Well I'm getting more comfortable and trying to work on my form.

YouTube - M4H02018

I know I need a little more speed and keep my arm still, but getting there.
Not trying to pop so forcefully has helped quite-a-bit

you look uncomfortable. why don't you try being more aggressive toward the jump (and ollie). also... did you end up landing on the hump?

No I"m not at the ollie point yet. I toned down my pop and am just doing a smooth pop off. I did land on the down ramp, not the knuckle.
I know I still have a lot to work on, baby steps.
I still have a little forward lean, and I'm trying to correct that.
When I watch the video and from riding it it sure seemed like I was going much faster than what it appeared. Like I said I need more speed. It felt like I pulled my knees up but I may need to tuck some more.
Keep that back arm a little more still front arm seemed good.
Keep shoulders stacked over board a little more, better than it was.

I actually was going to try a grab a few times but I didn't want to push it.

That looked like an "oh shit " jump if I've ever seen one. The only problems I see is the nervousness on the approach and turning your shoulders forward. If you look at that frame there your left hand is past your toe edge and your right hand is way past your heel edge. Both of those will be fixed by simply getting used to jumping.

hahaha, not an oh shit moment, but a what am I doingm moment.... lol

Yes I am still getting comfortable and your correct once I get my shoulders more squared I think I'll be good. I did have some better jumps this is the one that the pic was of. But then again, if I had a pic of those who knows what I was doing wrong.

My lower body looks great though :-)

The other small thing you did was not match the angle of the landing. You had to straiten your right leg to get the board to land flat on the snow. Once again that seems to just be from being nervous about making it past the knuckle.

Too many setup turns. You're causing yourself to over think the jump and with all those turns, making it hard to setup properly flat based. You're also in the backseat too far as you head up the ramp. Try getting a little lower and staying centered. You don't have to pop off of a lip like that but you can once your get more comfortable. The backseat is killing you. You had to compensate for the takeoff by throwing your body forward in the air. That's why your trailing arm pushed out like you were trying to shove yourself forward.

Take a step back and find some rollers to ollie off of. Once you get more comfortable with that pop you'll be better suited to handle table tops.

It all comes wth time. Don't be afraid to take a step back now and then so you can make two steps forward.

Great tips, I will concentrate on this.
Unforutnately our hill only has very small side hits or these. So I am kinda force to learn on the bigger jumps.
The setup turns were more speed controll. I know I should just find a spot and drop straight but that hasn't worked either.
I will try to keep the speed checks down as I do need more speed and as you and snowolf have pointed out, leaning into the ramp a little more, gonna work on that this Saturday.

Thanks all, slowly getting there

Instead of checking the whole way down just ride normal then a stop few turns above your straight line point. From there, point it (this should give you enough room for a correction or two as needed).

That jumps isn't so hateful if you knuckle it. Change your stop point higher and higher as you need to. Really would want to get comfortable riding straight at the jump and judging what speed you actually need. This will allow you to focus more on eliminating your body's natural "fear lean".

The biggest key to jumps i've learned is to come in loose and light on your feet. The more you tense up in anticipation of the ramp, the more likely you are to lean.

In all though it looks good. Keep at it!
