slyder Great thread, I only saw chomps mention this briefly and this is not about pop but I think should be addressed as it is part of the "whole picture"

Body Movement while in the air ?

I'm not an instructor with years of experience nor a great park rider, that said.
I have good form and pop, now.

I have noticed on the bigger jumps with a kick having to shift my body weight forward. If you go off a kicker it will throw you up and out mostly up. If you don't shift your body while in the air, it is possible to have your board come out from under you and land very tail heavy or worse case, which I have seen often coming down and landing on your ass or flat on your back.

So the analogy of the BMX using throttle or brakes to change the angle of the bike in the air would apply here as well

Hope I didn't muddy the waters to much here

If you go back to the first page of this thread I posted a photo of the timing for pop.

You want to be crouched and ready to pop as you reach the uphill ramp of the jump, then popping as you ride up the ramp and finishing popping just as your board starts to leave the ramp.

you are analyzing this to death, do 100 park laps trying what feels best for you, incrementally increasing speed and size of jump. you will learn much more by doing that than by reading what everyone here has to say.
i'm not taking away from the great advice the board members have given you, but i think the time has come to strap yourself in and give er, learn by doing

Iir, i believe you should be in your "crouch" as you enter the bottom of the transition zone for the jump/kicker, whatever. You then begin to straighten up as you ride up the transition and ideally you time it to be fully extended just as you are leaving the lip. That provides the "pop!" No doubt I will be corrected if I'm mistaken!

Redline Basically, go fast enough to clear the jump, then jump that shit. Don't think about it too much.

F1EA In the MTX the throttle and brakes rotate the bike (+rider) about it's (their) centre of mass. The centre of mass still takes the same parabolic trajectory.

When you pop off a jump your body will be thrown in a parabolic trajectory, but the whole "balanced pop" intention is to keep your body balanced throughout the trajectory so that your snowboard and you keep a somewhat constant centre of mass thru the jump (ideally you on top of your board in a riding position). You are not modifiying your trajectory (well, you are depending how much force you apply right at the crest of the jump; but the parabolic shape will remain); instead, you are keeping your body balanced during this trajectory.

The more you move your body around and modify the center of mass in the air, the less stable the jump will be. Even if you land face first, your center of mass took a parabolic trajectory.
