Default Measurement of Jumps

I was wondering how a jump is measured . I hear all the time 35' stepup, 50 foot kicker, etc, but i was wondering what was actually measured. is it the distance from the lip of the kicker to the knuckle. Is it the length of the kicker(start to lip) or is it the height you get launched?

Thanks

It's based off the square root of your penis exaggeration multiplied by the power of the gaper to the 5th power divided by how good you are at ea shred.

If you ride Blue Mountain, PA, it's the distance from the lip to the knuckle + 30 feet.

If you don't ride Blue Mountain, PA, it's the distance from the lip to the knuckle.

Is the knuckle the first place my hand hits after I eat shit or is it where my hand ends up after I roll and slide.
