I'm not sure what you're looking for, but I can take a guess: when do you carve off a booter to clear it?
This is a pretty difficult feat, props to people who can do it (Took me a half season to find the sweet spot).
1) You're impressing nobody
--> 100 feeler hits > 1 season ending case
^pretty much the most important element with big booters. The feeling is the desire to showboat, even on the guinea hit. Try working past this.
Anyways, the best advice is to look at the lip and pop @ the lip. I've killed myself too many times from popping too early and undershooting shit. You can hit something with the same speed - straight line vs. carve - and undershoot simply because you popped too early.
Look 'where' you are carving. So many people (i was guilty) will look behind themselves before take-off, which generally results in popping too early (nerves). After a few hits, you will get the feel of the booter and be able to actually 'huck' blind, without undershooting; however, this requires a lot of trust with the booter you are hitting.
- at least, for me it does

|merchomini||im gonna say u need to reverse the order of your post, first you need to learn and get pretty good at carving then you need to start worrying about the jumps. I feel like iv seen alot of people get hurt that just wanna jump on a board and straight line it to the jumps. Progression bro.....|

Snowolf did a good job explaining the ATML of jumping. Check out this video on first snowboard jumps. Everything applies the same for big jumps, just add more speed (and big is relative as stated above).
We also have a video on learning to carve a snowboard, and this is real carving, not just turning. Carving will help in all your riding, so work on that more.
Good luck and have fun!

|HoboMaster||Sorry, that's what I meant. Like you said you want to land on the downhill slope of the jump landing. And yea, I don't know, carving is hard to explain. More then anything it is just the peak of being able to make fast and smooth turns.|
