You just started last February? You're coming along just fine. Don't listen to BA. He's a good dude, but damn he can be a douche sometimes. This was one of those times.
To be clear, I'm not claiming to be immune to that myself.
How's it being a douche he can't jump he puts his body in the wrong position which is why there's all that flailing and pulling the board behind him. Keep doing that and wait till the knee goes pop because he's too stiff when he lands.
