      Mike Boyd learn the monkey flip and start tucking also jump straight and not back put your hands higher(over your head)

      You need to focus on getting more vertical height. Currently, you just have horizontal and that’s why your not getting the right flip. (I just learned yesterday so the process is fresh in my mind) Try thrusting your arms straight up and keep your shoulders over your knees when you jump. Also if you can, go to the beach and try it off a small dune. And also buy a trampoline( it will really help)

      if u do backflip then try to jump up not back if u jump up u got more time for spining :)

  • William Beldam Løkke

    I tried to learn a backflip on the beach from the very start, where the only thing i landed on was sand. The reason I was able to do that, was that I had a good spotter, if u have someone u trust to spot u right, you'll be able to do way more.

    What helped me with fear of going backwards Is leaning back and land on your hands in a bridge. It gets you used to going back and putting your head towards the ground.

    I tried learning a backflip on foam a couple days ago. I flipped and hit my lip on my Xbox and now my lip is cut open xd

    The ground is lower than the foam. You need to set the floor where you take off equal to the height of the foam. I think your already did it.

  • Stephen Dolzall

    It will help a lot if you try to start on the mattress and land on the mattress. You are putting to much force backward and not up, therefore not having enough time to complete the rotation.

    Dude this is impressive, it took me years. Try it on a trampoline with no bounces, then do it on a mattress on the ground but start from on one and go to another so it's an even level.

    Hey Mike, I just want to say that it took me 6-8 years to actually learn to backflip on the ground. I had been doing backflips for years and was even good at it. One close call freaked me out for years and hindered my advancement. My advise would be to keep trying and to spend time with people who can already backflip on the ground. Their excitement will help motivate you to get it. Persistence is key!

  • SkitZ GaminG
    SkitZ GaminG 2 months ago

    feel free too keep trying. go to a beach and try on sand before on a hard surface.
    my learning curve was exactly like this.
    though i can say you arnt tucking enough and you arnt jumping straight up. you are losing some of your hight by jumping backwords rather then straight up you are losing too much air time doing that. once you master jumping straight up your fear will go
    practice jumping straight up and tucking your knees to your chest then add the next step by swinging your arms back to give you momentum
