This is the eternal question on, sorta' like "which came first, the chicken or the egg?" Heck no, "which came first, the backroll or the tantrum?"

See which one feels most natural and get it. Good luck.

Yeah. The backroll is cool because your progressive edge carrys you through the rotation and wake. Although, the tantrum doesnt seem to have the edge-catching tendancies (when you get rocked learning it) as much as a backroll would. Either or, give um both a try if you want.

I just landed the tantrum the other day, I'm pretty good on backrolls.

I would say backroll, just because there is no edge change and really all you do is look over your lead shoulder.

One tip though, if you're going to try them, don't back off. My worst crashes on inverts was because I was hesitant.

Yeah if you're going to go for a backroll, you have to totally commit to it ninja style. Dont do it half-assed, once youve popped you have to go for it.

Its an all or nothing trick.

learn backroll first. the tantrum is probably easier to learn and land but the backroll will teach proper edging and loading and releasing.
