OK so on Friday I decided to try my first invert, and I landed the tantrum on my 8th try, but it has left me with a bunch of questions.
1. I ride regular, and after all those attempts, spread out over 2 sessions, my right butt cheek is incredibly sore, and none of my falls caused me any pain, nor did I land on my butt. Does this mean I am leaning too far back? Has anyone dealt with this?
2. I tried another 8 and didn't land another one, but I seem to be coming down on my board and then sliding out. I fight to try and hold it for about a second, but I can't pop back up. Am I not carrying enough speed into it? Or am I just coming down a hair off and I will perfect it with more attempts?
3. I have terrible bindings. Ones where after about 10 minutes of riding my feet go numb. This doesn't seem to affect my riding, but I have ridden in my buddies close toed bindings and he wants to sell them to me. Would purchasing these bindings improve my ability to consistantly land this trick.
Thanks a bunch in advance
