That's the part I'm stuck on right now. I can go small, and land them no problem. But I want to know the angle the board should be pointing at when I go bigger/faster. So are you saying that the bigger/faster I go, the more of a 45degree angle the board has to be with the landing?

Also, I can go small and land fine going backside air, I'm goofy. I'm still trying to get the hang of going frontside, it still feels a little weird.
