So, today I had a freak out over boxes. Just could not make myself hot any even though I've done them quite a number of times before. Maybe just because last time I tried on my new snowboard I gave myself whiplash. Not quite as forgiving as my other hybrid.
Si just focused on jumps. Def going backwards with my progression, worried about Roxy camp and not performing well.
I cut my speed too much and still find it impossibly to pop from two feet. I find myself launching with the front of my board higher than back, but then landing evenly.
I don't get why this is such an issue. Managed to convince someone to come with me but I'm worried I'll lose my temper!! Haha.

Casual & Poutanen- If I had someone to film or even to ride park with, I could probably fix this problem myself based on what I was seeing, not having that person to help is doing me no favours. My friends are more fond of riding warp speed laps (which I am also not very good at)
You could pop rather than ollie off some rollers, or do you need to use ollie-ing only for rollers?
No not getting air off the rollers just riding, they are fairly small on Whistler and on Blackcomb even riding fairly fast in the terrain garden I still don't get air naturally.
I am kicking myself that I find other things fairly easy but the simple stuff like straight jumps... I don't see anyone else struggling with it and that makes me even more angry haha!
Thank you all for your replies too :-)

As you hit the transition, crouch. As you come up the ramp on the jump, gradually straighten up, timed so that as you hit the lip you'll be extended as much as you want to be (not necessarily standing straight). You don't even have to put a lot of effort into it. It just seems to send you into a higher orbit.

I seem to have a lot of issue with pop. NO idea why and its driving me nuts. I dont know if I am trying to just ollie (I can ollie fine) off or and just starting too early. I dont get any pop but I do feel like a dead weight.
Same issue off rollers. I am getting really mad at myself here.
