|PanHandler||its funny. something that can take maybe 3 minutes to show on a mountain takes 5 days and 11 pages to explain on a forum haha|

Wow, I almost had a headache myself while I was reading this thread for awhile! lol, glad you all were able to get your tricks straightened out for the most part.
I have learned alot from this thread though, thank you all for posting the videos and explaining popping and the ollie in detail. I was one who was new to boarding last year and all I had heard about was the ollie. I watched some videos and proceeded to hit larger and larger jumps, attepmting to ollie off of every one. I was doing ok, but it was'nt as smooth as I wanted. This ollie fallacy I had going actually ended up bringing my season to a close a day early as I approached a medium sized, fairly steep kicker way to fast for my skill level. I was in the back seat as I came off the lip, making sure I got my "attempted" ollie in, and wouldnt you know it.... I ended up 8 feet in the air, with my board straight out in front of me, just waiting to fall back to the park snowpack and onto my left shoulder. I also ended up snapping the core in the front of my board I landed so hard. Live and learn!
After reading through this thread, I'm super excited to get back out there at my next opportunity and work on "popping" off of the jump, the proper way!
Thanks for the insights guys!

Thanks. No wonder.
When I heard pop off the lip, rollers and jumps I kept thinking Ollie. The ollie was throwing me off and I was almost landing on my toes, not balanced
I love that of all the distractions behind you, the one time you peek in the backfield is when the orangutan shows up at the 4:50 mark

Approach jump low. When getting to the transition I pump. That means I extend my legs, but not all the way, leaving a little spring so that when I hit the lip I pop off, extending my body all the way. Then pull the board in a little so I don't land on locked knees.
Is that correct? Just want to know if I pump up or down

|IdahoFreshies||not really sure honestly. the group (err, mob) is camping in the Area BFE lot, and its planned for 4 days of wheeling and probably some hiking.. Its a massive tacoma meet, at least 65+ camping with 100+ people interested/confirmed going. at first i was pretty adamant on not going because i didnt think i could build my truck in time, but after looking at all of the videos and pictures of the landscape and scenery there was no way i could miss that event, i would regret it for years to come. that place just looks so epic, and the scale of the group and the camaraderie will make for an atmosphere truly unique. i <3 utah|

Anyway, lipslides are a lot harder (for me) than boards. The act of rotating so your back foot goes over feels a lot different. That difference is probably the reason skaters came up with that naming convention. I drew this little masterpiece in paint, maybe it will help. It's hard to do with still pictures.
Now snowboarders want to try to do smith grinds, feebles, nose smith/scum, overscum/nose feeble ... it's ridiculous, snowboards don't have trucks so i don't see a point in naming those.
