I have almost every trick down on a trampoline except the whirlybird. For some reason when i try it, i throw a really fast tantrum 2 blind. I have landed them before but for some reason I cant do them anymore. Some mental block i guess. Any techniques you recomend?

just concentrate on doing a backflip with a full backside spin. Hold on to the handle and use it to kinda spin yourself around. Start the rotation then throw your arm over your face to go faster. Float the flip completely laid out and concentrate on your arm spinning you.

The biggest thing that helped me was like thane said. Throwing my arm in front of my face.

I used to be able to do them last year. Because I didnt stick with practicing it, I lost it. About a week ago I just spent a day trying to stick my whirlybirds again. It helps if you open up your shourlders and lay your body out, and then swing your arm around your upperbody. If you lay your body out during the flip, it helps you to spin while you flip. If I ever get my fire wire to work then ill try to post a vid.
