Step Down vs Step Over jumps?

Just read the terrain park info on the Seymour website. Funny I've never looked at this page before.

Daily Park Info | Terrain Parks | Mount Seymour

The Northlands terrain park is where I've been going. I understand 'step up', and that's the jump at the bottom end of the park. Step down vs Step over sounds like it should make sense, but the two other jumps aren't really that different. I guess the lip is higher compared to the knuckle on one of them. Comments?


Error 404. Coffee not found.

I can't really say much about the jumps at Seymour,there's not many pics. But a step down usually has got the takeoff that's about 5-10 feet higher than the knuckle of the jump.

Step overs have usually a 5-10 foot drop off at the edge of the takeoff, but the knuckle rises so that it's the same height as the takeoff, reducing the impact if you were to come up short.

The only problem with those step-overs is if I hit the knuckle, I kind of bounce and then fall pretty far past the landing.
