Alpine Valley in East Troy.
Once my boy heals up maybe 1st or 2nd week of March were still gonna try and squeeze in Granite Peak. Hoping weather will be on our side. Another week of 50's and we'll be done for the year. The warm up really killed the hill we just got back 10 minutes ago.

|Mooz||I thought your speed was fairly good. The back lean did you in. Whatever you can do to reduce those setup turns go for it. If you have to start crackin some skulls in the drop line so be it.|

Our jump line is usually long and there is a lift that feeds the jumps too. Well you guess it, we get a lot of people cutting into your line as you are coming down. If I stopped and dropped in it wouldn't be good.
I was going to try this but on crowded days, which this was, it's very hard.
I stopped my turns at the point I thought I had enough speed to drop straight, I need a little more speed. All part of learning.
Going Saturday hopefully some more/better progression to share.

|Dcp584||Dude forget what everyone else is telling you go big or go home!!!! Take that backward lean and just keep it going all the way around till you have a flip!!! Thats how all the cool steezy kids do it!|

Instead of checking the whole way down just ride normal then a stop few turns above your straight line point. From there, point it (this should give you enough room for a correction or two as needed).
That jumps isn't so hateful if you knuckle it. Change your stop point higher and higher as you need to. Really would want to get comfortable riding straight at the jump and judging what speed you actually need. This will allow you to focus more on eliminating your body's natural "fear lean".
The biggest key to jumps i've learned is to come in loose and light on your feet. The more you tense up in anticipation of the ramp, the more likely you are to lean.
In all though it looks good. Keep at it!
