Scrubbing speed before jumps..

I see people doing this... seems like anytime I try to skid it throws me off to where jumping is pretty much a no-no because I'm not ready for the set up for spins anyways....

was just curious exactly how some of you do this... I ride goofy... and I think what I've been trying to do is a quick heelside plow back to straight.... I don't see people doing this, so I figure I'm wrong plus... it isn't working well so I figure doubly wrong lol...

please help... my knees hurt.. and the kids with tight pants are laughing at me when I rocket towards the moon and land on my face...

hopefully it won't be funny if I'm going slower and face plant.

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

I'd recommend not scrubbing speed at all and instead, just dropping from a lower point (closer to the jump) and going straight from there. Any type of speed scrub (with the exception of a small carve while setting up a platform for spins) will only throw off your balance. When learning to jump properly, just practice going straight.

Once you get this dialed in, it will be easier to judge speed, hit jumps and land on the tranny every time.

Good luck!

If you're quick edge to edge a short heel then toe (or vice versa) carve can scrub off a bit

You need to time it properly which is what I think you're doing wrong. Assuming you're just going for a straight jump, you're probably scrubbing off your speed too late in the process (ie just before you board touches the base of the ramp). Do it a little earlier next time so you can regain your balance before the board enters the ramp zone and you should be good to go.

for jumps id say maybe a quick check far away from the actual jump but if you try to carve etc. when youre close to taking off, it will most likely throw you off balance and youll fall...

rails/boxes/jibs thats a different story

Get speed dialed in farther back so that by the time you are hitting the takeoff ramp, you are stable with no need to adjust anything....
Well said Wolf. Stability will allow you to send it properly.
