I'm ok in the air. My body is stacked over the board and I"m spotting the landing good. As soon as I touch down I think I"m rotating my shoulders over my toe edge or I'm am truly not stacked. Again, very possible. So good advice and time to back up a little bit.

|kysnowboarder||I have had similar problems. I have been coming off lip on heal side..but from reading this it seems I should be flat on lip. Is there ever a time you should be on edge on lip if you are just going for straight air?|

|Qball||I have this same issue too, in fact I completely yard saled it on a jump today because I started thinking too much about popping and what grab I was going to do, and forgot to stay balanced on takeoff. Lesson learned! I went back to just coasting the next couple times then adding a little bit of pop after I got my confidence back.|

When I press down I am going down to a 60 degree angle kinda at the knees.
These jumps have a steep ramp. I think as I'm pressing down it is automatically pressing my toe side down, causing me to pop off the toe edge, sound right. Man I wish I had a video of me to analyize.

|Extremo||Instead of popping of the jump just try coasting it. Some jumps aren't good for popping depending on the transition. And do you happen to have a narrow stance? I narrowed my stance to 23.5 from 25 (due to my limited stance options with a new binder) and I noticed I was washing out on my toe edge on my heavier landings. I ended up going back to 25 and it's much more stable. Just a thought.|

|seanboobs||Instead of doing normal skidded turns on your toe side, get as high up on that edge while stacking over your board (bend your knees). Get used do doing those turns on groomers first, high toe edge to high heel edge. Once you're fluent with the movements, take it to the jumps. Happy shredding|

|john doe||When you pop make sure you're on your toes but not leaning over your toes. It is also ok to go flat base right before popping to make sure you pop strait.|

I went to the hill last night with my un-broken boy and his friend.
I was working everything, groomers, butter, side hits, park, and jumps.
I am getting my speed dialed in good. I feel comfortable on the approach. But I'm getting toe-side heavy as I try to POP off the lip. I'm washing out toe-side on my landings.
When I'm at the transition I get small and ride up the lip, pop off, but when I pop I am leaning forward to get that push, but still flat based. My body MUST be leaning over my edge as I'm washing out on the landing.
I'm not sure this is a good evaluation of whats going on but I think I'm analyzing it correctly. I was hoping to get a video of me but my boy left me solo again ahahaha
