Default I had one of those "FUUUUUUUUCK!" moments today

Today was my first day in the resort where I'm staying and I decided to run laps in the park all day. The whole day something about my riding didn't feel right so I decided to ride it off as usual and stick to the medium kicker line. Unfortunately the jumps on this line are a bit cramped so you have to set up very quickly for every next jump. On my last lap I didn't set myself up right on the takeoff for the last kicker and was carrying a shitload of speed. The moment I left the lip I was aware (too late) that I was not in control of my trajectory and immediately and instinctively let out a loud, long "FUUUUUUUUUCK!" I landed sideways on my ass which tore my (rather tough) belt buckle off and my trousers fell down. Miraculously, I wasn't injured. I was really lucky!

What do you guys do on an "off" day to get back that feeling of fine control?

I will double check all my gear to make sure it's set up correctly. Something didn't break, shift or get put together wrong. I will then analyze the terrain, is it more icy than normal, etc...
If everything is normal I will ride somewhere or something else. Different trail set, practice small tricks, take a break. Might just be an off day, a good day to do something different.

I apply this to many aspects in regular life more than boarding, and works in many different life situations.
Glad you only tore some clothes, sounds like it could have been worse.

get pumped up on music and hit stuff super fast hopefully triggering an adrenaline rush to kick off the laziness

I had one of those yesterday...I came in without speed checking and the take off was a bit icy which didn't help...it was prob a 20 ft kicker and I cleared the entire landing and landed flat which jolted my whole body

...i let out a long "FUUUCCKK!!" in the air too cause I thought i was done and I guess my grab helped me stay together...scary stuff

Ialmost fell into a creek yesterday! There was like an eight foot deep hole that I didn't see untill I was almost on top of it. I had to superman dive across it and cling to the opposite side. I somehow managed to climb my ass out. Definitely a scary experience
