In the latest Relentless Energy Pro tip video, Tyler Chorlton explains that, just like back flips, front flips are actually pretty easy as long as you commit fully to the trick. Oh, and you keep your arms by your side. And keep your eyes on your board. And all the other little things you need to do to avoid landing on your head.
Tyler and his pet moustache show you how to nail this trick off both big and small jumps, and he makes both look ridiculously easy.
i) You land, then go over the nose: you've thrown the trick too hard.
ii) You land on the tail of the board but can't stand up: you've not put enough force into your throw.
iii) You land, then catch your toe edge and faceplant into the snow: you've twisted frontside a little during the frontflip. Square your shoulders a little and use your back hand like a tiller - pushing it so it faces directly back up the hill as you take off.
iv) You land, then catch your heel edge and get whiplashed into the run-off: you've put a little backside spin into your trick, again, keep your shoulders lined up and keep looking at your rear foot.
