It's a gradual thing, nobody just starts off takin' huge airs. Or @ least not that many

Just pick your spots, drops are easier than kickers for air.
You can launch huge air from a crawling speed, relatively safe.

You don't have to worry about riding up a huge kicker @ 50km/h.
Making sure you pop @ just the right time, but not too much so you don't get all off access.
Clearing the gap. Trying to judge where your going to land, should be 3/4 way up the landing. But don't hit the knuckle.
Fuck I hope I don't overshoot this.

Doin' little ollie's @ a walking pace, much easier.

Just start out small, pretty soon you'll be droppin' huge airs.

As long as it's got a steep landing, it doesn't even need to be that fluffy.

When it is fluffy, know in your head that you can't get hurt & that this is just a fear thing. Scare yourself a little bit, not shit your pants scared but about every 5th one, you should squeeze out maybe a little nugget

If you can all ready haul ass, once your used to droppin' huge airs, doin' huge kickers isn't that far off.


If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality
