footplant flips.
Maybe because i never did doubleflip plants they never helped though.

I agree, I hit a bit of progress today,
_YouTube_-_Crankflip_attempts_(VIDEO_087.avi)_,
and found that my zero plants got way better.
EDIT: WTF?
