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??

Oh and do you have to go bigger to come around on a cork 3 or are they about the same?

Whoa, am I out of it.  Thought this was a question about tuning...  What the heck is a cork?  A corkscrew?

never done these on a skis, but on the trampoline Cork 7 are WAY easier than corked 3s.

 

JNeagle can tell you for sure as he can actually do these.

Yeah, my goal is to learn to cork by April, as you can see, I don't even know what kind of cork I am shooting for yet, that's how far I have to go to get to that point.

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

^^ haha i love the commentator's description: mixes the water with a little flour, adds the yeast, preheats the oven, bakes it, the dough rises, and he delivers a fresh Dinner roll. Funniest thing i've seen today.

Ok, I do need to get better switch though, but I see where you're coming from how it would be easy to land way backseat and not be able to bring it around on a cork 3.

Oh and once you can do 5's fairly easy, its not to hard to learn the 3. At least thats how it went for me.

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!!
