I find doing a grab is actually a lot easier to do than a straight jump. I started out with a simple Indy grab. Grabs keep you stable.

Word of caution though: Do not reach down for the grab. Bring the board up to you for the grab meaning suck your knees up to your chest. If you reach for the board, you'll be off-balance.

Another thing that causes problems is over-thinking it. When I was learning suitcase grabs (variant of method), I kept over-thinking it. I used the "Eff it" method and landed one.

Not completely. You do have to get the mechanics down. My situation was learning a new grab. I over-thought it and on the next attempt I just went for it.

I wouldn't necessarily say just do it if you are still unstable in the air. Try the Indy grab I was explaining first on jumps you are comfortable on. Get the feel for being stable in the air.

I am stable on the small jumps but the next size jump is 2x bigger then im on now. I can hit these small jumps all day.



Back in my bicycle days going off a small jump was just that. Going over a large jump to some skill. What am i going to find is different from the small jump im on now to the big ones.

To be perfectly honest, I'm working my way back up to medium jumps. I got hurt a couple seasons go and it sort of took the courage out of me (I'm getting older too). I do know that the bigger jumps gave me more time to hold my grab and actually let me spot my landing better. You know, small jumps are so quick that you really don't have time to spot your landing. Well, at least if you are doing something other than a straighty. It's just that when you fall, it does hurt more haha.
