When making comments like this, try to keep in mind the experience level of the rider and understand that the key to become a better rider is to make steady progression at a pace that reduces the risk of injury....
Heh, I guess that makes sense, although being a younger chap my progression came in bursts of balls rather than a steady development The only way I could keep my balance at first was to blitz it, probably not the best idea, and thinking back, definitely not the best advice, but hey, worked for me

The issue isn't my arms it was that i wasn't perfectly flat based when i left the jump. I had a very slight edge set. After i corrected this i was able to get all of my grabs going.

As others have said you need to be much more compact. Keep your back straight but bend at the knees and at the pelvis. I had a hard time understanding when people told me to keep my back straight but get lower. Don't let your back bow but in the hip area you can bend. I like watching torstein videos as he is quite compact.

Good luck
ok i will try that next weekend. thanks

john doe It seems you open your shoulders before ever feature and that is what is causing you to go squirrelly.

i will try to get some good clips this season and put an edit together. i learned down rails so that opens up another ton of tricks to learn
