On that subject, the guy before her got on just fine, and didn't seem to be putting any more effort into the hop. Was it just a matter of speed?
Not just the speed, I think she was putting to much weight on the front foot, to scared to get air off the jump. Kinda like when you lean forward a little so you don't fly off rollers at high speeds.
I'm not sure if I'm articulating it right, but like the rainbow fail you posted.. kinda like how your supposed to hit those without leaving the rail.
