So this year I have a goal for the end of the season to learn how to cork. Basically I was wondering which is easier, cork 3 or cork 7??

Honestly, i always thought cork 5's and 9's were easier to bring around. just felt more natural. It took me a long time to get cork 3's down, nevermind 7's, because when i came out of the spin i would always be facing up and land way in the backseat. When landing switch it is natural to land on the tips a bit, which made it easier to land it. I'd say go for a 5 first if you're comfortable riding switch
I agree with learning the 5 first. The 7 is the same rotation, just keep looking. The cork 3 has a different axis of rotation, but they are tons of fun.
For the 3 just watching the landing through a 3, the whole time. You can use this same technique for a cork 5, sometimes it will look more like an underflip, but feels great.
How do your corks look on a trampoline? That is the best way to learn!!
