Default Let's talk about jumps!

Okay...I'm really bored. So I kinda wanted to ask this question and see what everyone on here thinks.
When you are approaching a jump, do you feel more confident on your heel edge or toe edge?

Me it's def the toe side. Doing a jump on my heel edge never works out for me.

I try to approach on my toes but take off flat.

the challenge for me learning jumps was establishing a rhythm of turns leading up to the jump and getting comfortable riding flat for the last 10 feet or so before the jump. I invariably do a small toe side turn just before going flat

My last speed check is always heelside if I'm riding goofy and toeside if I'm riding regular. Just ritualistic like that. But my final approach and takeoff are always flat based.

How does everyone land, on an edge or flat?

Flat on the take off, flat on the landing. Unless I'm trying to spin, and then it's whatever lets me get around and land clean.
