im by no means a pro...but i would say to look at where other guys start, and pay attention to if and how many times they scrub off speed on the approach. that should give you a good idea, and then youll just have to try it out and see...but IMO, i say just go for it, chances are youll go too slow more than too fast when first trying bigger jumps...so just go for it, and dont check your speed...overshooting is not near as worse as knuckling... overshooting can suck if you WAY overshoot and land in the flat, but honestly, if its your first times hitting larger jumps, i doubt youll have that problem...speed is one of the harder barriers to break

bomb it and fly!!!
