Did you get your front or back walkover first?

Just curious, I already have my front walkover but not my back walkover. Many people seem to find back walkovers easier than front walkovers and I’m not too sure why if you can do both, which did you find easier and why? :)

All of this is generally speaking, of course there are exceptions:

Front walkover has less fear involved, but has harder technique and requires more shoulder flexibility.
Back walkover is more scary, but has less technical things than the front walkover.

I have them both sometimes, although front walkover is more consistent
