You're talking in-the-air, 3 full rotation 1080's your 2nd year snowboarding. Sorry but I'm calling bullshit on this, pics/video or it didn't happen.

I could believe it. Some people just know how to spin. Doesn't mean they have any style or can do it over a large jump. They are just able to get the spin around in the most crud fashion. Realy, once you have a 540 the rest is just hucking it harder.

I think he's talking about the "1080 helicopter arm flail to face plant".

Actually my firest year learning was based on your videos and I watched them over and over and I progressed every day, I was happy to find it.

Hey guys! Glad some of you all are finding these videos to be a good resource! To all that ordered keep me updated! I'll be happy to answer any personal questions I can @ my email (n8dahwg@vt.edu) if I am a bit sluggish to get to these forums.

I've gone through the jibbing and jumping vids now, and I'm pretty stoked to get up on the mountain and try some stuff. 'Course I was stoked before just because, but at least I'm consistent .

One thing that bugs me about jumps from hips, and the vids really don't answer it: Jumping from a hip is problematic in that if you hit it too slow you land on the knuckle, and if you hit it too fast you land past the landing area. Both are bad. So how do you dial it the first time? Trial and error? that sounds painful.

Always speed check jumps before you do something off of them. That is honestly something that is more of a feeling than anything but speed checking first is what I always do. The more you get used to jumping in general the easier it will be to conceptualize speed on a jump before you even do it. If youre still really uncomfortable look for others doing jumps and try to get an idea of how fast their going.

Generally speaking when I speed check I try and make sure I don't go too slow. If anything a little fast is ok especially if there is a solid downslope to work with. I just try to avoid the knuckle at all costs.

Exactly the kind of crap I'm worried about. As I'm always saying, I'm not nearly as immortal as I used to be

So Snowolf and N8dahwg,
this is what I thought speed check was, correct me if I'm wrong and you all know I'm new.

I was told to:
  • Scout the feature
  • Watch other people using the feature
  • JUMP, do a straight air jump to get the feel for the jump before trying a grab or rotation trick

Does this sound right, especially the last part

Part of your "ride through" of a terrain park is obviously used to visually look at the features; paying close attention to the landing zones. Along with that, this gives you a feel for the snow conditions and how fast the snow is. It also is a great time to watch other riders and see the speeds they are carrying and where they are landing.
Yes I also would add if youre still uncomfortable don't be afraid to ask the people that are successfully doing it. 9 times out of 10 they will probably give you good advice. Combine careful observation with friendly tips and you should get a great handle on how to adjust your speed.

I would also like to throw out there that wearing knee and wrist guards does wonders especially when you're in the learning phase. I would consider myself a good rider but I ALWAYS wear that, a helmet, and tailbone padding.
