Whitey161 Reading this post angered me. Seriously why have you got people coming here to comment and slag this guy off because he doesnt hit these huge booters.

WTF is snowboarding about? to me its geting out there and having fun, this goes alongside pushing yourself and YOUR ability. He wants some advice on hitting a larger kicker than he has done before. What is this 'my jump is bigger than yours?'.

As for my advice i hit the largest kicker i've ever done for the first time in tignes 3 weeks ago. Was on the red run, about 7 ft high and 15ish ft flat-top. Much bigger than anything i've hit before. Scared me poopless but you just gotta overcome that fear, have confidence in your ability and hit it.

Sounds like you did it so props to you, progress at a rate you're confortable with and have fun

Didn't realize I would have to go into such great detail to someone that can't even describe what the actual feature looks like or even post a picture of. Maybe you shouldn't be in the park there might be a ride on box that freaks you out.
Hey I resemble those remarks! I just conquered those last weekend

No idea why, the fucking box scares me. I should have hit them instead of reading about them (don't edge, watch your elbows, etc. etc.). But rode it and said, wtf, these are easy. Just don't fucking turn!

Im not sure how to measure jumps though. Is it how high, or how long? I think they were taller than 5 feet though. It seemed that way when I was in the air!

I basically grew up riding Blue Mountain. First hill I boarded at was snow valley back in 1992. Ontario has a lot of people relatively close to the hills, so they have lots and lots of money for good parks. I remember hitting the 1/4 pipe and superpipe at Blue Mountain in the mid-90's and launching off some of the great jumps back then. Saw a guy break his board in half landing one. Plus there's a park chair which is great.

They honestly put the parks of the Canadian rockies to shame, but then again the entire mountain is a park in the rockies!

SnowMotion A couple things that help me when charging a booter are remember your not really afraid of falling im sure you do it all the time even on the first jump. What you are really afraid of is your board not hitting the ground first. So get it in your head that your just going to do a sweet straight air put your board down and it will be like every jump you ever hit. Two, Bigger jumps are all about speed so def look for someone your size riding into the jump if he/she does three turns and knuckles then do two turns. But never speed check unless you absolutely know you have way to much speed. About 15-20 feet away from the kicker with your speed right you should just straight line it! Once you make this commitment to hit it your nerves will calm b/c you are going to hit it win or loose so your mind will put more thought into doing it right instead of wether or not you should do it.
