Go for a grab. Start with a simple indy grab. It'll clean your jump style up immediately.

when you do a grab, hold it there. don't just touch and release, otherwise it'll make you look even more sloppy.

All I got because Snowolf said it all is don't move when in the air. Keep the hand next to your body while riding to practice. pretend they are almost duct taped to your body. As soon as I screw up the takeoff just a bit, I do the swimming for olympic gold trick. Really hurts the steez and all that...

xD

Picture is worth a Thousand words.
  • I thought my back was straight
  • I thought my legs were brought to my chest not vice-versa
  • Thougt my shoulders were lined up
  • etc etc.....

I will be taking all this info in and practicing more, thanks for the help guys.
Sidenote: I rode my 1st rail yesterday went 1/2 way first few times and actually rode the whole thing 2x.

This, I believe, was a bad take off...back kind of straight but bent at the waist, shoulders closed, knees a bit sucked up...no grab though...well maybe my balls lol.

square up before take off.. keep your shoulders and knees in sync in a line with your shoulders matching your knees..
most park jumps all u need is speed. u don't need to ollie just use speed and the lip, square up and stay compressed.

I would say the jumps i am getting over are the size of jumps in Slyders pics. I can clear them with no problem. I can clear them with a grab as well. What do i do to get ready for the next jump? I would say the next jump will get me 2x the air and distance. Do i just go for it?
