From experience, I'd say that jumps are one of the most dangerous things to do snowboarding so take your time. Patience is your friend. My worst falls EVER were from jumps.

|DiamondCarver||I went the path of SPAZ last time up and was hucking back 3's off a 20-footer and landing multiple times on my back and chest, and even over-rotated to a 540 and faceplant. Good times good times, especially since i'm 17 and made of rubber haha but i think if i ever want to actually land them i'll have to progress properly.|

Video tape yourself, it really is nice to see and show others to help pinpoint what is going right/wrong.
I'm in same boat. I thought I would be throwing 3's by this time of the year, haahahaaa not so. I'm still trying to nail straight airs consistently.
Start small, get them solid and keep adding from their. Grabs, shifties, then slowly move to a little bigger jump and start again getting everything down solid.
Keep us posted and post a video.

|SPAZ||Being someone who is starting jumps too, I must agree with everyone. I went off a 20 foot kicker on wednesday and went for a 3 before landing pretty hard on my back. I learned my lesson and I am going to stick to the smaller stuff for now|

|justdust||I was impatient with jump progress and then outpatient at E.R. Take your time and acclimate. Think about it...you are off the frigging ground...of course it takes some time to get used to!|
