Ok thanks to Snowolf & Professor & everyone else that posts and helps others
I'm new to the whole scene and have read and watched tons of videos/posts.
I went to the park for the 1st time ever and had a blast. I rode my 1st box, and my 1st jump. I tried to use much of the good info that you all have shared.
- Scrub speed early
- good approach
- keeping knees bent
- ride it out rather than trying to save it ( used this one, saved my arse lol )
The exits to these features were very icy and large ruts but over all I did very well. Nothing broke or hurt is a huge plus!! I look forward to continuing my learning and hopefully improving with time and practice. I really want to do a 180 on a medium size jump and my year would be complete, start small like everyone says.
Thanks guys! I had a blast with my kids in the park
