[QUOTE=Donutz;520199] Approach speed is the factor I'm having the most trouble with, because I have a deathly fear of overshooting, so I tend to over-brake.

What you said reminded me of the second time my buddy and I went to Breckenridge. He blasted down park lane at kicker and had way to much speed. He had roughly double the speed needed so he ended up landing flat on a giant kicker at the base of the down ramp. Luckily he only bruised his foot and had no serious injury, but it could have gone much worse.
