Dude forget what everyone else is telling you go big or go home!!!! Take that backward lean and just keep it going all the way around till you have a flip!!! Thats how all the cool steezy kids do it!

Our jump line is usually long and there is a lift that feeds the jumps too. Well you guess it, we get a lot of people cutting into your line as you are coming down. If I stopped and dropped in it wouldn't be good.
I was going to try this but on crowded days, which this was, it's very hard.
I stopped my turns at the point I thought I had enough speed to drop straight, I need a little more speed. All part of learning.
Going Saturday hopefully some more/better progression to share.

I thought your speed was fairly good. The back lean did you in. Whatever you can do to reduce those setup turns go for it. If you have to start crackin some skulls in the drop line so be it.

I have a word limit on my cynicism

I would do this, without the flip adivce. You dont have too much to loose if you fall on these smaller tables really. These jumps you can easily just go for the landing zone or even a little further down the landing. It will also help you guys to stop going slowly over the jump without clearing it because if you try that on a 30+ footer you wont be doing it for long. If you love getting over your feeling of fear you will progress naturally.

This thread brings me back....... And good luck everyone.

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're so close! Honestly the last 2 turns, skip them, and you'll have it perfect. The only other things: If you pause the video right as the nose of your board is leaving the lip, you'll see your trailing arm is rotating around (forward) and causing your shoulders to face downhill a bit. It's a normal thing for people to do when they're learning, but if you look really close on the run in before the lip that back arm/hand is already starting to come forward. Totally understandable due to nervousness, but keep that arm behind you, not off to your side, as much as possible. Lastly, when you're landing, take it deeper to the knees. Your knees are bent a bit but you aren't compressing, when you bend your knees more into the landing you'll feel the landing being a ton more stable. This is an important habit to get into especially down the road when you're doing tricks that may put you a little on one edge or the other when landing.

Take that deep breath and long exhale on the run in when it's messing with your head, by the looks of things you're going to have straight airs down pretty soon.

Alpine Valley in East Troy.

Once my boy heals up maybe 1st or 2nd week of March were still gonna try and squeeze in Granite Peak. Hoping weather will be on our side. Another week of 50's and we'll be done for the year. The warm up really killed the hill we just got back 10 minutes ago.
